AAIs Advanced Architecture Phase, Amplitude and Time Simulator
(A
2
PATS) is the only electronic warfare (EW) simulator available with
direct-port radio frequency (RF) injection. Critical for advanced EW
receivers, direct injection provides the highest possible signal fidelity
at the lowest cost because it eliminates complex, performance-limiting
RF distribution networks required for multiplexed simulators.
The A
2
PATS incorporates identical, high-performance phase-coherent
Synthetic Stimulus Instruments behind every port for unparalleled
plug-and-play installation, testing availability and user maintenance.
Active, real-time background alignment provides accurate, repeatable
testing results. Coupled with a simplified user interface, the A
2
PATS
reduces training and programming time, as well as minimizes potential
operator error.
AAI has leveraged its expertise as a world leader in EW simulation to
deliver the A
2
PATS architecture, designed to meet advanced digital
EW receiver needs of today and far into the future with a wide range
of port, signal and density configurations.

EW
SEQUESTERED?
t h e v i e w
f rom here
L
ast month, the DOD released its FY2013 budget request, which includes
approximately $5.3 billion for unclassified EW and SIGINT programs (see
Washington Report on p. 22). This represents about 1 percent of the
Pentagons base budget request for $525 billion. These EW and SIGINT
spending numbers are fairly strong across the Services, especially con-
sidering the disproportionate cuts that EW programs historically have
received when the DOD makes spending cuts at the end of a major conflict. As
the US speeds up its withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2013, the President has
announced that the DODs priorities will shift from counter-insurgency (COIN)-
dominated conflicts (like Iraq and Afghanistan), and tilt toward more con-
ventional security challenges in the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East (the
growing influence of China and Iran).
An in-depth review of the FY2013 budget reveals these funding and policy
trends. The tilt toward more conventional operations is apparent from the fund-
ing support for a number of EW programs. After decades of struggling to modern-
ize its shipboard EW, the Navy is planning large buys of upgraded ESM systems and
RF jammers, as well as developing a new active off-board decoy. Support for the
Next Generation Jammer remains strong. The Air Force is upgrading the Defensive
Management System on the B-2, and it is investing in its Global Strike mission
with development of a new bomber (with significant EA capabilities), and other
efforts under the Long Range Strike program. It is also funding a new EW system
for its F-15s, as well as continuing to invest in defensive counterspace (DCS) and
offensive counterspace (OCS) programs, high-power microwave weapons and other
efforts tailored to support military operations against state actors rather than
terrorists and insurgents.
The FY2013 budget request also shows that spending on COIN-related EW and
SIGINT programs has certainly cooled down. The Armys EMARSS SIGINT aircraft
and the Air Forces communications electronic attack pod for UAVs have been can-
celled. In the near-term other programs, such as procurement for AAR-57 Common
Missile Warning System (CMWS) upgrades and IR decoys for helicopters, have been
trimmed compared with FY2013 planned spending outlined in last years defense
budget. This is certainly not an all-out purge. In the Army and Navy accounts,
much of the EW and SIGINT equipment (Duke, JCREW 3.3, CMWS, DoN LAIRCM,
Intrepid Tiger, etc.) bought because of Afghanistan and Iraq is being retained for
the foreseeable future, and in many cases it will be upgraded.
What does all of this EW spending amount to? For the first time since the Cold
War, the DOD is on the verge of achieving a well-balanced EW portfolio that will
serve the US very well for at least the next two decades. This was, in many ways,
built on the backs of thousands of soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan be-
cause they did not have the right EW equipment when they needed it. The great-
est threat to this EW capability is the specter of heavy spending cuts over the
next few years that would almost certainly unbalance the DODs EW strategy and,
ultimately, US national security. John Knowles

he AOC embraces all creeds, even basketball fanatics. Here in
America, March is March Madness month, which means its time for
the NCAA College Basketball Tournament (your humble Presidents
alma mater once advanced to the championship game, as a matter
of fact when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth). According to true
basketball aficionados, college ball is one of the most exciting sports
you can watch. Recently, I was discussing just this topic with a highly esteemed
USAF EWO friend, Lt Col (Ret.) Wayne Loaner Shaw. Wayne happens to be from
Indiana (where basketball is religion), and he made some very good analogies
between EW and basketball.
Basketball is not only a team sport, but a highly collaborative one in which im-
provisational innovation is required. Its arguably one of the most complex team
sports out there, just like EW. And much like a basketball team playing in March
Madness, EW works best when we can all work collaboratively. In the EW world,
peacetime examples would be planning efforts, acquisition efforts, writing new
doctrine and training. Especially in times of uncertain budgets, it is best when all
Services, DOD Agencies, and all of government work together collaboratively in a
deliberate fashion. In wartime, improvisational collaboration is essential. In Iraq
back in 2005, when the US Army said, We need EWOs now! the Navy, Marines and
AF said, Borrow some of ours!
On a bit quicker pace (the game is heating up now), the RC-135 ES/SIGINT guys
say Can you please not jam at such and such time, at such and such RF, and such
and such location, because were getting really good collection on HVI #xyz and
the EA-18G/EA guys say, Sure, well work with the supported ground BTN and see
if they can ROLEX their INFIL 30 minutes. On the fly, and even more real-time
(the players are all in flow now and the crowd is going wild!), the supported SF
ODA team uses their super cool ES gear, which the AOC advocated for, and relays,
HVI target is active, request music on, now! and the EA guys reply Music on,
good luck! and another bad guy gets slam dunked. Sweet!
Were able to do this improvisational innovation in peacetime and wartime
because weve gotten to know each other and each others capabilities during
the build up to March Madness. And how did we get to know each other and each
others capabilities so well? Through the AOC of course!
The AOC in March Madness, in peace, in war we support YOUR team!

INTREPID TIGER II COMPLETES
FLIGHT TESTING
The Marine Corps AN/ALQ-231(V)1
Intrepid Tiger II communications
electronic attack pod has successfully
completed Phase I performance and
flight testing aboard the Services AV-8B
Harrier aircraft. The Naval Air Warfare
Center, Weapons Division (NAWCWD) in
Point Mugu, CA, is the Lead System In-
tegrator (LSI) for the COTS-based jam-
ming system, which is housed within
an AN/ALQ-167 form factor pod shell.
The pods are all fully-assembled and in-
tegrated with their system software at
Point Mugu.
The recent round of testing was con-
ducted by the VX-31 and VX-9 test and
evaluation squadrons at the Naval Air
Weapons Station, (NAWS) in China Lake,
CA. According to LtCol Jason Schuette,
USMC, the EA-6B and Marine Air Ground
Taskforce (MAGTF) Electronic Warfare
Requirements Officer at the US Navys
Air Warfare Division (N88), the testing,
which was completed at the end of Janu-
ary, was very successful, with only a few
growing pains related to such things
as configuration control issues between
the different EMD-model pods, radio
network interference that they were
able to deal with using filters, and a
Hazard Review Investigation (HRI) issue
related to potential on-ground radiation
concerns.
As described by Schuette, the Phase
I Quick Reaction Assessment (QRA)
testing was primarily focused on prov-
ing the systems capabilities as a com-
munications jammer and its ability to
effectively deal with the target sets
identified in Operations Enduring Free-
dom and Iraqi Freedom. As such, says
Schuette, We envision the system being
used in direct support of radio battal-
ion communications jamming require-
US ARMY AWARDS CIRCM CONTRACTS
The US Army last month awarded
a pair of long-anticipated contracts
to begin the Technology Development
(TD) phase of its next-generation ro-
tary-wing directed infrared counter-
measures (DIRCM) program.
The Army tapped BAE Systems
(Nashua, NH), under a $38 million
contract and Northrop Grumman
(Rolling Meadows, IL), under a $31.4
million contract to develop and deliv-
er 11 (each) prototype CIRCM systems
for evaluation. BAE Systems proposed
its Boldstroke DIRCM while Northrop
Grumman and teammates Selex Gali-
leo and Daylight Solutions offered the
Eclipse Pointer-Tracker and the Solar-
is laser unit.
While the DOD currently uses
first-generation DIRCM systems,
such as Northrop Grummans AAQ-24
Large Aircraft IR Countermeasures
(LAIRCM) system and BAE Systems
ALQ-212 Advanced Threat IR Coun-
termeasures (ATIRCM) system to
protect its larger fixed and rotary-
wing aircraft, the CIRCM program is
aimed at developing a lighter-weight
DIRCM for smaller attack, utility and
transport helicopters that cannot
carry the heavier first-generation
DIRCM systems. These smaller rota-
ry-wing platforms currently rely on
countermeasures flares and flash-
lamp IR jammers, such as the ALQ-
144, to defeat IR-guided missiles.
Survivability against advanced IR
threats, such as the SA-18 and SA-
24, will be significantly improved
with the addition of DIRCM technol-
ogy on these aircraft.
The CIRCM TD phase will run
through October 2013 before the
Army selects one of the two con-
tractors to continue with a two-year
Engineering and Manufacturing De-
velopment phase beginning in 2014.
The Army plans to make a Milestone
C full-rate production decision in
2016. J. Knowles

