Adaptive Side lobe Jamming Cancellation for Low altitude radar Habib Rezaei, Mohsen Mivehchy, Saied Ali Hashemi receiver signals at I and Q signals (Quadrature) of side Abstract Side lobe jamming technique is a safe method that receiver, the phase difference between the main signal and prevents detection of interference source. Side lobe cancellation side I and Q signals are extracted. With a weight ratio the two can be efficiently employed to reduce the effects of jammers on side receiver signals, I and Q are gathered and produce a radar systems through antenna side lobes.
2 The feedback control method doesn't require any components with a high dynamic signal which has the same power and phase as the main range for reduction of side lobes, which is suitable for analogous interfering signal. By subtracting generated signal from the processing. The feedback control enables us to reducing the side main receiver, the interference signal is removed from main lobes interference up to 40dB. In this method, by comparing the signal, and only the target signal remains in the main receiver. main receiver signal with the side receiver signal, Phase and The block diagram of this method is shown in power difference between the signals can be determined.

Side lobe canceller system, reduces radar side lobe + OUT. effect by auxiliary antennas in addition to the main antenna. The radars usually have one or more auxiliary antenna, which Fig 1. SLC block diagram are aligned with the main antenna. The width of the main lobe of the auxiliary antenna is bigger than the whole radiation area If side receiver signal is given by Va, then Va can be of each of main radar antenna side lobes. This antenna main represented by(1): lobe gain is more than any main antenna side lobes.

Side J. lobe canceller system can be efficiently employed to reduce B=Jamming signal amplitude coefficient at side receiver the effects of jammers on a radar system through antenna side J =Jamming frequency lobes. When comparing the main receiver power with the side Side receiver signal is hard limited for attenuation receiver's power, if the side receiver's power is more than the amplitude variations in the side receiver signal. By placing a LPF after this system, the high frequency component is main receiver's, then signal has been received by the side removed and amplitude of the output signal is fixed.
