Abstract
Technological advances in both military and commercial communications have resulted in increasingly complex signal waveforms that cannot be processed using existing algorithms. As a result, cryptologic technicians and analysts often must manually derive a signal's features and match those features to an emitter class. Due to the large volumes of collected data that must be sorted through, it is challenging to find those signals that may be of tactical importance in a timely fashion. With the reduction in operational billets, the development of an automated, advanced feature measurement capability has become a necessity. KAB proposes the development of the Automated RF Measurement Module (ARMM), which supports advanced emitter identification capabilities by providing automated feature measurements for both traditional and modern communication technologies. ARMM will employ digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms to support advanced feature measurement, and an open architecture will facilitate the addition or modification of algorithms as new technologies emerge. ARMM will be a service-oriented capability, supported by an open application programming interface (API) to allow any number of client applications to utilize the service. ARMM will be highly portable, enabling it to run on a number of target platforms on both local and wide area networks.
