An investigation of jamming techniques through a radar receiver simulation

Kırkpantur-Çadallı, Atiye Aslı
In this study, various jamming techniques and their effects on detection and tracking performance have been investigated through a radar receiver simulation that models a search radar for target acquisition and single-target tracking radar during track operation. The radar is modeled as looking at airborne targets, and hence clutter is not considered. Customized algorithms have been developed for the detection of target azimuth angle, range and Doppler velocity within the modeled geometry and chosen radar parameters. The effects of varying parameters like jamming-to-signal ratio (JSR) and jamming signal`s Doppler shift have been examined in the analysis of jamming effectiveness.


Range resolution improvement of fmcw radars
Kurt, Sinan; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar has wide application areas in both civil and military use. The range resolution is a critical concept for these FMCW radars as for the other radar types. There are theoretical restrictions in the range resolution. In addition, the non-ideal properties of the modules used in the systems negatively affects the range resolution. The transmitter leakage, non-linear frequency sweep, FM to AM distortion and measurement errors are some of the critical non-ideal prop...
Path extraction of low SNR dim targets from grayscale 2-D image sequences
Ergüven, Sait; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, an algorithm for visual detecting and tracking of very low SNR targets, i.e. dim targets, is developed. Image processing of single frame in time cannot be used for this aim due to the closeness of intensity spectrums of the background and target. Therefore; change detection of super pixels, a group of pixels that has sufficient statistics for likelihood ratio testing, is proposed. Super pixels that are determined as transition points are signed on a binary difference matrix and grouped by 4-...
Radar range-doppler imaging using joint time-frequency techniques
Akhanlı, Deniz; Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar coherently processes the return signal from the target in order to construct the image of the target. The conventional methodology used for obtaining the image is the Fourier transform which is not capable of suppressing the Doppler change in the return signal. As a result, Range-Doppler image is degraded. A proper time-frequency transform suppresses the degradation due to time varying Doppler shift. In this thesis, high resolution joint-time frequency transformations that c...
Successive target cancelation for radar waveform sidelobe reduction
Haliloğlu, Onur; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Many radars suffer from masking of weaker targets by stronger ones due to range sidelobes of pulse compression codes. We propose a method to prevent this by successively detecting targets and canceling their effects. Performance of the proposed method will be investigated in various scenarios with regard to existence of noise, targets, and the Doppler effect.
A new approach for the assessment of hf channel availability under ionospheric disturbances
Sarı, Murat Özgür; Tulunay, Ersin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
High Frequency (3-30 MHz) (HF) Ionospheric Channel is used for military, civilian and amateur communications. By using Ionosphere, communication for distances beyond the line of sight is achieved. The main advantage of this type of communication is that it does not to require a satellite to communicate with a point beyond the line of sight. Actually the Ionosphere is used instead of a satellite. To use Ionosphere but not a satellite means independent communication for a country. The disadvantage of HF Ionos...
