This edition features a wealth of new material on urban warfare, including a computer simulation of EW architecture alternatives for land-based forces based on urban constraints. It also includes an expanded section on time-hopped spread spectrum communications, more details on modern communication system technologies such as CDMA and OFDM, and an in-depth discussion on sources of urban noise. This practical resource is focused on showing the reader how to design and build jammers specifically targeted at spread spectrum, anti-jam communications. Moreover, it gives assistance in evaluating the expected performance of jamming systems against modern communications systems, and discover the best waveform to use to counter communication systems designed to be effective in jamming environments. While mathematical derivations in general are avoided, the book presents error rate performance equations for most modern digital anti-jam communication systems

Worldwide growth of space communications has caused a rapid increase in the number of satellites operating in geostationary orbits, causing overcrowded orbits. This practical resource is designed to help professionals overcome this problem. This timely book provides a solid understanding of the use of radio interferometers for tracking and monitoring satellites in overcrowded environments. Practitioners learn the fundamentals of radio interferometer hardware, including antennas, receiving equipment, signal processing and phase detection, and measurement accuracies. This in-depth volume describes the nature of the targets to be tracked by the interferometer, helping to clarify the movement of target satellites and what specific information has to be caught by the interferometer. Additionally, engineers find details on applications to practical cases of satellite tracking, covering different types of interferometers, recent technical developments, orbital monitoring and safety control.

Receivers systems are considered the core of electronic warfare (EW) intercept systems. Without them, the fundamental purpose of such systems is null and void. This book considers the major elements that make up receiver systems and the receivers that go in them. This resource provides system design engineers with techniques for design and development of EW receivers for modern modulations (spread spectrum) in addition to receivers for older, common modulation formats. Each major module in these receivers is considered in detail. Design information is included as well as performance tradeoffs of various components. Major factors that influence the functioning of the modules are identified and discussed. Key performance parameters are identified as well, and approaches to achieving design goals are considered.

Mit den Fortschritten in der Mikroelektronik wächst auch der Bedarf an VLSI-Realisierungen von digitalen Signalverarbeitungseinheiten. Die zunehmende Komplexität der Signalverarbeitungsverfahren führt insbesondere bei Signalen mit hoher Quellenrate auf Anforderungen, die nur durch spezielle Schaltungsstrukturen erfüllt werden können. Dieses Buch behandelt Schaltungstechniken und Architekturen zur Erzielung hoher Durchsatzraten von Algorithmen der Signalverarbeitung. Neben alternativen Schaltungstechniken zur Realisierung der Basisoperationen, Addition, Multiplikation und Division werden CORDIC-Architekturen zur Implementierung transzendenter Funktionen vorgestellt. Zur Konzeption von Systemen mit Parallelverarbeitung und Pipelining wird ein allgemeines Verfahren zur Abbildung von Signalverarbeitungsalgorithmen auf anwendungsspezifischen Architekturen erläutert. Hierzu werden beispielhaft spezielle Architekturen für Filter, Matrixoperationen und die diskrete Fouriertransformation erörtert. Architekturen programmierbarer digitaler Signalprozessoren sowie beispielhafte zugehörige Implementierungen sind eingeschlossen. Das Buch soll sowohl Studenten und Ingenieure der Elektrotechnik als auch der technischen Informatik mit Architekturkonzepten der digitalen Signalverarbeitung vertraut machen.
