Abstract
A prominent trend in current radar development is in Low Probability of Detection (LPD) technology for both military and civilian applications. Based on relative maximum detection ranges versus enemy sensors, LPD radars attempt to establish dominance in the situational awareness domain, primarily through emission control and data processing. Taking an electronic attack rather than an electronic support perspective, this document provides an alternative view to the nature of LPD radar and contains an analysis of fourteen enabling technologies. The concept of an LPD zone is introduced, and considerations for the jamming of LPD radars, however inelegantly, are described.