ments, such as in support of specific
coordinate or high-value-target search
missions providing effects as needed.
Given its initial Harrier-based deploy-
ment, Schuette says he doesnt see the
system being conducive to just sitting
out there and drilling holes in the sky
to counter persistent EW threat types.
Although the Harrier pilots will also
be able to control the pod, the system is
intended to be remotely operated by Ma-
rine Radio Battalion (RadBn) personnel
on the ground. Eventually, the expecta-
tion is that individual Marine units will
also be able to access and control the
pod using a handheld device.
Related to this, Intrepid Tiger II also
serves as an enabler of net-centric war-
fare as part of the Marine Air Ground
Task Force EW (MAGTF EW) concept, pro-
viding EW support to Marine and Joint
ground forces through linking and/
or networking with other airborne and
ground-based EW nodes. The system had
earlier successfully participated in the
Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD)
Collaborative Online Reconnaissance
Provider/Operationally Responsive At-
tack Link (CORPORAL) Joint Capabilities
Technology Demonstration (JCTD).
Schuette said the CORPORAL demon-
stration illustrated how Marines in the
field would be able to access and con-
trol the Intrepid Tiger system through
a hand-held device, but the challenge
going forward will be to identify and
package the information and function-
ality that will be of actual use to them
in a user-efficient way. Says Schuette,
Similarly to what you might see in an
app for a smart phone, we want to just
give them what they need to generate
the effect they want, or that gives them
some type of indication and warning of
activities in their area that they need to
know about.
The Intrepid Tiger program office has
requested approval from COMOPTEV 4 for
a second QRC assessment effort to inte-
grate the system onto the F/A-18. This
upgrade would also include adding an
electronic sensing capability to the sys-
tem. Says Schuette, Right now, the pod
is limited to electronic attack, and we
want to give it a survey capability as
well. If given the go-ahead, the hope is
that we could finish that testing in this
fiscal year.
Once the Marine Corps HQ completes
its review of the test results and gives
approval, Schuette says five to six In-
trepid Tiger II pods will be deployed to a
Harrier squadron in theater as an Early
Operational Capability (EOC). There, the
pods will be further evaluated and used

ONR SEEKS ADVANCED EO/IR
COUNTERMEASURES TECHNOLOGY
The Office of Naval Research (ONR),
Electronic Warfare Division (ONR Code
312EW), has released a Broad Agency An-
nouncement (BAA) for the development
and demonstration of next-generation
EW components and systems to counter
advanced Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/
IR) threat tracking systems, missiles
and other Precision Guided Munitions
(PGMs). The announcement specifies
that proposed solutions should focus on
defeating the underlying EO/IR enabling
techniques or technologies rather than
individual IR threats and sensor systems.
ONR plans to issue multiple awards rang-
ing from $500,000 to $1.5 million per year
with periods of performance from one to
three years and an estimated start date
of January 2, 2013.
ONR is specifically interested in mul-
tispectral semiconductor lasers, con-
tinuously tunable multispectral fiber/
waveguide lasers, non-mechanical beam
steering, and innovative EW concepts.
The objective of the multispectral
semiconductor laser effort is to devel-
op and demonstrate a semiconductor-
based, multi-wavelength integrated
laser source spanning multiple bands
of the ultraviolet (UV), visible (VIS),
near infrared (NIR), short-wave infrared
(SWIR), mid-wave infrared (MWIR), and
long-wave infrared (LWIR) spectrum
with multiple discrete spectral line
emissions and particular emphasis on
inclusion of the MWIR band. The mul-
tiple discrete laser emissions must be
combined to produce a single continu-
ous wave (CW) multispectral beam with
good beam quality (M^2 < 3) and output
powers of not less than 5 Watts (thresh-
old) to greater than 10 Watts (objective)
in each spectral band.
The continuously tunable multi-
spectral fiber/waveguide laser effort
is focused on development of a multi-
wavelength integrated laser source
with optical fibers/waveguides as the
lasing media, spanning multiple bands
of the UV, VIS, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, and
LWIR spectrum with continuously tun-
able output emissions. The system must
produce a single output beam with good
beam quality and output powers of not
less than 10 W (threshold) to greater
than 20 W (objective) across as much of
the full spectral tuning range as pos-
sible, again with particular emphasis on
inclusion of the MWIR band.
Interest in non-mechanical beam
steering is focused on technologies that
will allow coherent energy spanning
multiple bands of the ultraviolet UV,
VIS, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR spec-
trum to be directed in a low divergence
beam with minimal or no side lobes over
an angular range covering not less than
120-degrees conical (threshold) up to a
complete hemisphere (objective). Pro-
posed beam steering technologies should
be at least as fast (preferably faster),
than current mechanical approaches

The ONR EW D&I Program Office
conducted an unclassified briefing
for potential offerors on February 10
(http://www.onr.navy.mil/02/BAA/).
The due date for white papers is March
16. Follow-on oral presentations of se-
lected papers will be made in late April,
and full proposals are due on June 8.
The BAA Number is: 12-008. The primary
point of contact is Dr. Peter Craig, e-mail:

IN BRIEF
BAE Systems (Nashua, NH), formally
announced that it has won a contract
from Northrop Grumman Aerospace
Systems to provide a new ESM system
that will be integrated onto the US Air
Forces B-2 Spirit bombers. The ESM sys-
tem, in conjunction with the B-2s RWR,
provides threat warning and situation-
al awareness for the stealthy bomber.
Northrop Grumman selected BAE Sys-
tems in late 2010 (see JED January 2011,
p. 18). In related news, the US Air Forces
B-2 program office announced plans to
award a $133,464.00 contract to ITT
Exelis Electronic Systems, Technical
Services Operation (Thousand Oaks, CA)
for one portable AN/PLM-4(V)3 Radar
Signal Simulator (RSS), high power ver-
sion with extended frequency range, to
replace the aging Improved Radar Simu-
lator that was originally bought in 1984.
The PLM-4 will be used at Whiteman
AFB, MO to test various EW subsystems
installed on B-2 aircraft.

Argon ST (Fairfax, VA), a subsidiary
of Boeing, has received $53 million un-
der a contract option from the US Navy
for the second full-rate production lot
of the Ships Signal Exploitation Equip-
ment (SSEE) Increment F system. The
company will build eight systems and
deliver them over the next 19 months.

Frequency Electronics (Mitchell
Field, NY), has completed the acquisi-
tion of outstanding shares of Elcom
Technologies (Rockleigh, NJ). For the
past five years, Frequency Electronics
has held a minority stake in the ELINT
receiver manufacturer.

The Office of Naval Research (ONR)
in Arlington, VA, has released a new
Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)
for innovative electronics technology
development. BAA 12-010 calls for pro-
posals that focus on next generation
electronics and devices that provide im-
proved performance in broadband, ag-
ile and compact RF filtering; front-end
analog signal processing; and antennas.
According to the BAA, the goal of the
research is to stimulate innovative pro-
posals that offer compelling advances in
the radiation, reception, signal control,
and processing of microwave and MMW
signals for Navy C4ISR systems... Inno-
vative solutions are sought in the areas
of compact, broadband filters for wide
frequency agile signal transmission and
reception; wideband frequency channel-
izers and signal cancellation techniques
for high dynamic range receivers; and
electrically small antennas for direc-
tional transmission and reception.

pert, ONR Code 312 Electronics, Sensors,
and Networks Research Division, e-mail
stephen.pappert@navy.mil. In related
news, ONR, under a previous BAA (BAA
11-006) awarded a $2.6 million contract
to Accelerated Development and Sup-
port Corp. (Malibu, CA), for Wideband
GaN EW Support Receive Components.

The US Air Force said last month
that it is planning an extensive up-
grade program for approximately 350 of
the approximately 1,000 F-16s current
in service. The upgrade program, esti-
mated to cost $2.8 billion, will cover EW
systems, AESA radars, sensors, commu-
nications and cockpit displays.

The Office of the Secretary of De-
fense Comparative Testing Office last
month announced the research topics for
its FY12 Defense Acquisition Challenge
(DAC) program. Among the research areas,
the DAC program will focus on hostile fire
and aircrew protection from small arms
and man-portable air defense systems;
man-portable electronic countermea-
sures; personal small arms fire detection;
IR signature reduction; and frequency
spectrum management and optimization.

Naval Sea Systems Commands
PMS-408 EOD/CREW program office has
announced plans to hold its annual clas-
sified Open Business Industry Informa-
tion Exchange Day at the Johns Hopkins
Applied Physics Lab (Laurel, MD), on
April 4. According to the announcement,
PMS-408 EOD/CREW plans for a series
of incremental developments to enable
technology insertion and technology re-
fresh as follows: 1) Technology insertion
updates cut into the existing production
line every three years to include hard-
ware, firmware or software. 2) Periodic
technology refresh of fielded systems
every six years (retrofitting - fielded
systems), to maintain common baselines
and to account for obsolescence while
countering the rapidly evolving threat.
The point of contact is Sherri Patsos,
(202) 781-0078, e-mail JCREWIIEDay@
navy.mil. The registration deadline is
March 19. Naval Sea Systems Command
has also announced plans to acquire up
to 6,000 Symphony IED jammers from
Lockheed Martin MS2 (Manassas, VA).

