Abstract
THE SIGINT SENSOR FOR SHIPLAUNCHED RPV'S WILL 1) PROVIDE LOWCOST COMMUNICATION INTERCEPT CAPABILITY, TO DETECT, ANALYZE, AND GEOLOCATE ENEMY COMMUNICATIONS; 2) JAM SELECTED ENEMY COMMUNICATIONS; AND 3) EMULATE U.S. NAVAL COMMUNICATIONS TO DECOY ENEMY FORCES. THIS EQUIPMENT, BASED ON SEVERAL EXISTING DSI SUBASSEMBLY DESIGNS, COVER VHF/UHF, CAN INTERCEPT NEW SIGNALS IN LESS THAN 0.5 SECONDS, ANALYZE AND INDENTIFY EMITTERS IN 30 MSEC, SET ON WITHIN 100 HZ, SELECT OPTIMUM MODULATION AND JAM WITH 100 WATTS IN ANOTHER 30 MSEC. IT CAN EMULATE FSK, PSK, AM/FM VOICE, LINK 4 AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS' EMITTERS. ALL FUNCTIONS ARE PROGRAMMABLE REMOTELY THROUGH A COMMAND (TIME-SHARED-INTERCEPT) RECEIVER. THE TIME HISTORY AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SIGNAL ENVIRONMENT ARE RECOVERABLE BY THE TIME-SHARED (DATA-LINK) USE OF THE JAMMER TRANSMITTER. SPEED OF INTERCEPT, ACHIEVED THROUGH COMBINING WIDE AND NARROW BAND IF AMPLIFIERS IN THE SEARCH LOGIC; 100 HZ JAMMER SET ON ACCURACY AND THE LOW COST DESIGN APPROACH MAKE THE PROPOSED SIGINT SYSTEM UNIQUE. ANALYSIS, DESIGN, COSTING AND RECEIVER BREAD-BROADING WILL BE DONE IN PHASE I. COMPLETE SIGINT SENSOR FOR SHIPLAUNCHED RPV'S WILL BE DEVELOPED AND TESTED IN PHASE 2.
