– Developing and building hardware jammers. Analyzing countermeasure effects on radar systems


• Installed simulative jammer waveforms in the NMD Target Complex Generator as a proof-of-principle at the ARC in Huntsville, AL.
• Provided engineering analysis to MDA/System Engineering Black Team on THAAD, Aegis, SBX, and AN/TPY-2 (FBX-T) on system topics and on notional events involving ECM techniques and ECCM solutions.
• Provided simulated targets using RTJS during THAAD UOES
• Supported MDA with the ACD and threat risk assessments using communications EW and CNO expertise

EA Modeling Objective
Properly modeled Electronic Attack provides the developer and evaluator with the opportunity to assess system performance in a digital Electronic Attack Environment.

• EA Modeling
• Denial (Noise): Statistically equivalent noise
• Deception: False targets
• Combinations: Denial/Deception
• Additional Capability
• Simulate target and EA return signal at the last RF IF stage
• Analyze radar receiver models requiring high fidelity
• Model Digital RF Memory Based EA (ongoing)