Lockheed Martin MS2 (Syracuse,
NY), and Raytheon Space and Airborne
Systems (Goleta, CA), have agreed on a
teaming arrangement to compete for the
US Navys upcoming Surface EW Improve-
ment Program (SEWIP) Block 3 upgrade,
which will modernize the Navys AN/
SLQ-32 (V)3/4 shipboard jamming sys-
tems. Lockheed Martin is the prime con-
tractor for the SEWIP Block 2 ES upgrade
currently ongoing within the Navy, and
Raytheon is the original manufacturer
of the SLQ-32. The Lockheed/Raytheon
team will likely face competition from
Northrop Grumman and possibly ITT Ex-
elis and BAE Systems. a

I saw the Message from the AOC President in the Febru-
ary 2012 Journal of Electronic Defense titled, IS IT TIME
FOR A SPECTRUM CZAR? The tone of the message is RIGHT
ON! However, there is a Spectrum CZAR. Its the National
Telecommunications and Information Agency (NTIA). The
problem is, they dont think of themselves as part of Elec-
tronic Warfare or Spectrum Warfare or Spectrum Domi-
nanc. Nor do they think of the spectrum as a potential
warfare domain.
There are lots of committees and subcommittees
chaired by the NTIA, but they all add up to a bunch of
green eye shade clerks plugging square peg frequency
assignments into the square hole spectrum.
Our AOC President is right on. It is time for the NTIA
(and Military Communications Electronics Board (MCEB))
to really step up and take charge! In fact, while we are
upgrading things, lets change the MCEB to the Military
Spectrum Dominance Board and really take charge.

DOD RELEASES FY2013 BUDGET REQUEST
The Pentagon, having received White House guidance earlier
this year on a national security policy shift that will focus heav-
ily on the Asia-Pacific region, released its FY2013 budget request
to Congress last month. The Department is asking for $5.3 billion
for electronic warfare (EW) and signals intelligence (SIGINT)
programs, with approximately $2.3 billion proposed for research
and development and $3 billion requested for procurement.
ARMY
The Army wants to spend $301.5 million in FY2013 on re-
search and development for EW and SIGINT. This includes $49.3
million for the Integrated EW System (IEWS) and $97.4 million
on the Common IR Countermeasures (CIRCM) system. (The Navy
is also requesting $4.4 million toward CIRCM development in
FY2013.) Across the FY2013-2017 Future Years Defense Program
(FYDP), the Army plans to spend $508.4 million on IEWS R&D,
and the Army and Navy are estimating $508.4M in joint spend-
ing for CIRCM development. One minor new start in the Army
R&D accounts is $4.7 million for Next Generation Signals,
part of an upgrade for the Armys Prophet SIGINT system.
The Army is seeking $241.9 million for EW and SIGINT pro-
curement. This includes $127.8 million for AAR-57 Common
Missile Warning System Generation 3 Electronic Control Units;
$48.7 million for 13 Prophet Ground SIGINT systems and $15.4
million for 112 Duke Technology Insertion (DTI) units. (The
Army could buy as many as 27,500 DTI units over the next
several years.)
NAVY AND MARINE CORPS
The Navy and Marine Corps are requesting a total of $3
billion for EW and SIGINT programs in FY2013. This includes
$84.8 million for operations and maintenance, $942.3 million
for R&D and $2 billion for procurement.
Airborne Electronic Attack dominates the Navys bud-
get request. The largest R&D item is $187 million for
the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ). This represents a
significant reduction ($150 million) for the program.
(In last years budget, the Navy said it planned to
spend $337.7 million on NGJ development in FY2013.)
The Navy estimates the total NGJ development cost at
$2 billion. The Navy is also requesting $1 billion for
procurement of its final 12 EA-18Gs.
The Navy is seeking $69.5 million for continued
development of the Joint Allied Threat Awareness Sys-
tem (JATAS), which is slated to enter production in
FY2014. (The Navy estimates JATAS production will
total $1.2 billion.) It also plans to spend $114.7 million on pro-
curement of airborne EW self-protection systems, such as DoN
LAIRCM systems for Marine Corps CH-53 helicopters and ALQ-
214 jammers for F/A-18C/D Hornets.
The Navy is requesting $151.4 million for surface ship EW
R&D. The DODs new defense strategy has brought a particu-
lar focus to this area, as Chinese and Iranian anti-ship mis-
siles represent significant threats. The Navys request includes
money for various aspects of the Surface EW Improvement Pro-
gram (SEWIP), as development of the Block 2 electronic sup-
port system winds down in preparation for full-rate production
in FY2014, and development of the Block 3 electronic attack
system ramps up. In the shipboard SIGINT area, the Navy plans
to spend $23.3 million to continue upgrades to the Ship Signals
Exploitation Equipment (SSEE), as it migrates from SSEE Incre-
ments E and F to Increment G.
The Marines plan to spend $13 million developing upgrades
and enhancements for ground-based SIGINT and electronic at-
tack systems, including its Team Portable Collection System
(TPCS) and the vehicle-mounted Communication Emitter Sens-
ing and Attacking System (CESAS). The Navy will also spend
$71.3 million on JCREW development for the Marines. JCREW
executive agent responsibilities will be transferring to the
Army in the future.
AIR FORCE
The Air Force is requesting $1.7 billion for EW and SIGINT
programs related to airborne, space and cyber programs.
This includes $974.8 million for R&D and $697.4 million for
procurement.
Major R&D programs in the FY2013 request include Long
Range Strike, which has significant EW content, and $281
million for B-2 Defensive Management System Modernization
(DMS-M), which represents a new start. The Air Force plans
to spend a total of $1.2 billion on B-2 DMS-M development,
which will focus on a new ESM system for the aircraft. Another
new start is the F-15 Eagle Passive/Active Warning Survivabil-
ity System (EPAWSS), which will replace the F-15s Tactical EW
Suite (TEWS). The Air Force wants to upgrade 396 F-15s with
the EPAWSS.
In the Air Forces EW procurement accounts, $169 million
is requested for the LAIRCM system, as installations continue
on C-17, C-5, C-130J and HC/MC-130J aircraft. The Air Force
also wants $87.5 million for 220 Miniature Air Launched Decoy-
Jammer (MALD-J) systems. The Air Force has cancelled the
MALD-J Increment II program. J. Knowles a

