For many years, hardware development has been an essential step in electronic support measures (ESM) R&D programs carried out in DRDC Ottawa. The objectives of hardware development are: To investigate new electronic support measures (ESM) system architectures: To test new radar signal detection algorithms using field-collected data: To conduct the field trials and demonstrate different operational concepts, and to polish researchers’ knowledge through using state-of-the-art hardware technologies and applying new theories, so that researchers can better support their client from ESM perspective. Experience has shown that designing and building ESM hardware or systems is costly in an R&D environment because: There are a lot of ‘cut-and-tries’ in hardware development where sometimes a new design can be completely different from the previous iteration. It is very time-consuming and labour-intensive to put ESM system hardware together. Nowadays ultra wideband microwave and digital components used in electronic warfare systems are still very expensive. In order to mitigate the problem, reduce the development time, and partially or sometimes fully achieve the objectives mentioned above, model-based system design and simulation using highfidelity behavioural models (HFBM) is a good approach and should be a part of the ESM system development cycle. This report presents how to develop a HFBM of an ESM receiver microwave front-end using measured data and manufacturers’ specifica
