The goal of this work to quantify the benefits
integrating a shipboard radar system with the ship's
electronic warfare (EW) system terms of increased
effectiveness of chaff decoys against sea skimmimg missiles.
Present shipboard EW and radar systems have been developed
independently because of the functions or tasks they
serve. By interfacing the two systems, chaff could now be
launched based on radar data as well as based on Electronic
Support Measures (ESM) data, resulting in increased ship
This project and report first addresses a need (section
II) for a more adequate defense system against sea skimming
missiles. Interfacing the EW and radar systems is suggested
as a way to increase ship survivability. A dynamic, closed
loop software model which includes the ship, missile, chaff,
radar, and ESM sensors was developed to test this hypothesis.
A description of this model is presented in section III.
Results of the analysis is presented in section IV and
concluding remarks are in section V.
