Abstract:

Under the Ships Signal Exploitation Equipment (SSEE) program, and similar programs for its subsurface and airborne platforms, the US Navy is fielding a family of communications electronic support (ES) sensors based on new architectural principals. These sensors are built from fully commercial hardware and digital interconnection fabrics. Key sensor capabilities are software-based, where this software is developed using Software Product Line Practices , . These practices have allowed for frequent hardware technology insertions while maintaining full reuse of a single software baseline across platforms. Electronic Attack (EA) systems being fielded today have not yet adopted these architectural principals. Instead, they are characterized by long-lead, purpose-built hardware and software. The objectives of this Command and Control Communications Systems Denial proposal are formulate an EA appliqu¿ design that fits within these emerging ES systems, and to formulate the weapon control mechanisms needed to allow complex target signal activity to be observed and attacked with precision. This last step is key to giving the IO weapon operator the ability to achieve specific effects ranging from denial of an entire class of activity to deception of a specific entity during a specific phase of military activity.
