Enhancing survivability through the full Threat Vulnerability Analysis and Countermeasure Development (TVACD) lifecycle

CounterWorX – new possibilities for countermeasures

In a rapidly evolving threat landscape, development of countermeasures is complex and costly, and their testing and training increasingly dangerous to engage in the real world.

MASS’ CounterWorX suite of tools enables defence and civilian organisations to conduct countermeasures development, and virtually model dangerous and complex operational scenarios to optimise survivability from lethal engagements when learnings are deployed in the field.

Used by armed forces across the globe, the sophisticated tools reduce the number of points before live testing, significantly decrease costs by limiting time on the range, and mitigate safety risks. All of this opens up brand new possibilities for countermeasure development and testing.

Accelerating advances in countermeasures accuracy

  • CounterWorX enables reverse engineering of threats, with information extracted from threats used to build virtual models. 
  • CounterWorX provides accurate 3D modelling of multi-domain operations to build an understanding of the threat system and defensive aid capability - determining which countermeasures will be effective. 
  • CounterWorX supports post-mission analysis by taking real flight data and comparing with models – providing a deep understanding of mission effectiveness. 
  • CounterWorX profiles data that exists within a threat databaseproviding a full data picture to inform decision making.

Electronic Warfare database integration

CounterWorX is also fully compatible with MASS’ electronic warfare database, THURBON. This enables users to assess the completeness and accuracy of data related to an adversary’s systems, and provides a graphical view and perspective of the available to feed into modelling.

CounterWorX technical features:

  • Aerodynamic modelling
  • Parameter estimation tool
  • InfraRed and optical sensor capability
  • Graphical view of complex data

Key features

  • Flexible and configurable modelling from A2AD environments and complete weapon systems down to receiver/transmitter component part level
  • Enables modelling of any spectral and operational environments within a single engagement
  • Provides a high fidelity, few-on-few, modelling simulation environment to improve platform survivability thereby reducing the need for hardware and field trials
  • Batch-running can be implemented across multiple-cores and multiple workstations without the purchase of additional software
  • Statistically designed batches minimise the required number of runs
  • Supports a collective approach to countermeasure development, including expendables, ECM techniques and tactical manoeuvring

Key features

  • Runs in real time allowing users to operate simulated EW equipment on air platforms against threat systems
  • Provides visualisation that enables an observation of the effect of countermeasures and enhances understanding of the rationale for supporting tactics
  • Data from each engagement element can be recorded and played back or used for off-line analysis when used with ANALYSE
  • Gain experience of realistic engagements from the perspective of either the threat weapon system or the protected platform
