Instrumentation for Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) Research
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
To advance DRFM technology, instrumentation is required to facilitate an understanding of DRFM performance requirements, capabilities, and implementation trade-offs. It is highly desirable that the requirements, capabilities, and trade-offs be evaluated in the context of a total EW system, and with test stimulus that is representative of the actual stimulus seen in combat missions. Such a capability does not yet exist. The proposed system will allow DRFMs to be evaluated in a realistically dense simulated Electronic Warfare (EW) environment. Also included is the support electronics to allow the DRFM to operate in a 2.0 to 18.0 GHz frequency range and to detect and classify the simulated threat radars. The ECM signals generated by the DRFM are analyzed and evaluated for their effectiveness in jamming the simulated radars.
