Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-138
Budget: 10/20/14 - 01/27/17

ABSTRACT: The Protected Tactical Waveform (PTW) promises low-cost communications for dismounted forces who have a critical need for secure, anti-jam (AJ), and low-probability-of-intercept (LPI) satellite communications (SATCOM). To allow dismounted forces to leverage the benefit of PTW requires very low size, weight, and power (SWaP) PTW modems...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-138
Budget: 08/22/13 - 05/23/14

ABSTRACT: The ongoing launch of next generation AEHF satellites promises significant new protected MILSATCOM capabilities. To allow dismounted forces to leverage this benefit requires very low size, weight, and power (SWaP) AEHF modems capable of operating at up to 256 kbps. ORB Analytics proposes a 0.1 pound, 1.1 Watt, modem design with appli...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB131-006
Budget: 05/07/13 - 02/06/14
PI: Lee Garth

To achieve dramatic gains in spectrum efficiency over current military wireless communication networks, ORB Analytics proposes an intelligent overlay network built of Cognitive Radios (CR) that exploit multi-domain information including geo-location, modulation, policy, and historical usage information for primary users as well as other CR nodes...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-042
Budget: 07/11/12 - 07/11/14

Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) promises much better communications quality and throughput for cognitive radios sharing spectrum with primary users. The most effective DSA radios will use spectrum sensing to identify any opportunities for communications. For purposes of identifying spectrum holes, it is well known that cyclostationary processing a...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: ES-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will involve research on and development of a reconfigurable wireless platform enabling secondary access of wireless spectrum via simultaneous data transmission across several disjoint frequency channels. In particular, the proposed innovations will advance the current state-of-the-a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-042
Budget: 05/06/11 - 11/06/11

Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) promises much better communications quality, throughput, and robustness for cognitive radios sharing spectrum with other (e.g., primary) users. Effective DSA radios will identify any spectrum space opportunities that can opportunistically be exploited for communications. For purposes of identifying unused spectr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-095
Budget: 02/18/11 - 02/18/12

ABSTRACT: Several MILSATCOM systems allow the use of turbo codes to improve communications performance. These systems were standardized before the widespread use of Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes. While turbo and LDPC codes have many similarities, ORB Analytics believes that future MILSATCOM systems should also support LDPC codes. Rela...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-O1.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

With more missions at high data rates demanding use of limited spectral resources, NASA's SCaN office recently coordinated a study to identify a space communications architecture to support future missions. The study recommends precoded GMSK and AR4JA LDPC codes as preferred options in most Space Network and Ground Network forward and return li...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-222
Budget: 09/20/10 - 05/20/12

COCOMs and G/RSSCs need the ability to rapidly and conveniently perform MUOS communications usage planning and to determine if a particular allocation is sufficient so as to, if necessary, negotiate an adjusted apportionment to service their priorities and throughput requirements. To satisfy this need, ORB Analytics, LLC, proposes a MUOS Quick P...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-O1
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK) is a CCSDS standard scheme for space missions requiring very bandwidth efficient communications using transceivers with strict size, weight, and power restrictions. GMSK provides a constant envelope signal that passes unaltered through system nonlinearities, allowing efficient power amplifier operation witho...
