Abstract
The objective of the proposed program is to develop innovative algorithms and techniques to automatically detect, classify, and uniquely identify emitters exhibiting multi-dimensional agilities, extremely wide band RF distribution, high time-bandwidth coherent characteristics, and solid state power amplifier technologies. The proliferation of agile emitter types has surpassed the ability of current EW systems to de-interleave and identify emitters in a dense and complex signal environment. Improved automated signal analysis and emitter classification is required to maintain an accurate real-time view of the environment, thus allowing the Electronic Warfare Support operator to perform his primary missions of maintaining ship safety and providing complete situational awareness to decision makers. Our goal is to develop an open architecture solution that can support multiple sensors and is easily extensible to address the evolution of future radars.
