Drumgrange launches Extended Range Matrix for use with ComSim

Drumgrange has developed an Extended Range Matrix for use with ComSim, the product will be officially announced and launched during DSEI 2015, with interactive demonstrations available at Drumgrange’s stand S5-272.

ComSim ERM physically connects off the shelf radios through an attenuation matrix linked to PC software thereby creating a simulated RF environment.  Key to the system is the Drumgrange developed terrain based software that adjusts the attenuation levels simulating relevant degradation in the quality of communications depending on range, weather conditions and terrain types.      

Drumgrange’s ComSim is a radio frequency environment simulator used for the testing, demonstrating and training of military radios within the 1 MHz to 512 MHz bands.  It is in use by Armed Forces and Radio Manufacturers.  The ComSim Extended Range Matrix (ERM) is an upgrade that extends the capability for use with Radios utilising frequencies up to and including 2.5GHz. 

This is an important addition to the ComSim family of products as it allows customers to develop and train on both legacy and new generation wideband radios.

 “The development of the ComSim Extended Range Matrix is an exciting next step for Drumgrange.  As Armed Forces look to push increasing amounts of data around the battlespace using next generation radios, ComSim ERM will allow Manufacturers and Armed Forces to develop, test and train with these assets in a safe and realistic simulated RF environment. With the ComSim family, Drumgrange can provide bespoke RF simulation solutions from a simple test matrix through to a fully net-worked classroom of live training aids as used by the UK MoD for the Bowman Communication Simulation (ComSim) capability”    -  Simon George, Business Development Manager

The original ComSim contract was placed by the Ministry of Defence and has been in service since 2006. Drumgrange continues to expand and develop the range with sales to Radio Manufacturers and Government Agencies in Europe and the Far East.
