  7. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    Current monostatic radar systems suffer fine tracking and discrimination performance degradation when encountering mainlobe jammers deployed within a reentry complex. As a result our forces may be vulnerable to attack. During Phase I, we have developed distributed aperture techniques for mitigating mainlobe jammers which are ready for evaluation in an operational system context. To accomplish this ...
