Analytic and Simulation Based Models for the Investigation of Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) Waveform Detectability
Project Award Date: 0000-00-00
The goal of this research consists of investingating two distinct interrelated problems. First, we are performing the research necessary to establish and describe a set of metrics and theorems for Low Probability of Intercept waveforms.
This will lead to the develoment of a design and analysis methodology and capapbility for Low Probability of Intercept signals and systems. This methodology and capability will result in an algorithmic approach to LPI design and will be composed of two primary elements: and analytical-based, computer-aided system to evaluate the detectability of LPI waveforms; and computer simulation models which will allow the LPI communications link to be simulated and evaluated against the effects of jamming and intercepts receivers. Second, we are conducting basic research into the design of the next generation LPI waveforms and possible strategies for detecting them. The two research objective are complementary efforts.
