Abstract

ABSTRACT:Mastodon Design will develop and propose a conceptual model of a multi-function, Type-1 radio that will greatly improve the operational effectiveness of the SOF Battlefield Airmen. ?Mastodon will deliver the results of a feasibility study based on the proposed design. ?The study will include an analysis of the key technological components and their impact on predicted radio performance. ?The work completed in Phase I will enable an immediate transition into Phase II and the design and analysis of a test unit.BENEFIT:A rugged, multi-channel, small form factor radio with Type-1 encryption that merges the capability of multiple devices and provides networked voice and data communications will greatly decrease the physical burden and improve the operational effectiveness of the SOF Battlefield Airmen.
