Example text

Examples of the tactical exploitation of I 0 include the following: The blind firing against a target with targeting coordinates provided by the information system; A soldier in the desert or in a jungle, blind until a few years ago, can have now in their portable computer the complete picture of the local war theatre: their position, the position of the enemy echelons, and the targets, even if they do not have any special sensor; A ship in the middle of the ocean can receive via satellite communication the complete surrounding situation (wide area picture) even in a complete silent operation mode.

In this case, passive electro-optic sensors offer a solution. This kind of equipment is in fact capable of detecting either the aerodynamic heating or the infrared radiation produced by the booster at the time of launching. The problem with these sensors is that the background infrared radiation usually gives a much stronger signal than the signal produced by the threat to be intercepted. Systems that detect the infrared radiation emitted at launch are distinct from those that detect aerodynamic heating.

T o this end a new technology has been developed in recent years for the study of materials and structural geometries capable of minimizing target RCS. The techniques are usually called stealth techniques. " Noise Jammers A noise jammer generates signals of the same frequency as an opponent's radar. 25 Chaff consisting of clouds of extremely light, conductive metal foil strip dipoles is used to create areas in which radar is blinded and cannot see targets. noise in the radar receiver. 26). 26 The purpose of a noise jammer is to mask targets by emission of signals that create confusion on the radar display.
