Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electronic warfare (EW) refers to any action involving the use of the electromagnetic spectrum or directed energy to sense, process, command, and control the spectrum. The proliferation of emerging EW technology (e.g., network jamming, superb anti-jamming communications, and cooperative engagement technologies) enables global-scale scenarios and demands new and effective actions over the electromagnetic spectrum and networks. Subsequently, there are many results on cross-layer investigations, interdisciplinary collaborations, and various levels of modeling with simulations.

The aim of this Special Issue is to invite the recent advances and inherent challenges in EW systems, networks and scenarios, as well as to exploit the new results and expand its state of the art.

We expect that the Special Issue will trigger further related research and technology improvements, not only in this important field, but also in other areas, including modeling and simulations (M&S) in military communications and covert communications. Potential topics of the Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

 - emerging surveillance techniques using active and passive sensing

 - energy harvesting sensors for reconnaissance and surveillance

 - M&S in EW for tactical/long-range communications and networks

 - secure and robust communications in the presence of passive and active attacks

 - M&S of counter measures against advanced networked and agile systems

 - M&S of distributed EW systems providing asymmetric capabilities

 - emerging systems concepts and advanced technologies of EW

 - innovative concepts of physical and network solutions for EW

 - M&S of global, multi-dimensional distributed EW systems

 - defense engineering of time, frequency, and position information.

Most of the earlier tracking and network sorting approaches with a high sampling rate for frequency hopping (FH) signals did not adapt to the wideband system during their implementation, whereas the sub-Nyquist based algorithms cannot satisfy the real-time requirement for dealing with the rapid change of sparsity. It is important to improve the compressed sensing (CS) methods for tracking and sorting wideband FH signals. In this paper, a dynamic programming modulated wideband converters (MWC) scheme is proposed. First, considering the wide gap of FH signals, an improved power estimation method is proposed to track the support set in the time domain. Second, to sort multiple signals more effectively, a feedback control algorithm based on dynamic programming is proposed. In the proposed method, the total sampling rate is decreased significantly, and multiple FH signals are separated rapidly without recovery based on the results of tracking and comparative power. Simulations show that the proposed method can track and sort FH signals efficiently and more practically than previous methods. Full article
