Genetic algorithm enhancement of radar system survivability

Patent image
CCDC ARL

A process for enhancing radar system survivability against a threat includes the construction of multiple computational radar function chromosomes with each of the chromosomes having values for geometric configuration and operational parameters for at least one radar station emitter and at least one decoy. A genetic algorithm analysis is performed on a computer including a crossover operator and a mutation operator to determine a fitness value for multiple chromosomes against the threat. By configuring and operating the radar system based on a survivability value for the fitness value of the genetic algorithm analysis, radar system survivability against a threat is enhanced. A radar system employing genetic algorithm analysis is also provided.
