This thesis presents a comparison of the effectiveness of 'smart noise' jamming waveforms against advanced threat radars, which are generated using either Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) or Digital RF Memory (DRFM) based support jamming. The challenge lies in the fact the modern radar employs advanced waveforms, ultralow sidelobe antennas, coherent sidelobe cancelers, and sidelobe blankers to inhibit signals entering through its sidelobes. This thesis compares the effectiveness of using DDS versus DRFM techniques to meet this challenge. In particular, the effect of mismatched frequency on the DDS jamming waveform is described, as is the effect of quantization and multi-signal storage in the DRFM. A quantitative comparison of these jamming techniques against the AN/TPS-70 surveillance radar is made
