Building a Shared Understanding of Wireless Communications

Signal Processing Vocabulary

Rampart is innovating in the fundamentals of wireless communications: advancing the state-of-the-art in secure, reliable, and capable networks. Equally important to these advances is the ability to clearly convey and compare the benefits of our technologies over current-generation radios and capabilities.

This document covers a set of basic definitions and terms relevant to wireless communications and security at large. We share these definitions to enable shared understanding among not just researchers, developers, and customers, but any user of wireless communications systems. What constitutes a waveform, why clearly defining “low” probability of detection is a complex task, what it means to intercept a signal—these are nuanced questions requiring significant background and context. The world of electronic warfare needs real solutions, and Rampart is committed to setting clear and transparent standards for the communications of tomorrow.
