Abstract
FLEET TRAINING EXERCISES UTILIZING THE AIRBORNE, MISSILE THREAT SIMULATOR POD, AST-6, CAN BE MATERIALLY IMPROVED BY THE ADDITION OF AN ECM RESPONSE MONITOR IN THE POD. THIS MONITOR WILL RECORD THE ECM RESPONE OF THE TARGET AND THE TACTICS OF ECM UTILIZATION FOR SUBSEQUENT DOWNLOAD AND DEBRIEFING. THIS APPLICATION REQUIRES A DIFFERENT APPROACH THAN CONVENTIONAL ECM SCORING SYSTEMS IN SEVERAL RESPECTS. FIRST, IT MUST BE INCORPORATED IN AN AIRBORNE POD AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UTILIZE THE LABORATORY TYPE EQUIPMENT THAT IS PRINCIPAL TO MOST SYSTEMS. SECOND, IT MUST OPERATE IN VERY CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE THREAT TRANSMITTER AND SHARE A COMMON RECEIVE/ TRANSMIT RF PATH. THIRD, BECAUSE OF THE MOBILITY OF THE AIRBORNE SYSTEM IT MUST PERFORM IT'S ANALYSIS AND IDENTIFICATION TASK IN A SMALL FRACTION OF THE TIME THAT IS ACCEPTABLE IN A GROUND BASED SYSTEM. THE EQUIPMENT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PROPOSED ADDRESSES THESE NEW REQUIREMENTS AND DEVELOPS A NEW APPROACH TO RADAR AND ECM SIGNAL ANALYSIS.
