Electronic Support Measures (ESM) plays an important role in modern Electronic Warfare (EW) systems. The main purpose of an ESM system is to intercept as many emissions as it can, and then to deinterleave mixed streams of pulses that are interleaved in natural time of arrival order, and thus to identify surrounding emissions. In real life, such systems may encounter with a continuous stream of pulses accompanied by many imperfections, and it should work on real-time basis. In order to handle such circumstances and to develop better deinterleaving algorithms, a simulation tool is needed. In this study, design of a scenario-based mixed pulse generator (simulator) is presented.
