Abstract [en]

High frequency (HF) communications are of vital importance for modern military operations. However, HF channels are touchy and unpredictable, prone to noise, fading, jamming, and interference. Therefore, a number of prediction tools for channel selection have been developed. However, existing tools do not consider the local actual electromagnetic interference at receivers located on navy and army platforms. Measurements on military platforms show that also the local interference environment can be crucial and has large variations in frequency and time. In this paper we analyze the levels and dynamics of local interference from a typical military platform. We show that the variations regarding interference waveform can be very large between two consecutive seconds of measurement. This means that the interference impact in terms of bit error probability also will be very large between such consecutive seconds. The overall conclusion is that future methods for HF-frequency selection would be significantly improved by considering the characteristics of local interference from electrical equipment.
