Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop and implement a two-fold spectrum monitor and broadcast system EM-SMART (Electromagnetic Spectrum Monitor, Identification and Broadcast). EM-SMART provides the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) capability to recognize and classify blue force and red force waveforms, and the emulation capability to broadcast anticipated opposing force waveforms. The target application is a congested and contested RF environment with multiple adaptive waveforms. Advanced RF fingerprinting and statistical analysis tools will be applied to detect, identify and classify waveforms that are received either alone or as superimposed at different receivers. The proposed approach will focus on a cognitive network environment where both blue force and red force waveforms react to each other and adapt to network dynamics. EM-SMART system will be implemented in a software-defined radio (SDR) testbed environment, where blue force and red force waveforms along with monitor and broadcast capabilities will be ported to SDRs communicating with each other over emulated channels. Capabilities developed in this effort will provide agile and adaptive functionalities for cognitive networking and electronic warfare, and will be flexible to support fast prototyping towards integration with military radios.
