Abstract:

This work produced a simulation capable of giving the effectiveness of chaff used in the self-protective mode. Signal processing techniques were studied in chaff discrimination in crucial missile conditions. A missile-ship- chaff model will be constructed to provide the optimum confusion of the missile. The radar included in this simulation is a tracking radar with conical-scan modulation. Results of simulation runs illustrate the effects of varying chaff radar cross section when ship and chaff are in the same resolution cell.
