36th EWS IRCM Software

Realizing the had an inability to simulate 1553 data traffic for F-16 communication to ALE-47 countermeasure dispenser system, the 36th Electronic Warfare System requested funds for IRCM Avionics Data Bus Test & Analysis Software. The software provided the 36th EWS with the ability to customize messages with a DDC 1553 card and provided a solution that is now fully implemented for required F-16 message traffic and mostly implemented for HC-130J message traffic with HH-60G and other platforms to be added down the road. Since implementing the software, the 36th EWS has been able to test in the lab the SEMI and AUTO functionality of the ALE-47 on the F-16, ensuring correct functionality of the mission data files in ways that were not previously possible.