UAT MOD 2 DIGITAL RESM DEPLOYED ON TYPE 45 DESTROYER
An upgraded Outfit UAT radar elec-
tronic support measures (RESM) sys-
tem incorporating wideband digital
receiver technology has entered UK
Royal Navy (RN) service on board HMS
Daring, the first of the RNs six new
Type 45 destroyers.
Evolved from the RNs in-service
Outfit UAT Mod 1 RESM suite, the new
Mod 2 system developed by Thales
UK pulls through technology and
techniques previously matured by
Thales and the Ministry of Defences
(MODs) Defence Science and Technol-
ogy Laboratory (Dstl) under the Daphne
and DART (Digital Advanced Receiver
Technology) research programs. It also
marks the first step along a long-term
RESM equipment strategy and technol-
ogy roadmap intended to meet require-
ments identified by the MODs Above
Water Capability branch out to 2020-25.
Outfit UAT Mod 2 introduces a new
digital antenna, based on direct RF
sampling and wideband digital re-
ceiver technology, which delivers sub-
stantial improvements in sensitivity,
direction finding and parameter mea-
surement in dense electromagnetic en-
vironments. Thales says that the fact
that the bulk of receiver functionality
is implemented as software and firm-
ware algorithms means the system is
more easily upgraded, allowing new
signal analysis functionality to be in-
serted to maintain performance and
pace emerging threats.
In addition, the move to a digital
front end is also seen to offer the po-
tential for significant cost reductions
in both acquisition and support. This
is achieved through the elimination of
the analog microwave components and
specialist subsystems traditionally as-
sociated with the RF receiver chain,
and the adoption of COTS components.
Thales UKs Electronic Combat
Systems unit, part of the groups De-
fence Mission Systems business, was
in June 2005 contracted to build the
original Daphne demonstrator for
laboratory and shore-based testing
of a next-generation RESM based on
wideband digital receiver technol-
ogy performing front-end sampling
and analog-to-digital conversion at
the masthead. This testbed system
was delivered to Dstls Portsdown
West site overlooking the Solent
in 2009 and, according to Dstl, has
subsequently demonstrated very
significant performance benefits
compared with the in-service UAT
Mod 1 system.
The follow-on DART programs at
Thales extend the capability of the
digital receiver hardware and associat-
ed high-direction-of-arrival accuracy
phase comparison antenna originally
designed as part of the Daphne dem-
onstrator. The hardware was also rug-
gedized for sea trials.
Thales UK has subsequently ex-
ecuted an accelerated development,
integration and test program to
transition the UAT Mod 2 technol-
ogy from the demonstrator phase
through to platform acceptance in
around 19 months.
According to the company, the first
UAT Mod 2 ship system completed fac-
tory acceptance in November 2011,
with installation, setting-to-work
and harbor acceptance tests on board
Daring conducted at Portsmouth Na-
val Base in December 2011. Sea trials
were completed at the start of January
2012, with Daring sailing on January
11 to commence a seven-month maid-
en deployment east of Suez.
A second Outfit UAT Mod 2 system,
scheduled to equip HMS Diamond, has
completed factory acceptance testing.
Diamond, the third of the RNs Type
45 destroyers, is due to deploy for the
first time later in 2012. R. Scott
IN BRIEF
Thales Aerospace (Elancourt, France)
has won a contract from the French
MODs Direction gnrale de larmement
(DGA) to adapt Analyseur de Signaux
TACtiques (ASTAC) ELINT pods for use
on Arme de lair (French Air Force)
Mirage 2000D aircraft. The 400-kg, B-
to K-band ASTAC pods are currently
fitted to the Air Forces Mirage F.1CR
aircraft, which are due to retire from
service in the 2013-2014 timeframe.
According to several press reports,
officials from Australias Department
of Defence (DOD) have indicated that
the Australian Government will soon
make a decision to move forward with
plans to buy ALQ-218 ESM systems for
at least six of the Royal Australian Air
Forces new F/A-18F Super Hornets. The
RAAF bought 24 Super Hornets, and 12
were configured to receive the ALQ-
218, as well as associated hardware and
software, in the so-called Growler Lite
configuration.
In other news from Down Under, BAE
Systems Australia received an AUS$19
million contract from the Australian
DODs Defence Materiel Organisation to
provide through-life support for the
Nulka anti-ship missile decoy for the
next six years. The contract includes
options that would extend Nulka sup-
port at ship and shore facilities for a
further 18 years. The company also
received a AUS$43 million contract
from Boeing for maintenance, engi-
neering and support services for the
ESM and EW self-protection systems on
the RAAFs Wedgetail AEW aircraft.
Niitek, Inc. (Dulles, VA), a subsidiary
of Chemring plc, has signed a collabo-
ration agreement with MBDA Italia
(Rome, Italy) to work together on vehi-
cle-mounted ground penetrating radar
systems. One aspect of the partnership
calls for Niitek to deliver GPR kits to
MBDA for integration on the latters

A truism of all military endeavors is
that priorities and plans will necessar-
ily change. So it is that, as we begin
the current decade, its clear that the
DODs path forward for providing com-
prehensive helicopter self-protection
has turned away from an all-inclusive-
single-solution approach toward one
that provides the most effective EW ca-
pability possible, for as many platforms
as possible, as soon as possible. The rea-
sons for this are many, with the reality
of looming budget cuts certainly lead-
ing the way, but another clear reality is
the impracticality of trying to shoehorn
a new, single-system EW solution into
a wide array of disparate rotary-wing
platforms, many of which are slated for
near- and mid-term retirement.
This means that the two major next-
generation aircraft survivability equip-
ment (ASE) systems, the Navy-led Joint
and Allied Threat Awareness System
(JATAS) and the Armys Common Infra-
red Countermeasures (CIRCM) systems
will likely be fielded on fewer platforms.
Instead, the primary military rotorcraft
users, the Army and Navy/Marines are
taking a close look at their inventory
of current and planned helicopter plat-
forms, and making an upfront deter-
mination of which are best served by a
tailored upgrade of their existing ASE
systems, and which can efficiently, and
cost-effectively, incorporate the next-
generation capability.
That said, the overriding and im-
mediate objective for all the Services
remains the same providing improved
warning and protection for all their rota-
ry-wing platforms, particularly against
IR-missiles as well as unguided weapon
systems, such as rocket propelled gre-
nades (RPGs) and small arms. In terms of
technology, this means improved UV, IR
or multi-spectral-detection, laser-warn-
ing, hostile fire indication (HFI), and
countermeasures that include flares,
directed IR countermeasures and radar
jammers.
US ARMY AND THE AAR-57
For the Army, the class of rotorcraft
now tagged for upgrade of their current
ASE system includes platforms already
equipped with the BAE Systems (Nash-
ua, NH) AAR-57(V) Common Missile
Warning System (CMWS). At the present
time, the Army has no plans to acquire
the JATAS system. Says, COL John Leap-
heart, Army Program Director, Aircraft
Survivability Equipment (PM-ASE), It
would be irresponsible at this point in
time, given the economic environment
and some of the cuts coming across the
entire DOD, to throw away the very large
investment weve made in CMWS and
some other systems in order to bring a
new truly-integrated system onto the
current generation of aircraft. My guid-
ance to the team is that anything we do
must fit inside the existing ASE foot-
print onboard the aircraft. So, were not
looking to bring a new system onto an
existing aircraft. We want to drive in-
tegration amongst the systems that are
already there.
The Army is now completing test-
ing of the latest CMWS software release,
which includes a new HFI function de-
veloped under a Quick Reaction Capabil-
ity (QRC) program. This functionality
will be fielded together with the Gen
III Electronic Control Unit (ECU), the
next-generation processor for the CMWS.
The new ECU also potentially allows for
additional ASE functionality process-
ing such as radar and laser warning, as
well as for directed IR countermeasures.
Leapheart says every platform that cur-
rently has the CMWS will get the GEN III
ECU and, as a result, the HFI QRC. Well
start deployment in theater in May of
2012, giving us limited hostile fire ca-
pability against small arms and RPGs,
and the increased processing power pro-
vided by the GEN III ECU will also al-
low us to expand the threat data base as
well as look at other areas for future ASE
integration.

Although, the FY2012 defense spend-
ing bill includes a cut in AAR-57 procure-
ment funding from $162.8M to $104.3M,
Leapheart says the cut primarily im-
pacts fixed-wing aircraft, where there
have been issues with sensor placement
etc., rather than helicopters.
US NAVY AND THE AAR-47
Similarly, the US Navy is working to
upgrade its AAR-47 MWS installed on
Navy and Marine helicopters. Says CAPT
Paul Overstreet, Navy Program Manager
for Advanced Tactical Aircraft Protec-
tion Systems (PMA-272), Open architec-
tures, like that of the next-generation
JATAS, are key (to higher levels of in-
tegration), but we have a tremendous
amount of legacy equipment and plat-
forms out there, so the decision is that
platforms that are being phased out like
the AH-1W and the older UH-1s are not
going to get JATAS.
Built by ATK Defense Electronics
Systems (Clearwater, FL), the UV-sensor-
based AAR-47 consists of four sensor
units oriented about the aircraft, pro-
viding 360-degree protection. In addi-
tion to providing aircrew warning, the
systems processor cues an onboard flare
dispenser (ALE-39, ALE-40 or ALE-47.)
In some aircraft, control and indication
are integrated into the AN/APR-39 radar
warning receiver controls and displays.
The latest variant of the system, the
AAR-47B(V)2 provides improved missile
and laser warning, as well as an HFI ca-
pability. According to Bill Kasting, VP
and General Manager of ATK Defense
Electronics Systems, Modifications
have been made to some of the filtering
functions in the sensor itself and some
of the detection algorithms were also
modified to provide a lower false alarm
rate in higher clutter environments. A
new control indicator incorporating the
laser warning capability is also provided
for aircraft not equipped with an APR-
39. Says Kasting, Over the last three
years, weve been in the process of up-
grading nearly all fielded AAR-47 sys-
tems to the B(V)2 configuration.
RF WARNING AND THE APR-39
Of all the ASE systems in service, the
Northrop Grumman AN/APR-39 RWR, in
its many versions, has to be the most
widely installed across the DOD rotary-
wing fleet, and the longest-lived. To
date, over 6,000 APR-39 systems have

been installed on both US and inter-
national rotorcraft platforms including
the AH-1W/Z, UH-1N/Y, MV-22B, UH-60,
OH-58D, CH-46/47/53, and AH-64A/D.
Although, as observed by Overstreet,
in recent conflicts such as Iraq and Af-
ghanistan, RF threats have not proven
as significant as IR and small arms fire
for helicopter platforms, who knows
what the future will bring.
Already, the Libyan conflict has
highlighted this point, but perhaps of
even greater significance to the impor-
tance of the APR-39, is the role it plays
on many helicopter platforms in also in-
tegrating and displaying warning data
from other ASE sensors and systems.
Integrated with both laser and missile
warning systems, the newer versions of
the APR-39 are increasingly serving as
the overall controller for a helicopters
ASE suite.
Jeff Palombo, Northrop Grumman VP
and General Manager, Land and Self Pro-
tection Systems Division (Rolling Mead-
ows, IL), says this is one of the larger
next-capability functions for the AN/
APR-39. Working through the companys
Rotorcraft Avionics Innovation Labo-
ratory (RAIL), Palombo says Northrop
Grumman has been continually work-
ing to utilize and improve the APR-
39s capabilities as an integrated ASE
suite controller. Weve already dem-
onstrated the ability to utilize all the
targeted analog hardware on existing
platforms, piping their information into
a same-form-factor APR-39 where it is
fused with the data from other sensors
to provide an unambiguous, single set
of threat information to the pilot. In
2010, the Army awarded Northrop Grum-
man a $450M IDIQ contract to upgrade
770 APR-39s to the new configuration.
In addition, the Naval Air Systems
Command announced last March that it
intends to award a new sole source con-
tract to Northrop Grumman to upgrade
the APR-39 to a new AN/APR-39D(V)2
configuration. As described by Over-
street, Its essentially an ECP to the
current system that corrects some cur-
rent deficiencies and provides greater
capability, but meets the same size
and weight requirements of the current
system. As part of the upgrade, the

