Abstract
A SPREAD-SPECTRUM AUTOMATIC DIRECTION FINDING SYSTEM WILL BE CAPABLE OF SELECTIVELY PROVIDING DIRECTIONAL INFORMATION IN A TACTICAL ENVIROMENT. ONLY AUTHORIZED RECEIVERS (THOSE WITH THE CORRECT PN CODE) WILL BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THE TRANSMITTED INFORMATION. CONVENTIONAL ADF SYSTEMS ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH SPREAD SPECTRUM SINCE CORRELATION DETECTION IS REQUIRED BEFORE THE MESSAGE CAN BE DISTINGUISHED AND EXTRACTED FROM NOISE AND OTHER SIGNALS. THE PROJECT WILL INVESTIGATE SEVERAL ALTERNATIVE ADF STRUCTURES (SUBJECT TO A JAMMING ENVIRONMENT) SO THAT THE FEASIBILITY OF SPREAD SPECTRUM ADF SYSTEMS MAY BE ASSESSED.
