The Joint Advanced Distributed Simulation Joint Test Force JADS JTF was chartered by the Deputy Director, Test, Systems Engineering, and Evaluation Test and Evaluation, Office of the Secretary of Defense Acquisition and Technology in October 1994 to investigate the utility of advanced distributed simulation ADS technologies for support of development test and evaluation DTE and operational test and evaluation OTE. The Electronic Warfare EW Test was chartered separately in 1996 and was designed to evaluate the utility of distributed simulations to the EW TE community. The system under test was an ALQ-13 1 self-protection jammer pod flown on an F-16 aircraft. The emphasis of the test was on the performance of the ADS components and their contribution to testing rather than on the self- protection jammer test item itself. This report describes Phase I of the EW Test, which provided open air range OAR and hardware-in-the-loop HITL baseline data for the following two ADS phases.
