This paper presents a simulator developed for effective use of chaff which is widely employing for aircraft protection. We calculate the scattered electric field based on the aircraft and the chaff RCS. Input parameters calculated using Matlab are forwarded to the input module of the presented simulator which provides a three dimensional display fur the three different scenarios.
