Abstract
THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF GENERATING DOPPLER FREQUENCIES FROM A CHAFF CLOUD BY USING NON-LINEAR DIPOLES AND ILLUMINATING THE CLOUD WITH A MODULATED CW SIGNAL. FEASIBILITY WILL BE ESTABLISHED BY A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF THE POWER AND FREQUENCY REQUIREMENTS AND AN INVESTIGATION OF THE MATERIALS REQUIRED TO MAKE THE NON-LINEAR DIPOLES WITH CONSIDERATION GIVEN TO COST AND MANUFACTURING PROBLEMS. THE THRUST WILL BE TO INVESTIGATE CONCEPTS AND TECHIQUES THAT WILL BE COMPATABLE WITH EXISTING ARMY CHAFF DISPENSERS AND JAMMING PODS. THE PHASE I EFFORT IS EXPECTED TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT AND THE POTENTIAL VALUE OF FURTHER WORK.
