Written by a prominent expert in the field, this authoritative new resource presents anti-ship missile (ASM) electronic protection (EP) techniques designed to enhance accurate target classification currently being developed by personnel from the People’s Republic of China and other nations. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to modern electronic warfare (EW) in an era of information warfare (IW). It explores the capabilities of coherent radar and digital signal processing to rapidly and accurately classify targets. Both naval and air electronic EW are covered in this resource. This book gives insight into modern EW as an information battle and includes guidance on properly testing the effectiveness of electronic attack (EA) systems.
Pulsed Doppler radar basics including, electromagnetic pulse, dynamic range, gain control, and Doppler effects are presented. A summary of the ASM sensor and EA model is provided and readers find coverage of the radar range equation, burn through, and the range Doppler map and imaging. Special topic-extended target classifications including, false, decoys, and chaff are explained. Special topic ASM EP waveforms and multiple receiver EP are also covered. This book explores features of algorithms to optimize combining multiple parameters and systems. Moreover, it explains several algorithms proposed by PRC personnel to implement optimal two-channel processing that mitigates cover noise EA.
