AbstractReducing cosite interference on an aircraft requires a top-down system engineering approach. This begins with collecting performance data on all equipment involved, computer modeling the interference for each equipment pairing to identify specific interference sources and levels, defining the amount of mitigation necessary for each pairing, and designing a subsystem that provides the needed mitigation. Softronics Ltd. will apply its years of cosite engineering experience and its proprietary cosite interference computer model to quickly determine the mitigation needs of the EA-18G. Solutions are expected to varying with the equipment pairing, and to involve a combination of operational rules and technology, from frequency management to fixed and agile filters and notches, to adaptive cancellation systems. A key feature of our approach is that it may be incrementally implemented on any aircraft or vehicle.
