Registration and Security
To attend this event please complete both of the following two steps.
STEP 1: SUBMIT YOUR CLEARANCE
This event will be held at the SECRET level, and requires NSWCDD base access. Classified visitor requests MUST be received NO LATER THAN Friday, February 9th, or you will not be allowed to attend the event.
All visitors are required to send clearances through JPAS. Using the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS), send clearances to:
SMO Code: 001785
POC: Janet Markwith

NOTICE OF REGISTRATION PROCESS ISSUES
To those who previously registered for this event using the crows.org website: We have regrettably had an issue with the registration process implemented through the crows.org 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.
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.

Dr. Phillip Pace is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). He earned his Ph.D. in 1990 from University of Cincinnati after receiving his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Ohio University - all in electrical and computer engineering. Dr. Pace has several years of industry experience on Radar Systems both at General Dynamics and Hughes Aircraft Company. At NPS Center for Joint Services Electronic Warfare (CJSEW) he is the ECE Associate Chair-Research. He is the Associate Editor, IEEE Trans. on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, and an IEEE Fellow. He is the author of three textbooks, listed on six patents, has published dozens of technical articles and is an award winning, life-time member, of the AOC.
