This cutting-edge resource arms you with the full array of traditional methods and modern high-resolution techniques for acquiring communications targets. The book enables you to develop optimum methods for acquiring communications targets for exploitation or countermeasures. Additionally, you learn how to establish the optimum techniques for detection of deterministic signals with random parameters as well as stochastic signals. Whether you design or operate EW systems, you can turn to this guide to measure how effectively your EW systems cope in crowded RF environments. Radio communications plays an increasingly critical and growing role in today's electronic battlefield. Because more and more radio signals are deployed in electronic warfare (EW) situations, determining which ones are friendly and which are enemy has become more difficult and crucial. This book arms defense systems designers and operators with the full array of traditional search mechanisms and advanced high-resolution techniques for targeting radio signals deployed in electronic warfare. An invaluable technical reference, the book helps professionals fully understand the tradeoffs involved in designing EW target acquisition systems with less time and effort. Moreover, practitioners learn how to establish optimum methods for acquiring communication targets for exploitation or countermeasures. The book also serves as an excellent text for graduate courses in electronic warfare.
