Abstract:

This report is a review of the development testing of mission-critical software for the U.S. Army Prophet Engineering and Manufacturing Development EMD System and the Prophet Block I System. Prophet is a Division-Level ground based electronic surveillance system, which provides protection in a direct support role to the maneuver brigade either stationary, or while on the move. The system monitors and exploits signals of interest and determines the area of signal origin by providing direction finding and line-of-bearing in the frequency range of 20 Megahertz to 2000 Megahertz. Prophet is operated in either the dismounted or mounted mode. In the dismounted mode Prophet is man-packed with a portable antenna. In the mounted mode Prophet is installed in an equipment enclosure carried on a High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle with the antennas attached to a retractable mast.
