Abstract

Colorado Engineering, Inc. (CEI) with its teammate AntennaMetrics, Inc. will use their collective experience and expertise to establish the feasibility of exploiting phase noise in a tactical environment for passive target and platform identification and jammer discrimination. CEI will build on many years of radar, EW and electronics experience oriented toward Digital Signal Processing (DSP), Electromagnetics (EM) and RF system design. AntennaMetrics will support CEI by providing deep expertise in EW systems engineering and SEWIP Block 2 design, demo planning, and SEWIP integration of the phase noise discrimination hardware.
