Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS AN UNCONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUE FOR CORRELATING LINES OF BEARING OBTAINED FROM INDEPENDENT MEASUREMENTS OF EMITTER CHARACTERISTICS. THE TECHNIQUE WILL EMPLOY SPECIFIC EMITTER IDENTIFICATION IN THE BROADEST SENSE USING ALL INFORMATION WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO CORRELATE LINES OF BEARING: SIGNAL NUANCES, GEOMETRY, FEATURE-EMITTER ASSOCIATIONS, EMITTER-EMITTER ASSOCIATIONS, EMITTERTARGET ASSOCIATIONS, AND COMMUNICATIONS-ELECTRONICS OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS. BY UTILIZING A VARIETY OF FEATURES AND EMITTER CHARACTERISTICS THE RESULTING PROCESS WILL BE ROBUST. CONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES RELY ONLY ON ONE OR A FEW FINGERPRINT FEATURES (ALBEIT, PRECISE) AND ARE UNABLE TO ADAPT TO THE LOSS OR MODIFICATION OF THE FEATURE OR FINGERPRINT. THE METHOD PROPOSED HERE WILL NOT SUFFER THIS WEAKNESS.