39D(V2) will incorporate a new digital
receiver to handle environments that in-
clude greater threat densities as well as
more commercial and civilian emitters
that must be sorted from the threats.
Its one of the first forays into digital
receivers in a small form factor for the
helicopter community, says Overstreet.
Were leveraging our current APR-39
production requirements for new heli-
copters and new MV-22s to upgrade to
digital. The MV-22 is the lead platform
to receive the upgrade.
Although the Navy and Marines dont
currently have a jamming requirement
for their rotary-wing aircraft, the size
and weight savings offered by the digi-
tal receiver design raises the possibility
of an electronic attack capability be-
ing incorporated into the APR-39D(V2)
configuration. In fact, the Army has
expressed interest in just that. Says
Leapheart, This is a great example of
how the Services can work together.
Were watching the Navys effort very
closely and hope to be able to get fund-
ing in the 2014-18 timeframe to follow
in the same path, both in terms of the
digital RWR as well as having the poten-
tial to expand it into a jammer.
THE JOINT AND ALLIED THREAT
AWARENESS SYSTEM (JATAS)
When the Navy conceived its Joint
and Allied Threat Awareness System
(JATAS) program several years ago, it
planned to replace most of its AAR-47
RWRs, (as well as all of its AAR-57s and
Northrop Grumman AAR-54s), with the
next-generation system that could per-
form missile warning, laser warning and
HFI. The Navy expected that fleet-wide
installation of a common IR threat warn-
ing system would achieve modernization
while limiting sustainment costs. How-
ever, the cost of buying and installing
enough JATAS systems to cover most of
the US Navy and USMC rotary-wing fleets
is no longer viable in the constrained
DOD budget. Overstreet now notes that
JATAS is designed for the smaller plat-
forms and says, beyond the lead MV-22B
Osprey integration platform and Ma-
rine AH-1Z Viper and UH-1Y Venom
helicopters, additional JATAS installa-
tions will be made on a to-be-deter-
mined basis. JATAS is targeted for the
newer platforms, older platforms will not
get JATAS, but those platforms will be
phasing out, says Overstreet.
In addition, Overstreet says that, al-
though the Navy is configuring JATAS
to be compatible with Army platforms
as well, the Army is not currently com-
mitted to acquiring it. The Army is not
part of our acquisition strategy in terms
of procurement. We are funded and
planned for Navy and Marine Corps plat-
forms only. In the event that the Army
does decide to equip their helicopters
with a new MWS, however, OSD had di-
rected that it must be JATAS.
JATAS is a two-color-IR-based system
and, unlike the AAR-47, does not incor-
porate a UV component. Overstreet notes
that UV has challenges in false alarm
rate, range and operation in high-clut-
ter areas, making it unsuitable for use
over urban areas. Though weve largely
corrected this with the AAR-47B(V)2,
its still an issue, and the fleet highly
emphasizes low false-alarm rate. As
described by ATKs Kasting, the AAR-
47 sensor is a single-pixel staring array

that identifies only the quadrant that
you are being attacked from, while the
JATAS multi-spectral imaging IR sensor
can calculate angle-of-arrival (AOA) and
pinpoint the specific ground location of
the threat. JATAS also provides a sig-
nificant increase in HFI capability and
laser detection over what the AAR-47
has today. Kasting adds that, since JA-
TAS was designed from the outset to be
form-fit-and-function compatible with
the AAR-47, it will make integration
across the fleet that much easier. And,
since both the hardware and software
architecture is completely open, it will
also be easier to integrate with other
future capabilities over time.
Overstreet agrees that open architec-
tures are key to higher levels of integra-
tion. As new aircraft like the CH-53K,
the new mission computer for the MV-
22, and the open-architecture CIRCM
system come along, this will enable us
to do true plug and play. Well be able to
integrate many more systems than we
can now with the legacy systems. This
is where the glass cockpit display will
really come into play.
JATAS interfaces with the existing
AN/ALE-47 Countermeasures Dispensing
System (CMDS) as well as the Depart-
ment of the Navy (DoN) Large Aircraft
Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM)
system, and CIRCM. Though the system
is designed to be controlled by the host
platforms mission computer and multi-
function displays, in some cases, con-
trol and indication for the JATAS will
still be through the AN/APR-39.
According to Overstreet, The most
basic integration may use the existing
APR-39 as a bus controller and display
head, but its a much more advanced in-
tegration as we get away from the APR-
39 to mission computers and cockpit
displays, as with the MV-22 integration.
Future integration may tie JATAS to
helmet displays like those in the AH-1Z
attack helicopter.
A critical design review for JATAS is
planned for May of this year, and the
First EMD model hardware is scheduled
to be delivered at the end of December
for integration on the MV-22B, at which
time it will also have an official mili-
tary nomenclature. First flight tests are
planned for March of 2013, Low-rate
initial production (LRIP) deliveries are
scheduled for early 2015, and initial op-
erational capability (IOC) is planned for
later that year.
ACTIVE COUNTERMEASURES: LAIRCM
In general, the US military currently
has four active Directed IR Countermea-
sure (DIRCM) programs at some stage of
implementation. For large rotorcraft,
these include the Air Forces (AAQ-
24(V) Large Aircraft IR Countermeasure
(LAIRCM) system, and the follow-on
Department of the Navy (DoN) LAIRCM
effort. Since both of these systems are
produced by Northrop Grumman, they
tend to incorporate similar technology
and sensor configurations.
Says Northrop Grummans Palom-
bo, Essentially what we provide with
LAIRCM and DoN LAIRCM is an open
architecture system that enables our
customers to work with us to select
the best capability for their specific
application. For example, the USMC
customer has a five-sensor solution on

their CH-53s that are in a podded con-
figuration, allowing the system to be
transferred from aircraft to aircraft to
save costs. To date, LAIRCM has been
integrated with five different missile
warning systems, as well multiple jam
heads, cockpit displays and other plat-
form-specific subsystems.
Together, the Navy and Marine Corps
are equipping 156 CH-53D, CH-53E and
CH-46E transport helicopters with DoN
LAIRCM systems. The system includes
the Northrop Grumman Viper laser,
as well as the Guardian Laser Trans-
mitter Assembly and the AAR-54 mis-
sile warning system. The Navy has
contracted with Northrop Grumman to
begin replacing the DoN LAIRCM sys-
tems UV missile warning sensors with
two-color IR Advanced Threat Warning
(ATW) sensors. Along the lines of JA-
TAS multifunctionality, ATW sensors
will enable the DoN LAIRCM system to
perform missile warning, laser warning
and HFI, as well as potentially provide
video for situational awareness.
According to Palombo, Through the
ATW multi-function sensor, weve been
able to continually physically shrink
the hardware while providing additional
capability in the same form factor. This
approach allows you to remove other
platform sensors and their associated
processors, potentially saving 40-50 lbs
on a helicopter platform. Says Over-
street, The information is much more
precise with obviously lower false alarm
rates. Its probably the most capable mis-
sile warning system out there until JA-
TAS comes on line together with a very
capable IR jammer. A critical design re-
view (CDR) of the ATW sensor has been
completed, and it will go into flight test
later this year. Overstreet says it should
be made available to the fleet sometime
next year.
Northrop Grumman is also now in
production on a new missile warning
system design for the US Air Forces
LAIRCM program. The USAF awarded the
company a $79 million contract last year
for the NexGen MWS, which will be in-
stalled on Air Force Special Operations
Command CV-22s, as well as C-17, C-130
and C-5 aircraft.
ATIRCM
In the meantime, for the Army,
the BAE Systems AN/ALQ-212(V) Ad-
vanced Threat IR Countermeasures
System (ATIRCM) continues to play
a role for that Services larger rotor-
craft platforms. In September of last
year, the Army increased the number
of CH-47s that will be fitted with the
ALQ-212 ATIRCM from 83 helicopters
to 120. As described by Leapheart,
ATIRCM has enjoyed higher reliability
than anyone thought it would, with
reliability numbers in theater three-
to-four times projections. Because of
this, weve actually been able to pull
spare LRUs off the shelf and assemble
end items to equip some of the CH-47s
in advance of the production units. We
dont want any CH-47s in theater fly-
ing without that protection aboard.
Leapheart, expects this will be the
final procurement for ATIRCM, so as
units rotate home, the Army will rely
on a plan to regularly transfer its ex-
isting inventory of ATIRCM systems to
deploying aircraft.

