Directing Monopulse Jamming Toward Antenna of Semiactive or Antiradiation Missile
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
An EO/IR sensor with the angular accuracy and dynamic response capabilities to point a RF jammer does not exist. To perform a pointing function, the EO/IR sensor system must be capable of tracking relatively small objects at the stand-off distances that Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) and Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) typically operate. DRA proposes to solve this challenging technology limitation by developing an integrated solution consisting of two or more sensors. The integrated sensor design will have the capability to obtain both high resolution spatial and spectral information, but will still have a flexible architecture that will enable the development of advanced sensing technologies that will meet the requirements for pointing a RF jammer. The integrated design solution that DRA proposes will provide a path to develop prototype hardware for demonstration that will meet those requirements. During Phase II, DRA will develop a prototype system and demonstrate key performance characteristics. The Phase II effort will provide a building-block capability for producing an integrated threat protection system that has the required functionality
