Rohde & Schwarz Registration Link



To those who previously registered for this event using the website: We have regrettably had an issue with the registration process implemented through the website.  If you have already registered for this event, please re-register via the Rohde & Schwarz website link above.  Sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

To accommodate those who don't receive word that they need to re-register via Rohde & Schwarz prior to the event, we will be offering morning-of registration.  As long as you have submitted your security clearance, you will be able to attend the event after completing the on-site registration process.  Please make every attempt to register using the Rohde & Schwarz page prior to the event to minimize registration lines the day of the event.


Course Description

Stealth or low-probability-of-intercept (LPI) emitters have performance characteristics that make them nearly undetectable with modern digital intercept receivers.

This one-day course starts by reviewing the important LPI modulation schemes. We will examine the modern digital (non-cooperative) intercept receiver signal processing strategies necessary to detect the LPI threat. To increase the processing gain of the receiver, special signal processing methods are presented and includes the pseudo Wigner-Ville distribution, quadrature mirror filter bank trees, and cyclostationary modeling for spectral correlation density estimation.

Example calculations are shown in the course to demonstrate the nature of the time-frequency and bi-frequency signal planes and methods to extract the emitter signal parameters. New detection results are then derived for LPI signaling modulation schemes in order to illustrate the parameter extraction techniques. New multiple signal results are presented. Autonomous emitter classification architectures and modulation extraction algorithms are also examined.
