This chapter discusses in detail three solutions to reduce the effects of jammers: a method to protect the system against pulse or burst jammers, an adaptive filter to reduce narrowband jammers such as continuous wave (CW), and a jammer reduction technique called a Gram-Schmitt orthogonalizer (GSO). Other techniques to reduce the effects of jammers are antenna siting, which mounts the antenna away from structures that cause reflections and potential jammers, and the actual antenna design to prevent potential jammers from interfering with the desired signal. In addition, in some systems, the ability for another receiver to detect the transmitted signal is important. These types of receivers are known as intercept receivers. A discussion is presented on the various types of intercept receivers, and the advantages and disadvantages of each are evaluated.
