Abstract:

Use of an interferometer along with a host radar is proposed for simultaneously achieving coherent reference denial and embedded communications. To prevent self-jamming, spatial orthogonality is achieved between the interferometer antenna pattern and main beam of the host radar. Costas and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing OFDM signals are suggested for the host radar and interferometer, respectively. Effectiveness of the interferometer masking signal on a non-cooperative bistatic radar is discussed.