CIRCM
The big EW news of the year thus far
is the Armys awarding of two Technol-
ogy Development (TD) contracts for the
Common Infrared Countermeasures (CIR-
CM) system. Northrop Grumman ($31.4
million) and BAE Systems ($38 million)
received the awards on January 31 to de-
velop the next-generation countermea-
sures system for rotary-wing, tilt-rotor,
and small fixed wing aircraft across the
DOD. The 21-month TD phase contracts
include both cost plus fixed-fee (CPFF)
and firm-fixed price (FFP) elements and
will utilize competitive prototyping.
The open-architecture, lightweight
(85-lb max.), laser-based countermea-
sure system is intended to protect
aircraft from all types of IR-guided mis-
siles, especially man-portable air de-
fense systems (MANPADS) such as the
SA-7, -14, -16, -18 and -24. An alterna-
tive to the larger and heavier LAIRCM
and ATIRCM systems, the baseline
CIRCM will be fully integrated with an
ASE suite that includes passive missile
warning, an improved countermeasures
dispenser, and advanced expendables.
Ultimately, CIRCM may have ad-
ditional capabilities as well, such as
dazzling to counter small arms fire,
and laser-based inter-helicopter com-
munication. As explained by Colonel
Leapheart, the actual capabilities devel-
opment document (CDD) for CIRCM wont
be due until the follow-on Milestone B,
Engineering Manufacturing Develop-
ment (EMD) phase. In the TD phase
well be looking at where the technology
is, the designs being brought forward by
the vendors, as well as opportunities to
provide some of these other capabilities.
Theyre not part of the current require-
ment, but we anticipate that, as we go
through the TD phase, well do some ex-
ploration on those capabilities and see
how feasible it is at that time to make
those a requirement for CIRCM maybe
not as an initial capability, but as part
of evolutionary growth.
Says Northrop Grummans Jeff Palom-
bo, CIRCM has the opportunity to do a
lot of things, but it all depends on what
the customer asks for. For us, the linch-
pin is our open-system architecture that
allows for the integration of systems
and equipment, not only from Northrop
Grumman, but others as well. For exam-
ple, Daylight Solutions (San Diego, CA)
is providing the laser, and Selex Galileo
(Lincoln, UK) is providing the jam head
for our CIRCM system. So, if the Gov-
ernment asks us to put different light
through the CIRCM jam head i.e., a po-
tential dazzle capability, or to provide
for laser communication we can enable
our system to do this.
As reported in the January 2012 JED,
the Army has said it wants to equip
1,075 Apache, Black Hawk, upgraded
Kiowa Warrior and other helicopters
with the CIRCM system, while the Navy
and Marine Corps are looking for a sys-
tem suitable for their SH-60, AH-1Z,
and other rotorcraft platforms. How-

FY19, the actual mix and number of
platforms receiving CIRCM could vary
dramatically.
INTEGRATED ASE THE SHAPE
OF THE FUTURE
As improvements to existing sys-
tems and the development and deploy-
ment of the next generation of ASE
equipment continues, the Services and
industry are already looking ahead to
the requirements, design and develop-
ment of the next generation capability.
Leapheart says the Army sees this as
a two-phase effort. The difference be-
tween the two really comes down to the
generation of aircraft youre talking
about what you can do on the current
generation of aircraft and what you can
do on the next, i.e., Joint Multi-Role
(JMR) rotorcraft, Joint Vertical Heavy
Lift and other new development efforts
like the Air Force-led Joint Future The-
ater Lift (JFTL) effort.
In September of last year, the Army
reorganized its PM-ASE project office
toward this objective, including the
creation of an Assistant Product Man-
ager for Integrated ASE to reach out to
and work with the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
and Army Research Lab (ARL) and
some other organizations that are do-
ing long term science and technology
(S&T) projects. Says Leapheart, The
purpose is to envision what an inte-
grated solution will look like mul-
tispectral sensor array, multispectral
countermeasures, and a processing
stack that glues it all together. We
want to build the foundation for that
now both from an S&T and from a pro-
grammatic perspective.
Leapheart warns that when youre
talking about integrated ASE, you have
to be careful about the definition of
integration youre using. From the
Armys perspective, Leapheart says this
involves three areas, the first being
sensor and threat correlation. Right
now there are instances that, because
of different sensor arrays onboard the
aircraft picking up the same threat
based on different phenomenology and
from different parts of the spectrum,
you might see multiple icons showing
up on the screen that all represent the
same threat. We have to figure out how
to correlate this sensor data to give the
aircrew a single icon on the screen for
that single threat.
Leapheart refers to the second piece
of integration as suite control. How do
we set up the processing that automati-
cally detects and determines the type
of threat and the proper countermea-
sure and deployment timeline? The
final piece is platform integration. For
the digital glass cockpits, this means
leveraging the existing multifunction
displays, while with non-digital cock-
pits, we want to, as a minimum, ensure
that any additional display integrates
into the existing capabilities as much
as possible.
Later this year, the Communica-
tions Electronics Research & Develop-
ment & Engineering Center (CERDEC)
Intelligence and Information Warfare
Directorate (I2WD) at Aberdeen Proving
Ground, MD, will be releasing a Broad
Area Announcement (BAA), inviting
industry to demonstrate integrated
ASE solutions as they are today. As de-
scribed by Leapheart, We want to bring
a number of them into the integrated
ASE lab that were building there and
do some side-by-side comparisons to see
what the state of the art really is out
there today. The objective is to hope-
fully build a strategy in an incremental
fashion that will shorten the timeline
for getting an integrated solution de-
ployed across the fleet and that we can
build on in future years.
The Navy is also heavily focused on
greater levels of integration, which
Overstreet says is going to happen
fairly quickly. The Navy has demonstra-
tions planned with the Marine Corps
for later this year. Its not just on
PowerPoint, were actually flying and
demonstrating concepts with the Ma-
rine Corps tactics squadrons and get-
ting input from them. Like the Army,
Overstreet recognizes the limitations
of current aircraft displays. A few
years ago, all you had was the AAR-47
and the APR-39, which you didnt really
need to worry about too much because
you were flying in a low-RF threat en-
vironment, he explains. Now, youre
getting to JTAS, or an AAR-47 with HFI,
together with the APR-39, and the last
thing you want is RF and IR threat indi-
cations stacked on top of each other. In
terms of integrating it all, the biggest
challenge is still getting the displays
to deliver accurate and timely informa-
tion to the aircrew so they can react
accordingly. As long as you get open
architecture processors, you should be
able to fuse data and put it anywhere,
but its a problem for the older cockpits.
But, for platforms that can handle this
capability, youre going to see integrat-
ed ASE fairly soon, he says.
All of this is, of course, being moni-
tored closely by industry. Bill Staib,
BAE Systems Product Line Director
for Threat Management Solutions, ob-
serves that the overriding mantra we
hear from both the Army and Navy is
that new sensors have to earn their
way onto the platform. You cant have
a dedicated sensor that does just one
thing; it has to provide multiple com-
petencies to the overall survivability
suite. Staib says one area BAE is look-
ing at in this regard is expanding the
traditional definition of ASE to include
not only offensive threats like missiles
and RPGs, but operational threats as

well for example helping the aircrew
operate in degraded visual environ-
ments, avoiding terrain obstacles, oth-
er aircraft etc., by better fusing data
from existing or different sensors for
some of these operational threats.
Northrop Grummans Palombo says
the task has to be undertaken in at
least two different bites, with the first
bite addressing the desire for integrat-
ed ASE on existing aircraft. The trick
is to be able to do this without add-
ing new hardware, weight and cost to
the platforms, and this is why weve
concentrated on a solution where the
APR-39 serves as an integrated suite
controller. Almost 100 percent of heli-
copters flying have an APR-39, and for
legacy aircraft with analog cockpits,
the APR-39 can provide this integrat-
ed capability and more. For example,
through the RAIL, weve demonstrated
that you can send information direct-
ly from an APR-39 to a targeting pod
where you can then designate that
threat as a target.
Going forward, Palombo agrees that,
as new platforms come along, with in-

tegrated multi-function sensors, there
will be a natural movement to true
integrated ASE. Pointing to Northrop
Grummans parallel work on open-ar-
chitecture digital cockpits and mission
computers, he observes that this is also
a valid approach in many cases to pro-
viding integrated ASE, which is why
weve been providing the source code
to our customers so they can be more
autonomous.
BAEs Staib says the question of
where the required processing power
will reside, whether in a mission com-
puter or ASE system, or somewhere
else, is exactly what the Army and Navy
are trying to figure out. Most of the
survivability systems already on the
platforms have some type of process-
ing capability. The question is how to
best utilize this capacity? Were doing
some preliminary work to identify what
types of architectures and standard in-
terfaces can be developed that can be
universally adopted and designed to,
and that will adhere to our vision of
sensor agnosticism. The Army is also
doing a good job of trying to lay the
groundwork by trying to establish
some standards within which industry
can operate.
At ATK, Kasting says an important
focus area is greater levels of integration
across the board, not only of those sys-
tems and sensors onboard the platforms
themselves, but as part of an integrated,
netted set of capabilities. Were invest-
ing in new sensor technologies beyond
two-color IR, to include acoustic, un-
cooled IR, and other technologies. The
more multi-spectral sensor technology
we bring to the table, the more accurate
the total data picture we can provide,
and the best answer to the requirement
we can deliver.
Whatever ultimate approach is
adopted, given the nature of the con-
tinually evolving threat, the simul-
taneous evolution of detection and
countermeasure technology, and the
overriding demand to immediately and
efficiently integrate and deliver criti-
cal threat information to the aircrew,
rotorcraft self-protection will continue
to be a challenging and complex work-
in-progress. a

