Abstract : This note outlines the proposed design and development of the Advanced Communication ESM System (ACES) testbed in the Communication Electronic Warfare (CEW) Section at DREO. The purpose of this testbed is to develop a high Probability of Intercept (POI) ESM system for use against various conventional and exotic HF and VHF communications signals. This work is being carried out in support of the army (D-Sigs-EM2) under Task 041XG. The ACES testbed will use wideband digital receivers and advanced digital signal processors to provide high POI, real-time signal detection and identification, high resolution DF, data fusion, analysis, and C3I functions. The aim is to produce a complete ESM system suitable for field trials in a real signal environment by March 1994.
