Threat Representative Environment (TReX™)

Threat Representative Environment (TReX™) is a better way to experiment, train, and plan next generation signals intelligence (SIGINT) and electronic warfare (EW) operations.

What Is TReX™?

TReX™ is a software and COTS hardware-based signal emulator. It is an easy to setup hardware and software suite that enables users to conduct true testing and evaluation of EW systems and techniques as well as enable effective training of warfighters and systems with representative signals of interest (SOIs).

TReX™ Capabilities And Features

engineering icon

Simulates multi-domain operation (MDO)-representatives across electromagnetic environments (EME) for training with scalable, high-fidelity threat realism.

Cybersecurity icon

Enables operators to conduct testing and evaluation of advanced electronic attack (EA) defeat techniques.

Cybersecurity icon

TReX™ web-based software is flexible and compatible with a wide range of COTS devices (e.g. USRP X310, E210), and provides custom hardware configurations to meet mission needs. It's software leverages in-house digital signal processing to outfit operators with generic or specific custom signals of interest.

Leverages extensive signal libraries and expands to support new signals and hardware capabilities.

CIP icon

Prepares signals intelligence (SIGINT) and electronic warfare (EW) operations against cyber-electromagnetic activities (CEMA) in spectrum-intensive environments with over-the-air, high-fidelity software-defined emulation of complex threat emitters.

The TReX™ system is versatile enough to be fitted with small, lab environment components up to large, MIL-SPEC outdoor units with high powered amplification.

TReX™ Provides A Better Way


A Better Way To Experiment

TReX™ hardware can be easily set up in a lab, outdoor range, or deployed environment. TReX™ systems enable users to transmit and receive high-fidelity representations of many commercial and non-commercial representative emitters, and test new SIGINT and EW techniques against their waveforms. Users may observe and validate the effects of applied SIGINT and EW systems and techniques on the system via TReX™’s command and control (C2) module.

A Better Way To Learn

Trainers can create simulated SIGINT and EW engagements within the TReX™ software and measure the effects on enemy devices by monitoring bit-error-rate (BER), signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and throughput. Simulated threat waveforms can be quickly modified and/or saved as new signals to equip operators with everchanging threat signals.


A Better Way To Plan

TReX™ can be used to practice CONOPs in a network simulated environment. Multiple TReX™ devices can be remotely controlled and communicate with a single, C2 software application. Real-time and post-session data can be used to plot threat effectiveness and improve planning for future strategies by mission command. Users can create long duration and/or repeatable scenarios for quantified testing in the lab or field. TReX™ has the capability to mimic specific SOIs including but not limited to:

  • Fast, frequency hopping tactical radios
  • Fixed-frequency tactical radios
  • Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Remote-Controlled Model Aircrafts (RCMA)
  • GNSS, DVB-S, DVB-S2, and DVB-T signals
  • TDMA/CDMA bulk transmitters
  • Non-commercial representative modems
  • Comms modulations: FSK, BPSK, BPSK-DSSS, OFDM, and QAM
  • Pulse emitters and radar signals

TReX™ provides real-time and post-mission analysis to better train and plan for future missions. Backing up the TREX™ product is a diverse team of engineering, design, and training experts with operational experience in EW/SIGINT.
