Abstract
Describes a computer software package that was developed for predicting the error rate of a general HF communication system in a noisy and hostile environment. The original software was designed to facilitate the establishment of a new STANAG (Standard NATO Agreement) for radio communications in the HF band. The program estimates the bit error rate for a variety of system configurations, operational parameters, jammer characteristics and ground wave propagation media, as selected by the user. The package includes M-FSK and PSK (M = 2, 4, 8) signals, CCIR background noise and measured European interference environments. Frequency hopping can be used by the transmitter to evade jamming. The jammer may, in turn, use either follower or partial-band jamming signals to counter the evasion. Estimation of error rate is based on analytical solutions rather than simulations. TRUNCATED
