The increasing number, diversity and sophistication of anti-ship cruise missiles around the world in the past thirty years have led to sophisticated countermeasures. The Naval Research Laboratory has developed hardware in the loop (HIL) missile simulator technology to assess the effectiveness of electronic attack (EA) countermeasures. These simulators appear in two basic configurations: the closed loop in an anechoic chamber and the open loop captive carry on board a P-3 aircraft. The objective of this thesis was to develop a comprehensive Simulink model representing the two HIL missile simulator configurations. These models were then used to study the influence of each parameter on EA effectiveness, as measured by missile miss distance. The development of this model now makes it possible to compare the seeker responses of the two configurations as well as to have an inexpensive way to test new approaches to combine the closed loop missile dynamics with the open loop environment information to obtain more accurate EA effectiveness measurements.
