ATDI is a global leader in battlespace spectrum management solutions for military, government departments and security agencies. HTZ Warfare is a radio network planning and spectrum engineering tool for the deployment, optimisation and real-time analysis of tactical military communications.
HTZ Warfare exploits spectrum dependent systems and features dedicated military functions for the management of military communications links, electronic warfare sensors, radio jammers and radars. It enables network operators to plan missions using receivers, direction-finding and communications jamming equipment. Using HTZ Warfare, sensors can be deployed and optimised to maximise the probability of mission success, while minimising the number of sensors to be deployed. HTZ Warfare is capable of modelling airborne, terrestrial and maritime platforms.
HTZ Warfare can model airborne, terrestrial and maritime platforms, as well as mission planning for live operations. ATDI’s battle-proven solutions are used for operational analysis to aid the development of new systems and to assess emerging technologies.
HTZ Warfare is a complete software solution for the management of electronic warfare communications.
Network simulation – for spectrum engineering tactical mission planning and analysis;
Mission planning – to provide support to tactical units in the field and provide command centre secure communication lines;
Radar detection capability analysis – predicting the areas and elevations for radar coverage;
Jamming efficiency analysis – identifying areas where the jammer can be effective in interrupting enemy communications;
Automation capabilities – to customise workflows to support different end-user requirements or system capabilities. This simplifies interfaces for software users who may not have a radio propagation background or users who are in the field;
UAV/UAS mission planning – including integration between ground-to-air and air-to-air services and the ability to model coexistence with other communication service users;
Network modelling – to model dynamic military scenarios and featuring on-the-move capability;
Flightpath RF simulation analysis – importing flight-path information and conducting propagation modelling and communication validation.
Dedicated military functions - including direction finding, jamming and radar features.
Powerful propagation engine - to support network modelling and to manage RF simulations for flight-path analysis for UAV/UAS.
HTZ Warfare is an off-the-shelf solution that can be deployed in standalone mode or embedded into existing or new systems. It's compatible with RESTful API, which allows for interactions with front-end web services. The API acts as a mediator between the users or clients and HTZ Warfare. As a result of the client-server architecture, requests are managed through HTTP or other secure modes. Other architectures like WIN Socket can be accommodated. All options offer high levels of interoperability and allow for plug-in functions to meet end-user requirements.
The API allows users to launch a black box of action codes to automate workflows within the software. The maximum number of simultaneous licenses of HTZ Warfare running is equal to the number of licenses purchased. This means a single virtual machine can run multiple licenses of the software, with commands launched in order of priority. This responsive solution allows users to interact with the radio planning functions in real-time and responsively. The Rest API supports synchronization with a unique SQL database, as well as supporting parallel computing, which relies on the simultaneous use of computer resources to massively improve the calculation speeds.
HTZ Warfare is a dedicated RF engineering tool for the planning, modelling and management of tactical networks using the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). This feature-specific software supports military units around the globe. Key benefits include:
HTZ Warfare is an advanced battlespace RF planning and modelling software for spectrum engineering for tactical mission planning and analysis.

HTZ warfare supports communications between sea to sea, sea to air and land to sea in a maritime environments.
The complex scenarios for coverage, interference and intermodulation, which can be impacted within a battleships/ships environment, can be examined and simulated to ensure the radio systems in the same vessel are not negatively impacted in terms of performance or efficiency.

LTE and 5G are important to military organisations because they offer higher performance and support additional capabilities for data-driven applications. These capabilities support a new networked way of warfighting that brings together sensors and machines to revolutionise the battlespace.
HTZ Warfare supports LTE/5G private network planning and modelling and is used by military network operators across all domains.
In the UK alone, there are over 80 military and civilian aeronautical radars. To support the growing demand to monitor the airways, radar manufacturers and system integrators need to understand how radar performance can be impacted by interference.
HTZ Warfare features dedicated features for radar modelling, including:

Our software supports the complete network lifecycle including network design, planning and optimization. It allows engineers to model coverage from outdoor into indoor spaces and indoor to indoor, providing seamless coverage for end users.
As part of the upgrade from ICST to HTZ, we now use soft key activation codes. These are installed in the software directory for standalone licenses or on the server. The license options for these are listed below:
Standalone licence/s: This licence is attached to one standalone PC or laptop. Once the licence has been activated, it remains attached to the computer where the activation is initiated. No other application or software tool is required for set-up. A standalone licence allows each user to operate up to three instances of the software (CALs) at any one time.
Server licence: A Licence Server Management Tool needs installing and the server licence must be activated on that Server. The Client computer will then connect to the server to activate their local license. Any computer connected to the LAN can use HTZ, with the number of concurrent users or sessions equal to the number of licences available. A server licence allows each user to activate one instance of the software (CAL) per licence at any one time.
Our software supports a plethora of propagation models. For the latest released version, contact our support helpdesk.

No other software application is required for set up. A standalone license allows each user to operate three instances of the software (CALs) at any one time.
Server license: This option requires a License Server Management Tool to be installed and the license must be activated on that Server. The Client computer then connects to the server to activate their license. Any computer connected to the LAN can use the software, with the number of concurrent users or sessions equal to the number of licenses available.
