Abstract
There is a need in the intelligence and test and evaluation communities for a Digital RF Memory (DRFM) jammer emulator capable of rapidly prototyping and analyzing signal waveforms for emerging and continually adapting threat systems. The emulator must be architected and constructed so that 1) classified information remains secure and uncompromised, and 2) operating parameters can be easily programmed to reflect the performance of varying systems. In order to satisfy these objectives, in Phase I of this contract Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will leverage our experience with the development of the Agile Digital Effects Processor (ADEP™) technology to create the Intelligent Jammer Emulation System (IJES) design concept. SPEC''s ADEP™ combines RF signal characterization, DRFM and arbitrary waveform generation capabilities. ADEP™ signal modulation is entirely digital. ADEP™''s architecture is logic / software-driven as opposed to hardware-constrained, is readily threat- and platform-adaptable, and is ideally suited to development of a flexibly programmable DRFM jammer simulator / stimulator. Current ADEP™ systems and system models enable tailoring of instantaneous bandwidth, bit depth, dynamic range, range delay and other parameters. The capabilities will be leveraged and extended to create the IJES.
