Abstract:
Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) radar is a system that represents a confluence between Radar and Electronic Support (ES) technology. The objective of LPI radar is clear, that is, to escapedetection by the ES receiver. Low probability of intercept (LPI) is that property of an emitter that because of its low power, wide bandwidth, frequency variability, or other design attributes,makes it difficult to be detected or identified by means of passive intercept devices such as radar warning, electronic support and electronic intelligence receivers, In order to detect LPI radar waveforms new signal processing techniques are required. Higher Order Spectral Analysisalgorithms are used to extract useful information from the input signal. This includes the use of Bispectrum, Bicoherence and Trispectrum techniques. The images (2D plots) produced by theabove algorithms are unique for each LPI signal and serves as a signature.

Introduction:
Many users of radar today are specifying a
 Low Probability of Intercept 
(LPI) as animportant tactical requirement.The term LPI is that property of a radar that because of its low power, wide bandwidth,frequency variability, or other design attributes, makes it difficult to be detected by means of  passive intercept receiver devices such as electronic support (ES), radar warning receivers(RWRs), or electronics intelligence (ELINT) receivers. It follows that the LPI radar attempts to provide detection of targets at longer ranges than intercept receivers can accomplish detection of the radar. The success of LPI radar is measured by how hard it is for the receiver to detect theradar emission parameters.The LPI requirement is in response to the increase in capability of modern interceptreceivers to detect and locate a radar emitter. In applications such as altimeters, tactical airbornetargeting, surveillance and navigation, the interception of the radar transmission can quickly leadto
electronic attack 
(or jamming). The LPI requirement is also in response to the pervasive threatof being destroyed by precision guided munitions and Anti-Radiation Missiles (ARMs). Thedenial of signal intercept protects these types of emitters from most known threats and is theobjective of having a low probability of intercept. Since LPI radars typically use wideband CWsignals that are difficult to intercept and/or identify, intercept receivers have a difficult timeusing only power spectral analysis and must resort to more sophisticated signal processingsystems to extract the waveform parameters necessary to create the proper coherent jammingresponse.This paper compares four intercept receiver signal processing techniques to detect theLPI radar waveform parameters. To test the four techniques, a variety of LPI CW waveformswere generated with signal-to-noise ratios of 0 and -6 dB.LPI waveforms generated include:
 FMCW, P1 through P4, Frank code, Costas hopping and combined PSK/FSK.
Signal processing techniques compared include (a) filter bank processingwith higher order statistics, (b) Wigner distribution, (c) Quadrature mirror filter banks and (d)Cyclostationary processing.The need to detect transient signals arises in various applications, such as in communications,underwater acoustics, and seismic surveillance.
