Examples of E-field Capabilities
These include, but are not limited to:
Development, implementation, assessment and/or recommendation of computer simulation models allowing prediction of:
· Link performance and system coverage for fading, interference limited channels over arbitrary terrain types and surface covers, with or without ducting and other atmospheric effects.
· Interference effects by multiple co-channel emitters in fading environments.
· Channel capacity of systems constrained by transmitter and receiver intermodulation products resulting from the close proximity of system elements.
· Propagation & performance models and terrain database requirements of Automated Spectrum Management and Electronic Warfare Analysis Systems for both analog and digital data.
· Conventional, agile or wideband radar and communications intercept/DF/countermeasures system performance in realistic tactical or strategic environments
· Satellite and airborne synthetic aperture radar performance.
· Relative performance of systems having different operating parameters such as frequency, location and antenna height / directivity.
Technical literature searches and subsequent system performance analyses in terms of parameters such as:
· Delay-spread, spatial correlation and signal fading distributions.
· Rainfall and refractivity data for any part of the world.
· Terrain radio-frequency reflectivity measurements as a function of surface type.
Design, implementation and evaluation of field trial measurement programs to validate system performance models for:
· Transmitter/Sensor coverage
· Interference probabilities
· Intercept range
· Detection probabilities
· Direction-Finding accuracy
· Countermeasures performance
Delivery of customized training courses in:
· Radio-wave propagation and system performance prediction
· Single-site location techniques
· Super-resolution direction-finding techniques.
Independent evaluation of implementation options and contractor proposals for systems whose performance depends upon an in-depth understanding of the effects of the propagation environment.
