This thesis examines the feasibility of using an expert system to solve the threat identification problem in the radar signal environment. Such systems can be used to support the Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO) in decision- making. We have analyzed the expertise required in electronic warfare (EW) and have identified key signal parameters. In addition, we have devised a method called function recognition to facilitate radar signal analysis. A rule-based prototype system possessing EW knowledge has been designed and developed for a micro-computer system using the expert system shell CLIPS. The system is able to receive preprocessed sensor inputs, determine the radar signals that are present, perform threat target identification, and suggest the best possible electronic counter measures. The behavior of the system is demonstrated using several hypothetical EW scenarios. We believe that such a system can be incorporated as an electronic warfare (EW) subsystem.
