Abstract
The objective of this effort is to develop innovative waveforms and related signal processing algorithms that will improve the capability of missile defense radars in target detection, discrimination, and tracking, as well as reducing vulnerability to jamming and other countermeasures. We will demonstrate significant performance improvements by modeling and simulation. In addition, during the Phase II effort we are validating and testing the waveforms and signal processing algorithms developed in Phase I against real targets using measured radar data when available, while demonstrating improved performance in detection, discrimination, and tracking. In addition, we are developing techniques that decrease the vulnerability of missile defense radars to jamming and other countermeasures.
