Abstract
This SBIR develops technologies to automate the creation of Electronic Warfare (EW) emitter libraries to correctly identify threat (and other) signals of interest. In this effort RAS will show how to automate the use of the national databases to extract data and manipulate it into a form suitable for automating the generation of Mission Data or Emitter ID tables needed in operational EW systems to quickly identify the threat. Important to this are algorithms to determine ambiguities and then eliminate them based on additional criteria from ELINT data bases and other available data bases such as Orders of battle, Operational ELINT and SEI databases. The approach leverages RAS extensive expertise gained from EWIR / KILTING and CED database development, analysis and applications and our development of several generations of emitter parameter measurement algorithms to extract conventional pulse parameters (RF, PW, PRI), RF and PRF agility parameters, intentional modulations on pulse and scan patterns. Approaches are assessed and selected for PHASE II software development and demonstration within the SEWIP Block II architecture. During and after Phase II, RAS will work with SEWIP Block II prime Lockheed Martin and the government to define, install and demonstrate the technology on a suitable test-bed.
