Abstract:

THE QUEST FOR COVERT PENETRATION HAS RESULTED IN VARIOUS TECHNICAL BREAKTHROUGHS. MUCH OF THE RESEARCH DONE HAS BEEN IN THE AREA OF ADVANCED ROUTE PLANNING TO MINIMIZE THE EXPOSURE TO HOSTILE RADAR (TERRAIN, THREAT AND OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE; TERRAIN FOLLOWING, ETC.) AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY TO AVOID DETECTION (STEALTH, RADAR ABSORPTION). IN THE AREA OF LOW PROBABILITY OF INTERCEPT (LPI) COMMUNICATIONS THE BULK OF THE WORK HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED AT WRDC/AAAITO ASSIGN SYSTEM QUALITY FACTORS TO PROVIDE A QUANTITATIVE TECHNIQUE TO ALLOW THE SYSTEM ENGINEERS TO EVALUATE LPI EFFECTIVENESS. THE LPI CDAT BEING PROPOSED BY THIS SBIR WILL BE A PC BASED ANALYSIS TOOL WITH THE CAPABILITY TO DEVELOP A ROUTE PLAN FOR A SINGLE AIRCRAFT, MULTIPLE INDEPENDENT AIRCRAFT OR SEVERAL AIRCRAFT FLYING IN FORMATION.THE USER WILL BE ABLE TO RANDOMLY LOCATE USER DEFINED AIR DEFENSE UNITS (RADAR, JAMMERS, PASSIVE COMMUNICATION DETECTORS, ETC.)
