Abstract
THERE IS A GROWING NEED TO ACTIVELY MONITOR RADIO COMMUNICATION CHANNELS AND RECEIVER CIRCUITS FOR THE PRESENCE OF INTENTIONAL OR UNINTENTIONAL INTERFERENCE THAT MAY DEGRADE LINK QUALITY. THE MULTIPLICITY OF SIGNAL FORMATS AND INTERFERENCE TYPES MAKES THE TASK OF DEVELOPING ROBUST MONITORING TECHNIQUES A DIFFICULT ONE. IT MUST ALSO BE RECOGNIZED THAT SUCH MONITORING TECHNIQUES SHOULD IDEALLY BE IMPLEMENTED IN A FASHION WHICH MAXIMIZES COMPACTNESS, COST EFFECTIVENESS AND OPERATOR EFFICIENCY, PRECLUDES THE NEED FOR ALTERATION OF EXISTING EQUIPMENT BY SERVING AS MODULAR ADDITIONS ONLY, FACILITATES UTILIZATION BY MOBILE PLATFORMS, AND, IF POSSIBLE, SUPPORTS NOT ONLY INTERFERENCE DETECTION BUT CHARACTERIZATION AS WELL. TOWARD THIS END,THE GOALS OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH ARE TO DEVELOP NOVEL TECHNIQUES AND CONCEPTUAL EQUIPMENT DESIGNS FOR INTERFERENCE DETECTION/CHARACTERIZATION OVER A BROAD RANGE OF SIGN AND INTERFERENCE TYPES OF INTEREST; THE DESIGNS SHOULD REFLECT BOTH NOVEL APPLICATIONS OF ADVANCING TECHNOLOGIES AND AN APPROPRIATE MIX OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE PROCESSING. AN INITIAL PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT -VIA ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION -IS TO BE CONDUCTED TO THEORETICALLY DEMONSTRATE THE VIABILITY OF THE PROPOSED APPROACHES IN TERMS OF ACCURACY AND SPEED OF THE DETECTION/CHARACTERIZATION PROCESS.
