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. This practical reference shows you how to apply window techniques for spectrum estimation and determine how these techniques affect the target acquisition process. Moreover, you discover how to efficiently manage target acquisition with such artificial intelligence techniques as fuzzy logic and evidential reasoning. In addition to explaining methods and applications, this book is your complete source for information on designing and evaluating EW target acquisitions systems.
