Abstract
"This proposal offers to develop and test a new tactical, mobile ESM system to detect, DF and selectively identify (SEI) hostile cruise missiles by exploiting their radar altimeter emissions. A low risk antenna design is being mated to new detectionalgorithms, innovative direction finding concepts and proven SEI approaches, resulting in a system ready for operational demonstration in 2003. To reduce risk and lower the government's cost, Lockheed Martin Systems Integration will provide areceiver-signal processor to host RAS' new detection, DF and SEI algorithms. To demonstrate the receiver-signal processing capability, the team may employ an existing LMSI antenna design that supports the detection and DF performance goals specified inthe SBIR solicitation. Investigations during Phase I have permitted our team to develop and test the high-performance algorithms that will be fully implemented in Phase II. A new "Bell Ringer" concept has also been conceived and modeled; this willdramatically reduce the processing load in the main receiver-processor, thereby reducing the response time of our overall ALPIP system. A fast response time, plus very high availability rates and positional accuracies, will make the ALPIP an extremelycombat-capable cruise missile detection and tracking system. And the completely passive ALPIP design will complement existing and new active radar surveillance systems, while remaining fully effective against ev
