Radio-controlled improvised explosive devices (RCIEDs) have been a major weapon of choice by the insurgents in Operation Iraqi Freedom since 2003. One effective way to prevent an RCIED attack is to use electronic jamming devices to interfere with the communication between the trigger and the bomb itself. Due to power constraints and other considerations, however, a jammer usually cannot jam all triggers simultaneously. In this paper, we develop game-theoretic models to study both active jamming and reactive jamming. For active jamming, we compute the optimal mixed strategy by linear programming; for reactive jamming, we use an iterative method. Finally, we demonstrate the applications of our models with numerical experiments.

The signal is subject to pulsednoise jamming, when either the desired signal alone or the desired signal and the jamming signal are subject to Nakagami fading. As expected, the implementation of ...
