dc.description.abstractIn this thesis, effort is made to incorporate the computer program, Improved Many(Jammers)-on-Many(Radars) (IMOM), into radar and electronic warfare curricula at the Naval Postgraduate School. The IMOM program is used operationally by the U.S. Air Force for electronic combat mission planning. IMOM allows the user to evaluate electronic combat effects through computer color graphics display of the electronic order of battle including terrain effects. This same program used in an academic role, provides students in radar and electronic warfare a tool for understanding radar principles, jamming principles, and the physical interaction between the two. The objective is to provide a visible link between radar range theory presented in coursework and the two-dimensional electronic combat scenarios presented by IMOM. This is done by plotting the theoretical results for radar signal return, jammer return, and the jamming to signal ratio for both self protection and stand-off jammers. A MATLAB program is used to generate plots of the radar and jamming equations and to validate the IMOM algorithm against the equations used at NPS. The effect of radar parameter changes on the system is clearly displayed, both on the graphical MATLAB output and the IMOM graphics display, therefore enhancing the student's understanding of radar and jamming principles.en_US
