Abstract : Althoug many methods of realistic environment generation were considered, the method selected is based on the use of actual Army electronics equipme t, slightly modified to enable automatic control. The location and number of the environment generators is determined by the application of certain reduction factors to a realistic tactnario. This paper presents the philosophy of environment generation, in conjunction with an explanation of the methods used to achieve its implementation. The control system required to perform valid, automatic testing in this facility is described in detail. The overall control system is subdivided as follows: (1) an automatic control system which provides control of the environment generators as well as recording test results, and (2) a frequency monitoring system whiccal scenario. This paper presents the philosophy of environment generation, in conjunction with an explanation of the methods used to achieve its implementation. The control system required to perform valid, automatic testing in this facility is described in detail. The overall control system is subdivided as follows: (1) an automatic control system which provides control of the environment generators as well as recording test results, and (2) a frequency monitoring system which ensures proper frequency usage and valid test data.
