SET-179 Dynamic Waveform Diversity and Design
The recently completed NATO SET-179 RTG involved participation by eight countries to investigate new capabilities that could be achieved through the new design freedoms enabled by Waveform Diversity (WD), a rather broad term that encompassess waveform optimization, multi-dimensional coupling paradigms such as MIMO sensing, waveform-related adaptivity on transmit and receive, and bio-mimetic waveform attributes. Under this aegis, multiple topics were explored by the participants, with particular emphases on physically realizable radar emissions and the practical implications of WD so as ultimately to realize the experimental demonstration of several altogether new sensing strategies.

The REM can be viewed as rich hierarchical databases containing various types of static and dynamic radio environment information e.g. sensing information from Radios or EW sensors, raw spectrum measurements, terrain models, building plans, fixed transmitters, statistical propagation models, estimations of located transmitters and their configurations, estimations of radio propagation models etc.
PRONGHORN 2014 (SET-190/RTG106) - A Major Achievement for Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Sensing within NATO
During the past 10 years, several NATO countries active in longwave infrared hyperspectral sensing expressed interest in conducting a joint data collection campaign. This effort would allow for sharing of experimental know-how, gathering of ground-based and airborne data, understanding of sensor performance and comparison of exploitation techniques on specific scenarios relevant to NATO, such as chemical spills, gas releases, C-IED. The SET-190/RTG 106 was created to achieve this ambitious goal, which was successfully completed in August 2014 at DRDC Suffield.
