Abstract : The purpose of this survey is to identify optimum receiver and signal discrimination technology that will enable an integrated airborne EW system to perform its primary functions of threat warning, threat analysis, and ECM control against the anticipated enemy microwave threat of the 1975-80 time period. A specialized multibeam antenna, the MAAS (Multiple Array Avionics System) is to be employed, and operation in a dense multiple-signal environment is a basic requirement. This report describes the results obtained during Phase I of the survey.