TECHNOLOGY SURVEY
A SAMPLING OF DIGITAL RF MEMORIES
By Ollie Holt
J
ED last published a survey of digital RF memory
(DRFM) devices in February 2000. Since then,
many changes have taken place; size, weight
and power requirements have decreased, faster
analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-
to-analog converters (DACs) have been devel-
oped, and higher density Field Programmable Gate Arrays
(FPGAs), providing greater numbers of gates and more memory,
have become available. These improvements have led to sig-
nificant improvements in DRFM performance.
Why is the DRFM so important to EW? Before the DRFM be-
came available for use in EW systems, jamming threat radar
systems was performed either by receiving the threat radar
signal and storing the signal in a delay line for retransmission,
or by measuring the frequency and then recreating the signal
with an internal oscillator. Delay lines are bulky and have high
signal loss, making them undesirable, while the jammers re-
creation of the radar signal via an internal signal generator
was easily defeated in the threat radars signal processing.
The DFRM provides a higher performance method of captur-
ing and storing the radar signal for replay, when desired. Some
of the first DFRMs were single-bit devices that hard-limited
the radar signal, such that either a high or a low was recorded.
At the time, the technology was available to build high-speed
Flip Flops but not high-speed ADCs. These Flip Flops, when
clocked at a high speed, provided a method of sampling and stor-
ing the radars RF signal. These devices were effective, but they
had spurious signals, which could at times make them ineffec-
tive. With the development of ADCs with greater bit depth and
faster sampling speeds, the spurious signal components could be
reduced and thus provide much better deception performance.
The figure below shows a simple block diagram of an EW
jammer with a DRFM. The input signal is received and usually
amplified and mixed down to some baseband through a mixer.
This baseband is the center frequency (also called Intermedi-
ate Frequency or IF) as indicated in the survey responses. The
bandwidth defines the lower and upper limit of the input sig-
nal to the ADC. Typically, after the mixer is a Bandpass filter
with the center set at the IF, and the upper and lower limits set
by the bandwidth. The resulting signal is then sampled by the
ADC at a sample rate of at least twice the input bandwidth (the
Nyquist rate). The resolution, or bit-depth, defines the number
of bits in each analog-to-digital sample. From the ADC, the
samples are stored in a large memory device. The pulse width,
or memory-depth (depicted in microseconds in our survey), de-
fines the maximum memory size, which also defines how much
of the radar signal the system can store. (Sample rate x memo-
ry size defines the maximum pulse length the DRFM can store.)
After the signal has been copied and stored in the memo-
ry, countermeasures techniques can be applied to the signal.
To apply the techniques, all that is required is some complex
math, which can be implemented in hardware with the dif-
ferent gates within the FPGA. Time delays can be applied to
create false radar targets in other positions, masking the true
location of the target aircraft or ship. Correlated range (time)
and Doppler (velocity) techniques can be generated to simu-
late multiple targets in different positions, denying the threat
radar with useful targeting information. These modified radar
samples are then loaded into the DAC and clocked out at the
same rate that the radar created them. In some survey respons-
es, the digital-to-analog output (resolution output), has more
bits than the input sample. This just provides more fidelity
in the output waveform. After the signal has been converted
back into an analog signal, it is up-converted back to the same
frequency at which it was originally received, retaining the
entire coding original placed on the signal by the threat radar.
(Note; it may not be exactly the same frequency depending on
the Doppler applied for deception, but it will retain the same
radar coding and will thus be accepted by the radars signal
processing unit.) It is important that the same LO is used for
both the down and up conversion to retain coherency.
SURVEY RESPONSES
Only information supplied by the survey respondents was
used in this compilation. The number of responses was rela-
tively small compared to most other JED surveys. This is pri-
marily because the EW market for DRFM devices is limited to
radar and communications jammers. In addition, commercial
technology now enables many EW sys-
tems houses to manufacture their own
DRFMs. This survey only covers DRFM
manufacturers who sell their DRFMs as
stand-alone products.
NEXT SURVEY
JEDs next product survey, which will
run in the June issue, will cover spec-
trum analyzers.

By Kernan Chaisson
b o o k
revi ew
It is not often EW appears in anything
but technical or engineering books. For
electronic warfare to be the underpin-
ning of a novel is pretty much a first.
That is exactly what John Burwell Wil-
kes has done in Raventross, which he
released at last falls AOC Annual Con-
vention and Symposium. To avoid hav-
ing to issue a spoiler alert, let it suffice
to say that in the story some very in-
teresting things are done to, and with,
an EF-111A; and from a very interesting
place that most of us know, but none of
us are supposed to talk about. Suffice
it to say things begin when a mission is
undertaken in a way that would do any
techno-thriller proud. Romance, science
fiction, suspense; its all there. The air-
plane modification efforts are thought
provoking, with flying scenes that are
exciting and well-done. The missions are
fascinating, especially in consideration
of recent events.
While discussing Raventross with JED,
Wilkes explained that Austin Pepper
Thomas, AOC Past President (2003 to
2005), was the inspiration for the story.
AOC member Wilkes used Pepper as the
model for one of the main characters.
The story built on Peppers time with
the Navy Program Office in Bethpage,
NY, where he oversaw acceptance and
delivery of EF-111As to the Air Force.
Thomas was, Wilkes explained, Instru-
mental in making this work of fiction
into a believable and relevant story. In-
deed, Peppers personality is embodied
in one of the storys main characters,
Cool Hand Luke. Needless to say, as any
of us who know Pepper would suspect,
this character was quite interesting.
Well written and suspenseful, Raven-
tross is a fun romp of a techno-thriller
starring a famous EW asset. This is the
kind of story flyers and ground special-
ists alike can get into; combining the
mystery of Dan Brown (Deception Point
and Digital Fortress), with the technical
story at a
version of the famous
place that does not exist, Wilkes got
the description better than anyone so
far. The technical parts have a solid ba-
sis in reality, thanks to Pepper and Wil-
kes long association with aviation.
Raventross reflects this background
and experience, making it believable
and exciting. It is impossible to read this
book without feeling you are there with
the characters, living their excitement,
experiencing their fears, and enthralled
at their spine-tingling accomplishments.
The outcome leaves open the likelihood
of a follow-on story featuring the two
heroes, Wilkes told JED. After read-
ing Raventross, one cant help but want
more. Reviews by readers who purchased
the book from Amazon.com are over-
whelmingly positive, praising its spine-
tingling action and appeal to flyers and
non-flyers alike. It is great to know that
Wilkes, a developing star in the field of
military thrillers, is one of us. a
Raventross, ISBN 978-1-884886-96-6, was
published by Star Group International.
Copies are available at a special price

creativity of Dale Brown (Flight of the
Old Dog, Strike Force and the Dreamland
series). Wilkes is considering follow-on
stories, so Raventross could become an-
other Old Dog.
The Association of Old Crows plays a
special role in the naming of the air-
craft, as well as the home base for the
books action. In the story, both key
characters, and many of the others,
are noted for being AOC members. How
many books do we know where the main
characters are Crows? It is also the mark
of a skilled writer to produce a techno-
thriller that remains true to the under-
lying technology, but adds the thriller
part in a way that engages the reader
without being so far over the top as to
spoil the readers enjoyment.
Wilkes has an interesting and var-
ied background. An attorney, judge and
airline executive; he also commanded a
Marine artillery battalion; bringing all
of these pieces together to create an en-
tertaining story. Wilkes has flown with
the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) since 1993 and
served as wing commander of the Missis-
sippi CAP for four years. He was involved
in many rescue and counter-narcotics
missions in the Gulf region and flew sim-
ulated terrorist attacks to help officials
prepare for a G-8 Summit at a Georgia re-
sort island several years ago. These expe-
riences brought a special life to the story.
A Washington Post review of flyer-turned-
author Dale Brown applies. When a for-
mer pilot turns his hand to thrillers, you
can take their authenticity for granted.
Like Brown, Wilkes writing is good and
the dialogue, plots, and characters first-
class too good to be missed.
When it comes to the main location of
the story, Wilkes did an amazing job of
taking things he read and conversations
he had with people, not all of whom
knew what they were talking about,
to create a realistic home for the story.

