Abstract
The feasibility of developing a photonics-based, real-time, high-power-radio-frequency (HPRF)/high-power-microwave (HPM) detection-and-analysis system is to be investigated. Design and development of foundational elements will take place to demonstrate how self-contained, shielded, photonic and source-power subsystems, interconnected to a network of non-polarimetric sensors via optical fiber, will be able to capture data related to the magnitude of the attack and its source location and then distribute HPRF/HPM warnings. The system will geo-locate the attack (for both azimuth and elevation/declination angles and range) without utilizing a multiplicity of potentially large and unwieldy antennas, and it will store information on the electromagnetic characteristics of the attack for additional analysis.
