AOC GSC Lunch and Learn Febuary 2016 Event

Field Based Risk Reduction

Presenter: Dr. Richard H. Wittstruck
Associate Director, Field Based Experimentation & Integration
US Army, CERDEC

This presentation will discuss the revitalization of C4ISR/CEMA field experimentation and integration to the acquisition and operations communities. Fifteen years of war has led to a streamlined process that brought emerging technologies from the laboratory environment directly to operations theaters with scant characterization and field experimentation. While necessary to meet urgent wartime operations needs, a post conflict transition period now demands rigorous, disciplined and operations relevant field experimentation and integration to ensure Army, joint and coalition capability maturity & interoperability in a limited resources environment.

Coexistence in LTE & Radars
Presenter:
Dr. Steffen Heuel – Rohde & Schwarz


This presentation will discuss the coexistence between S-Band radars and the commercial LTE mobiles operating in E-UTRA Band 7 from where considerations to the future LTE technology by the DoD in close proximity to radars can be drawn. Coexistence issues examined by looking at measurement data gathered at a major international airport will be presented. Key performance indicators such as data throughput or Block Error Rate of the mobile LTE device and the probability of detection of security relevant radars have been measured and evaluated with the goal how to recognize and address the problems they cause.

“Digital Radio Frequency Memories in Electronic Warfare”
Presenters:
Mr. Dave Adamy 
Rohde & Schwarz

This is a block-diagram level short course on digital radio frequency memories (DRFMs). It includes discussion of the basic DRFM function and key technology issues. The main thrust of the course is the role of DRFMs in Electronic Warfare, including how DRFMs enable the jamming of important types of modern RADARs -- particularly those with chirp, Barker code, detailed radar cross section analysis capabilities and various other electronic protection capabilities. Also covered will be the application of DRFMs in radar decoys. Finally, circuitry and operational considerations that enhance DRFM capabilities will be discussed.
