Abstract
This thesis documents the use of the SRC-6 Reconfigurable Computer for use in analyzing low probability of intercept (LPI) signals using the Choi-Williams distribution. The SRC-6 is a reconfigurable computer manufactured by SRC Computers, Inc. which allows the user to tailor both the software and the hardware to a specific task. This increases the speed at which the task can be accomplished making it useful for applications in electronic intelligence (ELINT). The Choi-Williams distribution is a mathematical technique that was first created using MATLAB and then converted to C code for use on the SRC-6. The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using a reconfigurable computer for ELINT applications and the timely detection and classification of LPI signals. This thesis is part of a larger study to use reconfigurable computers for the autonomous detection and classification of LPI signals.
