This paper describes a proof-of-principle test-bed that is being developed to demonstrate the Advanced Multifunction Radio Frequency Concept, a wide-band generic active array antenna architecture that has the ability to transmit and receive multiple simultaneous independent beams for radar, EW, and communication functions.
Fiber-optic remoting of an ultrahigh dynamic range radar
We demonstrate, for the first time, fiber-optic remoting of an X-band radar with ultrahigh dynamic range, and show that photonic components can meet the stringent phase noise requirements for…
Integrated Topside (InTop) Joint Navy - Industry Open Architecture Study
Abstract : Integrated Topside (InTop) is an Innovative Naval Prototype (INP) program established by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop an integrated, multifunctional system of electronic…
The Advanced Multifunction RF Concept (AMRFC) Test Bed
In this program, hardware and software that emulate Emission Control, Normal, and Combat scenarios have been successfully combined in an active Proof of Principle demonstration at NRL's Chesapeake Bay Detachment (CBD).
Integrated Topside - integration of narrowband and wideband array antennas for shipboard communications
The integration of the two arrays provides redundancy, multipath mitigation, frequency diversity, the potential to employ spatial separation to achieve the desired number of links within the existing frequency constraints, and the ability to allocate receive assets to enhance the frequency management of the ship to prevent interference and contention.

In this article, we have shown the development of a unique design concept in which a single planar array antenna consisting of N × M elements on a mobile earth station, such as a navy ship, will…
An Azimuth Measurement Algorithm for Mechanically Rotating Pulse Doppler Radars.
Abstract : For a mechanically rotating pulse Doppler radar having only a single main beam, an algorithm is presented that obtains an estimate of a target's azimuth angle using echo data obtained over…
Clutter filtering and processing techniques for EMI detection and angle measurement in pulse Doppler radars
A filtering methodology is presented for optimally suppressing the cluttercontained in the received CDIs, thereby revealing EMI pulses contained in the data as well as the antenna scan modulation on the target echo.
