[INLINE] Passive Ranging and Deghosting _________________________________________________________________ Currently, ships must achieve burnthru on jammers in order to engage, either by waiting until the jammer has approached closely or by expending additional time and energy in burnthru. CEC allows the ships to form a composite track on the jammers based on passive angle track data from each of the ships. Passive angle track data on the jammers is distributed by the CEC net. Elevation and azimuth data are combined by a CEC triangulation/deghosting algorithm to provide a fire control quality track on each of the jammers. The ships can then engage the jammers using the CEC composite track at much greater ranges without the need to achieve burnthru. [INLINE] A deghosting feature removes the "ghost" tracks formed where the passive angle tracks from the different ships cross. ______________________________________________________________________ Next page [LINK] Return to CEC Table of Contents page [LINK] Prev page ______________________________________________________________________ Updated: 10 Oct 1996 Webmaster
