Abstract:

Raytheon is supporting several Navy advanced technology programs. One of the largest to date is the Advanced Multifunction RF Concept AMRFC contracts sponsored by the Office of Naval Research ONR. The motivation for AMRFC is to reduce the surface combatant topside crowding and resulting radar cross section RCS by minimizing the number of apertures required to support radar, communications, and electronic warfare EW mission needs. AMRFC is an ONR Science and Technology ST Program part of the Platform Protection Future Naval Capabilities focused on a future system concept for naval warfare. The AMRFC program endeavors to prove the efficacy of an integrated RF system with minimal apertures and associated electronics to demonstrate radar, communication, and EW capabilities. The goal of the AMRFC program was to demonstrate capability of performing multiple, simultaneous RF functions, including radar, communications and electronic warfare, utilizing a common set of apertures and dynamically reconfigurable hardware. This capability will potentially enhance shipboard electronic warfare and communication capabilities while also reducing the electromagnetic signatures compared to existing ships with their large number of topside apertures.
