Realistic modeling and simulation of battlefield signal transmission and sensing requires accounting for many complicated environmental and mission-related factors. These factors present complex challenges because of their diversity. Yet, successful modeling and simulation can enable effective mission planning and can support a variety of other military objectives. This report describes the development of a very flexible, object-oriented software design for predicting signal transmission and sensing on the battlefield. This Java-language software is called Environmental Awareness for Sensor and Emitter Employment EASEE. It is intended for application to a wide range of sensing modalities, and for incorporation into military command and control C2 systems, decision support tools DSTs, and force-on-force simulations. An initial version of a user interface for EASEE has been completed and a Java OpenMap implementation has begun. The goal of this work is to make EASEE general enough to be implemented within many software architectures, which will enable advanced signal propagation and processing calculations in a number of modeling and simulation efforts in support of the warfighter and homeland security.
