White Paper  05 February 2013
Full Proposal 07 May 2013


SCOPE:  The goal of Electronic Warfare (EW) is to control the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum (EMS) by exploiting, deceiving, or denying enemy use of the spectrum while ensuring its use by friendly forces. To that end, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) EW Discovery and Invention (D&I) program invests in Science and Technology (S&T) initiatives that will provide naval forces (including Navy and Marine Corps) with improved threat warning systems; Electronic warfare Support (ES); decoys and countermeasures against weapon tracking and guidance systems; Electronic Attack (EA) against adversary Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR); and Electronic Protection (EP) of our own weapons and C4ISR from intentional and unintentional interference.  Proposals should address technology developments in one or more of the following areas, see URL for full descriptions:

A. Enabling Cognitive and Adaptive Electronic Warfare

1. Spectrum Knowledge
2. Spectrum Learning
3. Spectrum Reasoning
4. Spectrum Attack:

B. Technologies for High Throughput and Rapidly Programmable EW Systems

C. Emulation Environments for Adaptive and Targeted Electronic Warfare

D. Innovative EW Concepts