The three important propagation loss models used to predict

n order to pass data from one location to another, the
digital data link must have adequate link margin. This
margin includes some elements that are clearly measur-
able (like link distance and system gains and losses).
It also includes some elements that are statistical (like
weather). The link availability is related to the link mar-
gin. The greater the margin, the higher the probability that
the link will be performing up to full specifications at any
given time.
The link, includ-
ing a few elements
that have not been
discussed in earlier
EW 101 columns, is
shown in Figure 1.

jamming situations, we have talked about transmitting an-
tenna gain toward the receiver and receiving antenna gain
toward the transmitter. This gain has been used in jamming
and intercept equations. In that case, we were typically talk-
ing about jamming or intercepting into or out of radar main
beam vs. side lobes. In this case, we are generally in the main
lobe of the link antennas, but away from the antenna bore-
sight by a small angle. The gain reduction relative to boresight
can be calculated with reasonable accuracy, but it is normally
more practical to get the gain patterns of the antennas from
the manufacturers and determine the gain reduction at the
angle from boresight equal to the specified maximum antenna
pointing error.
SENSITIVITY
The receiver system sensitivity, as discussed in the January
2007 EW 101 column is:
S (dBM) = KTB(dBM) + NF(dB) + RFSNR(dB)
Where: kTB is the internal noise in the
receiver, referenced to the receiver input.
Within the atmosphere, a common expres-
sion for kTB is -114 dBm + 10 log(bandwidth
/ 1 MHz). This assumes that the receiver is
at 290 degrees Kelvin.
NF, the System Noise Figure, is the amount
of noise above kTB added by the receiver
system, referred back to the receiver in-
put. RFSNR is the pre-detection signal
to noise ratio. In much literature, this is
called the CNR, which is the carrier to
noise ratio, to differentiate it from the
output signal to noise ratio which is called
SNR. Note that the signal power used in
the calculation is the total pre-detection
signal power, not just the carrier power
(which is why we use RFSNR in the EW
101 series).
In digital links, the RFSNR is related to the bit error rate
as a function of a ratio called E
b
/N
o
as shown in Figure 3.
There are two typical curves shown in this figure, however,
the actual curve for a specific link is determined by the digital
modulation used to carry the data.
E

VS RFSNR
E

is the energy per bit divided by the noise density (i.e.,
the noise per Hz of noise equivalent bandwidth).
E
B
= S/R
B
Where: S is the received signal power (P
R
in Figure 1 above).
R
b
is the bit rate (bits per second). Note that this refers to
the data bits rather than all of the bits sent (i.e., not the
synchronization and error correction bits)
N
O
= N/B
Where: N is the noise in the receiver (i.e., kTB
+ Noise figure);
B is the noise equivalent bandwidth which can
be approximated as equal to the symbol rate.
Thus, Eb/No is related to RFSNR by the
equation:
EB/NO = SB / NR
B
In dB form, this equation is:
EB/NO (dB) = RFSNR (dB) + [B/R
B
] (dB)
WHATS NEXT
Next month, we will finish our discus-
sion of link margin and talk about the tech-
nical considerations related to the other link
specifications in Table 1. For your comments

ness Integration Conference, May 1-2 in Camden, NJ.
You are invited to share expertise that offers a solution to
the following challenges:
1. EMS-Enabled Life Cycle Management Solutions
2. Infrastructure Support to EMS Solutions
3. How Can ISR Information Be Better Shared Across Gov-
ernment, Industry and Research Partners?
4. Modeling and Simulation Capabilities for EMS Warriors
5. Asymmetric Warfare Solutions - EMS Denied
Environment
Abstracts are due by April 2. For more information and
the full submission details see ads in this issue or visit
www.crows.org.
AOC will also host the EMS Life Cycle Management confer-
ence in Dahlgren, VA, July 17-19. In the wake of constrained
DOD budgets, EW combat systems must develop strategies of
integration and cost-effective methods for sustainment to
remain in operational use by the warfighter.
For systems life-cycle management to be most efficient,
it is vital for the armed forces to collaborate to meet the
new fiscal restraints by producing more commonality in EW
combat systems. The viewpoints presented at this confer-
ence are essential for excelling in a challenging fiscal envi-
ronment, and helping EW missions contribute effectively to
our critical National defense mission.
AOC seeks papers addressing the issues of Combat Sys-
tems Integration and Life Cycle Cost and Performance Im-
provements and Combat System Component Integration.
Abstracts are due by June 4. For more information and

ISRAEL National Electronic Warfare
Research and Simulation Center
(NEWRSC)
The NEWRSC was established in 1973,
shortly before the Yom-Kippur war, and
was almost immediately tasked with
the exploitation of the formidable SA-6
Surface to Air Missile System and with
the development of EW techniques
against this relatively unknown threat.
This research, as well as the research
of other adversary systems, led in the
following years to the development of
unique EW capabilities which contributed
to the unprecedented operational
successes of the air campaign of the 1982
Lebanon war.
Since that time, the NEWRSC has been
involved in almost every aspect of Israeli
Electronic and Information Warfare. It
works in close cooperation with all the
forces of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)
Air, Land, Sea and C4I. This cooperation
involves daily interaction with technical,
intelligence and operational military
branches. The threat exploitation efforts
and EW research are related to a wide
spectrum of applications SAM, AAM,
ASM, ATGM, C4I, and deal with both RF
and EO/IR systems.
The NEWRSC also works closely with
the Israel Ministry of Defense (IMOD) and
specifically the Directorate for Defense
Research and Development (DDRD). This
work is aimed at the development and
evaluation of new conceptual designs of
EW/IW.
Although the NEWRSC is part of
RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems
LTD it is designated as a national
center of excellence and is committed
to objective evaluation and support of
system development efforts for all of
the defense industry. Unique facilities,
including HIL simulators, field test
equipment and advanced laboratories,
were developed and are used to support
many EW projects. The world renowned
achievements of the Israeli EW industry
can be credited, to a large extent, to
NEWRSC support.

1. Combat Systems Integration and Life Cycle Cost and Performance Improvements
How do the different services conduct EW sustainment and what processes and capabilities would they like to offer for Service-wide consideration?
What can new programs do better to design-in reduced sustainment costs and therefore reduce the life cycle expense of military systems?
What does Defense Acquisition University (DAU) train and offer as solutions to reduce life cycle cost of military systems? What training
initiatives are supported by DAU to improve tech insertion and cost reduction into legacy systems? What DAU insights could support the unique
aspects of EW legacy systems which must be not only sustained but constantly improved to counter new threats regardless of their age?
What are the three or four main things the DOD and industry can do to reduce EW system sustainment?
Are there DOD scal policies, sustainment policies, or other policies that should be created, modied, or deleted to permit faster legacy system
performance enhancement or reduced sustainment costs?
2. Combat System Component Integration
How can EW systems be developed to make our Naval Combat systems more affordable and make it easier to vertically integrate new capabilities?
How can the Navy further decouple combat system development from platform development while continuing to recognize the need for
platform specic requirements?
How can open architecture assist in the affordable integration of counter-strike elements across the ship and the battle group?
How can the Navy most effectively perform testing and evolution on future integrated battleforce requirements such as Advanced Offboard EW
and EW Battle Management?
Abstracts should be limited to one page of unclassied text. Deadline for abstracts is June 4, 2012.
Call for Papers: Combat Systems Integration and Life
Cycle Cost and Performance Improvements Conference
In the wake of constrained Department of Defense (DOD) budgets, Electronic Warfare

receiver distortion, processes for real-
time specific emitter tracking (SET)
and multi-technique specific emitter
identification (SEI), and for intercepting
and characterizing LPI and wideband
signals.
The company provided integration and
test support for a USAF ISR platform.
For the US Army, a real-time specific

Tactical Technologies has spent more
than10 years developing a family of
Tactical Engagement Simulation Software
(TESS) products. TESS is designed
as commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)
software uniquely targeted at working on
electronic attack and protection issues
related to radar and infrared guided
weapons.
TESS products are turnkey integrated
engagement simulations, which support
surface-to-air, air-to-air, anti-ship and
anti-tank engagements and perform
target and threat-centric analysis
for the user. They describe the threat,
target, environment and geometry of
an electronic combat engagement and
analyze the system interactions and end-
game results that occur.
In analytical applications TESS
uses Simulinks scopes to help the
user analyze the causal behavior
that occurs between systems as they
interact throughout an engagement
while also providing end-game metrics
like miss-distance and probability of
kill. In training and hardware-in-the-
loop requirements, TESS can be easily
compiled to provide real-time simulation
performance using exactly the same
system models and infrastructure.
High-fidelity physics-based system
models built in MATLAB & Simulink and
available complete with documented
source code allow the user to validate or
modify TESS models, while being first
principles-based and traceable, making
them suitable for operational support,
intelligence, research and engineering
and realistic training applications.
