ARDEC Environmental Awareness for Sensor and Emitter Employment

Simulating, understanding, and planning for environmental impacts on signal transmission and sensor performance has become important to many modern-day Army missions. Environmental Awareness for Sensor and Emitter Employment (EASEE) offers the ability to model the effects of terrain and weather on a wide array of sensing modalities through highly realistic physics-based and statistical modeling methodologies.

EASEE is a Java-based calculation engine which provides a flexible, object-oriented framework for defense mission planning applications involving signals and sensors.The software developed by the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, Hanover, N.H., supports many signal modalities including acoustic, infrasonic, seismic, EO/IR, radar, RF, and etc., and is offered as a stand-alone product as well as an integrated GIS toolbar.

As one of the most diverse engineering and scientific research organizations in the world, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center conducts R&D in support of the soldier, military installations, and the Corps of Engineers’ civil works mission, as well as for other federal agencies, state authorities and municipal authorities, and with U.S. industries through innovative work agreements. ERDC has a staff of approximately 2,100 federal employees and contractors, and an annual research program exceeding $1 billion.
