Abstract
An adaptive noncoherent processor (ANCP) system, intended as an ECCM for multi-channel (e.g., frequency agile) radars operating in a jamming environment, is described. The ANCP system operates by estimating the noise power in each active channel of the radar, adaptively adjusting the channel gain, and then noncoherently combining the outputs of the channels before executing a single target present/not-present threshold detection.
