Abstract : This technical report describes analyses and techniques used in the design and evaluation of advanced decoy concepts. The work described addresses both the design of specific penetration aid elements and the formulation of techniques for their evaluation. The three major technical areas covered in this report are: Investigation of a penetration aid technique that degrades the measurement capability of the radar sensor, The design of a computer program to solve the decoy design problem with flexibility in the selection of optimization criteria and constraints, and Studies of the use of certain discrimination techniques for a hard point defense system. This appendix to this report contains detailed description of the optimum decoy design program. (Author)
