Automated Steerable Nulling Antenna Processor (SNAP) Model

Nicholas DeMinco

Abstract: This report describes an adaptive antenna computer model that simulates the behavior of a steerable–nulling antenna processor (SNAP) in a jamming or interference environment. The model predicts the signal–to– (interference–plus–noise) ratio as a function of antenna parameters and interference environment. The model can be used to demonstrate the application of antennas with the SNAP for obtaining increased spectrum utilization or improved performance in an interference or jamming environment.

Keywords: adaptive antennas; interference nulling; steerable-nulling antenna processor
