Abstract:

HYPRES PRODUCED A SUPERCONDUCTING 11.5 GHZ 16-STAGE CORRELATOR OPERATING AT 4K AND WILL PRODUCE A 20 GHZ 1024-STAGE CORRELATOR WHICH DISSIPATES 10MW. SUPERCONDUCTING DIGITAL LOGIC CAN BE USED TO CREATE 5UW/GATE 20 GHZ PROCESSING SYSTEMS. CORRELATORS CAN DETECT AND MEASURE TIME-OF-ARRIVAL OF PSEUDO-RANDOM (PRN) CODED SIGNALS MANY DB DOWN IN NOISE. PRN SIGNALS ARE: TRANSMITTED WITH LOW ENERGY SPREAD ACROSS THE SPECTRUM FOR A LOW PROBABILITY OF INTERCEPT, APPEAR AS NOISE TO CONVENTIONAL RECEIVERS, AND HAVE A LOW PROBABILITY OF EXPLOITATION WITHOUT KNOWING THE PRN CODE. STEALTH LPI RADAR SYSTEMS USING A 1024-STAGE CORRELATOR CAN TRANSMIT -30DB LESS POWER. THE SAME CORRELATOR FOR LPI/LPE COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS CAN DETECT A -30DB DEGRADED SIGNAL OR MULTIPLEX 32 CHANNELS, AND CANNOT BE EXPLOITED WITHOUT KNOWING THE PRN CODE. USED FOR AUTOMATIC DIRECTION FINDING AND NON-COOPERATIVE TARGET RECOGNITION, CORRELATORS CAN ALSO DETECT PREVIOUSLY ACQUIRED SIGNALS.
