AbstractThis paper provides a current review of a new installed system test facility (ISTF) capability for the Air Force and Navy. The requirements, design characteristics, and status of the joint-service Communications, Navigation, Identification Simulator (CNIS) developments will be covered along with their relationships with the Air Force’s Avionics Test and Integration Complex (ATIC) and the Navy’s Air Combat Environment Test and Evaluation Facility (ACETEF) ISTFs. These developments provide the services an interactive spatially, temporally, and tactically coherent signal environment for development and operational test and evaluation. The Joint Communications Simulator (JCS) and Joint Data Link Simulator (JDLS) capabilities, integration aspects, and development schedules (2000 IOC) will also be addressed. Finally, installed system test and evaluation concepts, both Air Force and Navy, using the simulators will be previewed to assist upcoming development programs in identifying potential applications.
