Abstract

Burn-through range was defined as the range to the target at which the radar has adequate signal quality to track the target while Electronic Counter-Counter Measure (ECCM) was defined as military action involving the use of equipment techniques to prevent or to deny the hostile use of the electromagnetic spectrum. The objectives of this project is to determine the burn-through range due to radar echo and jammer signal received at radar antenna and the methods known as ECCM that can be applied by a radar in order to improve its performance. In order to understand the overall project, it will begin with an explaination on theory and literature review based on radar and electronic warfare concept. Clarification will focus on the principles of basic communication system, basic radar and electronic warfare system and the pass discussion related to this project based on author perspectives. The next stage is to determine the radar and jammer parameters based on hardware setup and experimentally performed at Electronic Warfare Training Centre Laboratory, Sungai Buloh Selangor. Subsequently based on the understanding concept performed at the laboratory, several typical values for both parameters was obtained from internet, radar and electronic warfare books and specified documents such as Jane?s collection based on their application in current modern warfare. Finally, the determination of burn-through range was performed by an analysis their parameters towards test equipment result and calculating approach for the information obtained from the specified sources. To gives an appropriate presentation, the results was simulate thru Microsoft Excel in order to depict it in graph manner and by referring to a burn-through range sketch, several methods can be applied by a radar in order to improve its performance. A proposal methods can be divided into two parts which is firstly, by shifting the burn-through range towards jammer thru burn-through range parameters adjustment and secondly, by preventing the jammer effectiveness towards radar performance.
