In allusion to the composition of radar signal simulation test system (RSSTS) for the control of multiple instruments based on PC, this paper, based on the construction of RSSTS, proposed the principle for the achievement of instrument driver library(IDL) and instrument softpanel(ISP), and presented a PC-based test system(PCBTS) that adopted a distributed approach for integrating a variety of instrument software; in addition, developed IDL, ISP, test report modules and various instrument integration software. Finally, an experiment based on aforesaid principles were selected to conduct a comprehensive evaluation for the PCBTS, and the results showed that this test system could fully control the physical test system(PTS) in a PC; could control the PTS to achieve a variety of radar signal simulations and outputs; and could support the report feature of test results.
