Portable Threat Simulator



To combat potential adversaries looking to develop increasingly advanced technologies to defeat modern aircraft, today’s fighters and upgraded electronic warfare (EW) systems on legacy fighters require advanced high fidelity threat simulators. This ensures that aircrew are effectively armed with the skills and knowledge they need to identify threats and take action that will ensure the safety of people and costly assets, whilst also ensuring mission success.


Ultra EWST’s ground-breaking PTS 8000  Multi Spectral Test Set enables flight technicians to comprehensively check the operational status of platform defensive aid systems with a battery powered handheld device, negating the need for costly and cumbersome simulation equipment being deployed to the flight line or hangar environments.

Threats to an aircraft come in all shapes and sizes and can vary in which spectrum channel they utilise. The PTS family of simulators provides flexibility, with the ability to test in radar, UV and laser channels.
