Abstract
THERE CURRENTLY EXISTS ONLY LIMITED CAPABILITIES TO MEASURE THE DEGREEOF PERFORMANCE DEGRADATION EMPOSED ON A BOARD RANGE OF THREAT RADAR SYSTEMS BY FRIENDLY ELECTRONIC WARFARE COUNTERMEASURE SYSTEMS IN A DYNAMIC, REALISTIC, AND RECONFIGUREABLE MANNER. THE AMHERST SYSTEMS RECONFIGURABLE RADAR SIMULATOR WILL PROVIDE THE IDEAL TRADEOFF BETWEEN THE DYNAMIC, REALISTIC, AND RECONFIGUREABLESIMULATION REQUIREMENTS BY GENERATING DYNAMIC, REAL-WORLD SCENARIOS UTILIZING THREAT RADAR SPECIFICATIONS AND RELAISTIC RETURNS. THIS SIMULATOR WILL EMULATE THREAT SYSTEM TRANSMIT, RECEIVE, AND SIGNAL PROCESSING CAPABILITIES, AND WILL BE QUICKLY KEYBOARD RE-CONFIGURED ASNEW THREAT SPECIFICATION BECOME AVAILABLE. DUE TO ITS' FLEXIBILITY THE RECONFIGURABLE RADAR SIMULATOR WILL GIVE DEFENSE ORGANIZAITONS THE OPPORTURNITY TO EASILTY TEST FRIENDLY INDIGENEOUS, AND EXPERIMENTAL ECM EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES AGAINST COHERENT THREAT RADAR SYSTEMS WITH KNOW, OR ESTIMATED PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS. THE RESULTS OF PHASE I WILL BE A RADAR SIMULATOR DESIGN, A SOFTWARE DESCRIPTION FOR COMMAND AND CONTROL, AND A RADAR SIMULATOR DEVLEOPMENT PROPOSAL. POTENTIAL PAYOFFS ARE SUBSTANTIAL IN TERMS OF IMPROVING ECM DEVELOPMENT CAPABILITIES AND REDUCING DEVELOPMENT SCHEDULES AND COSTS. ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE RADAR SIMULATOR PERFORMANCE GOALS DESCIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL WILL REPRESENT A MAJOR TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCE IN SUPPORT TOOLS FOR ECM SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT.
