Abstract:

The Distributed Electronic Warfare Situation Awareness and Response Test Bed was designed to rapidly develop and evaluate distributed Electronic Warfare concepts through a networked set of heterogeneous, relatively unsophisticated sensors and effectors deployed on ground based or aerial platforms to detect, identify, locate, track or suppress stationary or slow moving surface based RF emitting targets. In the current test bed, little of the control or data processing occurs at the ground based or airborne nodes. This document evaluates a number of options for de-centralising the control functions and distributing the data processing from the ground station to the ground based or airborne nodes.
