Surveying SDLVAs for ELINT and EW (.PDF Download)

Signals can be elusively short-lived and signal analysis difficult in tactical applications. Many electronic defense systems rely on a component that is a combination of a detector and an amplifier, such as a detector log video amplifier (DLVA) or a successive detection log video amplifier (SDLVA), to sort low-level signals from such a crowed signal  environment. A SDLVA essentially adds gain stages to a DLVA to increase its amplitude dynamic range.

These types of amplifiers ofte
