Paper Abstract

The performance of millimeter-wave (MMW) communications techniques for air-to-air applications is reviewed. The anti-jam (AJ) and low-probability-of-intercept (LPI) performance of a communications system resulting from the attenuative characteristics of the atmosphere in the 50-60 GHz band are characterized. The objective of the communications system design is to avoid traditional AJ and LPI techniques such as spread-spectrum modulation and narrow-beam antennas, resulting in a simple system with a robust and secure communications capability.
