The Tactical Engagement Simulation Software (TESS) product line includes integrated engagement simulations for the following:

Air RF – Radar Guided Weapon Simulations

  • SAM(CG)/AAA: Command Guided Surface-to-Air Missiles and Anti-Aircraft Artillery
  • SAAM(SA): Semi-Active Homing Surface-to-Air and Air-to-Air Missiles with non-coherent Target Tracking Radar
  • SAAM(SA/TVM): Semi-Active Homing Surface-to-Air, Air-to-Air and Surface-to-Air Track-via-Missile Missiles with a coherent pulse Doppler Target Tracking Radar
  • SAAM(APD): Active Pulse Doppler Homing Surface-to-Air and Air-to-Air Missiles

Air IR –  Infrared Guided Weapon Simulation

  • SAAM(IR): Passive Infrared Homing Surface-to-Air and Air-to-Air Missiles
  • SAAM(IIR): Passive Imaging Infrared Homing Surface-to-Air and Air-to-Air Missiles

Sea RF – Anti-Ship Radar Guided Weapon Simulation

  • ASM(AR):  Active Radar Guided Anti-Ship Missiles

Sea IR – Anti-Ship Infrared Guided Weapon Simulation

  • ASM(IR):  Passive Imaging Infrared Homing Anti-Ship Missile

Other TESS Simulations

  • MSR: Multifunction Surveillance Radar
  • ILAPS: Integrated Land Active Protection System
  • IASMD: Integrated Anti-Ship Missile Defence system simulation infrastructure that supports evaluation of combined soft and hard kill ship protection


Each of these TESS products consists of:

  1. An integrated engagement simulation that includes:
    • One or two threat systems
    • Target system with countermeasures
    • Signal environment(s)
  2. A Master Interface that supports:
    • Creation and retrieval of user-defined weapon systems, target platforms and countermeasure techniques.
    • Definition of test scenarios by:
      • Selecting a threat
      • A target and set of countermeasures from this database
      • Defining an engagement geometry
      • Conditions for the simulation
    • Execution in one of two formats:
      • Single engagement run  
      • Batch of engagements in which user defined input parameters are automatically manipulated from run to run through the use of a batch running utility that supports analysis using both incrementally stepped and randomly varied parameters
    • Simulations that run deterministically or stochastically
  3. Options which include:
    • Semi-compiled, compiled or source code versions of TESS
    • Detailed software description documents (only available with source code)
    • Extended maintenance and support coverage
    • User product training
    • On-site installation and user training services
    • Custom features
