Abstract
AN RF SEEKER SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY IS PROPOSED TO BE DEVELOPED HERE TO PASSIVELY IDENTIFY AND CLASSIFY SHIP TARGETS FOR CRUISE MISSILES. THIS PROPOSED TECHNOLOGY IS AN ADAPTATION OF REAL TIME RF EMITTER IDENTIFICATION SYSTEMS PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED AND IMPLEMENTED BY SCOPE, INC. THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPT RELIES ON THE PASSIVE EXPLOITATION OF UNINTENTIONAL CHARACTERISTIC MODULATIONS IMPOSED ON RF SIGNALS EMITTED FROM TARGET-MOUNTED TRANSMITTERS. THIS PROPOSED INVESTIGATION WILL RESULT IN A PRELIMINARY SYSTEM DESIGN WHICH INCLUDES DESCRIPTIONS OF CRITICAL SIGNAL PROCESSING ALGORITHMS. CRITICAL TECHNOLOGY AND DATA ISSUES WILL ALSO BE IDENTIFIED AND EVALUATED. A RECOMMENDATION WILL BE MADE FOR FURTHER SYSTEM RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, IF THE PHASE I STUDY INDICATES THAT THE PROPOSED CONCEPT IS FEASIBLE.
