Abstract:

ADVANCED ESM AND ANTIRADIATION MISSILES HAVE MADE OPERATION OF A RADAR ON THE MODERN BATTLEFIELD VERY RISKY. A POPULAR APPROACH TO MAKING RADARS SURVIVABLE IS TO USE PASSIVE RECEIVERS FOR PROCESSING TARGET RETURNS USING NON-COLOCATED TRANSMITTERS; THE PASSIVE RECEIVERS ARE INVULNERABLE TO INTERCEPT WHILE PERFORMING THEIR RADAR PROCESSING. UNFORTUNATELY THIS PASSIVE CONVERTNESS OF SUCH BISTATIC RECEIVERS CAN BE LOST WHEN TARGET INFORMATION IS TRANSMITTED BACK. THE USE OF ADVANCED SPREAD-SPECTRUM TECHNIQUES, COMBINED WITH NETWORKING FOR MINIMUM LINK RANGES, COULD PROVIDE LOW-PROBABILITY-OFINTERCEPT (LPI) AGAINST SOPHISTICATED THREATS. THE TECHNOLOGIES FOR COMMUNICATIONS AND RADAR ARE SIMILAR ENOUGH THAT SHARED HARDWARE IS POSSIBLE.
