ABSTRACT: The proliferation of digital hardware and high performance amplifiers has resulted in a high degree of signal similarity among radar systems. As a consequence, modern electronic warfare systems are facing a signal characterization and specific emitter identification problem using traditional methods. Under Phase I, ISL identified a novel multidimensional feature that is generally independent of the emitter waveform parameters. This new feature has allowed us to develop a novel solution to the problem of jamming advanced radar emitters. The overall objective of the Phase II program is the insertion of new electronic warfare (EW) techniques based on the new multidimensional feature into existing and planned EW systems including the ALQ-161. BENEFIT: The proposed SBIR program will provide the Air Force with the capability to identify and engage emerging advanced digital radar systems in complex RF environments.
