Multi-Algorithm Unique Emitter Identification
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
To combat the increasing sophistication in emitter design, we propose to develop a general, open architecture, multi-algorithm, wide-band emitter identification system. Given the diversity and breadth of solid state design techniques used in present day and future advanced radar systems, no one algorithm is expected to perform uniformly best with respect to emerging emitters of interest. Departing from the current single algorithm approach, the multi-algorithm approach uses a set of many algorithms each designed for a special subset of target emitters, or even a single target emitter. These multiple algorithms are collectively run in parallel to yield a best fitting identification solution. Our design is both extensible and forward compatible because it allows for near-arbitrary algorithms to be implemented within the architecture by establishing and following regimented interface control guidelines. A main goal of the entire design is to provide the ability to implement an arbitrary algorithm with minimal effort. This facilitates the streamlined development and implementation of yet-to-be developed techniques to be used against yet-to-be discovered emitters.
