Abstract
Modern electronic warfare systems operate over very wide bandwidths of up to 40GHz. The goal of next generation wide band EW systems is to ensure 100% probability of intercept (POI) with high dynamic range in order to detect and classify signals of interest (SOI) in dense target environments while reducing size, weight, power (SWaP) and cost. To achieve this goal, an innovative wide band RF spectrum management architecture is needed to minimize interference. The proposed Programmable Automated Spectrum Management System (PASMS) provides Electronic Warfare (EW), Test & Evaluation and commercial customers with capabilities to quickly and cost effectively eliminate (digitally filter) undesired signals of interference from the operational environment. PASMS will allow systems like the AN/BLQ-10, AN/SLQ-32 and other EA/EP systems to ensure 100% POI, detection and classification in dense target environments while reducing SWaP and cost. This same technology can be directly applied to commercial test applications as well as eliminate co-channel interference for cell sites and other communications installations. Many elements of PASMS are leverage from SPECs existing commercial ADEP digital processing products to reduce risk and ensure success of the program.
