How can a Cognitive Radar Mask its Cognition?

  title={How can a Cognitive Radar Mask its Cognition?},
  author={Kunal Pattanayak and Vikram Krishnamurthy and Christopher Berry},
We study how a cognitive radar can mask (hide) its cognitive ability from an adversarial jamming device. Specifically, if the radar optimally adapts its waveform based on adversarial target maneuvers (probes), how should the radar choose its waveform parameters (response) so that its utility function cannot be recovered by the adversary. This paper abstracts the radar’s cognition masking problem in terms of the spectra (eigenvalues) of the state and observation noise covariance matrices, and…

Meta-Cognition. An Inverse-Inverse Reinforcement Learning Approach for Cognitive Radars
This paper abstracts the radar’s meta-cognition problem in terms of the spectra (eigenvalues) of the state and observation noise covariance matrices, and embeds the algebraic Riccati equation into an economics-based utility maximization setup.
Inverse-Inverse Reinforcement Learning. How to Hide Strategy from an Adversarial Inverse Reinforcement Learner
—Inverse reinforcement learning (IRL) deals with estimating an agent’s utility function from its actions. In this paper, we consider how an agent can hide its strategy and mitigate an adversarial IRL


Principal Agent Problem as a Principled Approach to Electronic Counter-Countermeasures in Radar
Electronic countermeasures (ECM) against a radar are actions taken by an adversarial jammer to mitigate the effective utilization of the electromagnetic spectrum by the radar. On the other hand,

Hybrid Phased-MIMO Radar: A Novel Approach With Optimal Performance Under Electronic Countermeasures
This letter presents a novel technique for optimizing the performance of a phased-multi-in multi-out (MIMO) radar in the presence of strong jamming effects that overcomes the noise jamming but also counters the effects of deception jamming.
Low probability of intercept-based distributed MIMO radar waveform design against barrage jamming in signal-dependent clutter and coloured noise
It is illustrated that to minimise the total transmission power, the optimal waveform should match with the target, clutter, jamming and coloured noise, and demonstrated that the LPI performance of the MIMO radar system can be significantly improved by employing the proposed radar waveform design scheme.
Optimal coordination method of opportunistic array radars for multi‐target‐tracking‐based radio frequency stealth in clutter
A novel coordination method of opportunistic array radars in the network for target tracking in clutter that has excellent tracking accuracy in clutter but also saves much more radiated power comparing with other methods.

A moving-target tracking approach to achieve cognitive radio frequency stealth using an FDA antenna for surveillance applications using a traditional high-gain phased-array antenna beam with spoiled frequency increments is proposed.
Langevin Dynamics for Inverse Reinforcement Learning of Stochastic Gradient Algorithms
A generalized Langevin dynamics algorithm to estimate the reward function ofverse reinforcement learning is presented; specifically, the resulting Langevin algorithm asymptotically generates samples from the distribution proportional to $\exp(R(\theta)$).
Apprenticeship learning via inverse reinforcement learning
This work thinks of the expert as trying to maximize a reward function that is expressible as a linear combination of known features, and gives an algorithm for learning the task demonstrated by the expert, based on using "inverse reinforcement learning" to try to recover the unknown reward function.
