Abstract
THE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION OF RADIO FREQUENCIES AT EXTENDED RANGES IS AN IMPORTANT ADJUNCT TO AN ELECTRONIC SUPPORT MEASURES ALERTMENT ROLE. WITH TODAY'S SOPHISTICATED SIGNAL FORMATS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF SIGNALS CHANGE ON A PULSE-BY-PULSE BSIS. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A TECHNIQUE WHEREBY THE FREQUENCY CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH PULSE AT EXTENDED RANGES (LOW POWER LEVELS) CAN BE MEASURED VERY ACCURATELY TO PROVIDE PLATFORM TO EMITTER CORRELATION. THE METHOD OF INVESTIGATION IS TO MODIFY AN EXISTING DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING MODEL TO SIMULATE THE FINE FREQUENCY MEASUREMENT SYSTEM (FFMS) ARCHIETECTURE. THIS MODEL WILL BE USED TO INVESTIGATE THE ALGORITHMS REQUIRED TO PERFORM THE ACCURATE FREQUENCY MEASUREMENT. FROM THE SIMULATION RESULTS IN BASELINE DESIGN OF THE FFMS WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE PROPOSAL DISCUSSES IN DETAIL THE FFMS CONCEPT, THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT AND THE METHOD OF INVESTIGATION.
