AbstractThis effort to improve the capabilities of the ESM system will increase the reliability and reduce lifecycle support costs of the Radar Wideband (RWB) subsystem on submarines. Analog to digital converter (A/D) based digital receivers will be applied to yield improvements in Radar signal acquisition and processing. In-phase and Quadrature (I/Q) data streams will be created from which intra pulse modulations may be derived. Improvements for intercept and characterization will include: shorter and longer pulse width processing, signals with dynamic pulse repetition intervals, signals with frequency agility, and solid state transmitters. This will allow the Electronic Warfare systems the capability to meet the challenges brought about by the emergence of complex Continuous Wave (CW) solid state radars that threaten the stealth and secure operations of the submarine force. This will improve the submarine mission readiness and effectiveness.
