Research Institution
We proposed to analyze and demonstrate phase noise detection of emitters across a wide bandwidth>20 GHz with a novel RF sensor, and to identify and develop a set of approaches to make passive measurements of the signatures and phase noise of non-cooperative antenna platform systems, utilizing the emissions from the antenna and/or the reflections off the antenna from jammers and other transmitters. We will determine technical feasibility through modeling and simulation. We aim to demonstrate these techniques, and promote transition of these techniques to SEWIP Block2/3.
