Office of Naval Research STEM ProgramThis project's research objective is to enhance the Navy's Electronic Warfare training environment, and deliver these 3D enhancements to NSWC (CRANE) for testing and validation of Electronic Warfare (EW) training improvements. A researcher at CRANE has identified a missing link in the current system: there is no representation of 3D RF signals in EW training simulations. The investigators are using this proposed research to advance the knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) students for potential careers in the Navy. Therefore, this project includes four research tasks and two educational tasks to provide a balanced experience for STEM students. Together, these tasks will create a meaningful 3D visualization of the RF signals in the warfighter's training simulation environment and will introduce a new collaboration between Electrical Engineering and Informatics faculty and students.
