Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T008
Budget: 09/27/06 - 06/27/07

The proliferation of low-cost wireless devices has led to increased commercial interest in dynamic mesh networks. At the same time, similar military requirements have surfaced, stemming from Network Centric Warfare and emerging advanced MANET applications. Tactical users stand to realize enormous benefits in size, weight, power and cost by lever...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-207
Budget: 08/30/06 - 06/05/09

Nova Engineering will develop and demonstrate prototype HED (Handheld Emission Detectors) in Phase II; the architecture of these HEDs will be compatible with Land Warrior, for ease of integration during Phase III. Nova s HEDs will be composed of six major subsystems: (1) a new broad-band receiver that will span 30 to 3000 MHz; this will be a n...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-066
Budget: 08/24/06 - 08/23/08

Nova Engineering proposes a Flexible, Interoperable Spaceborne Transceiver (FIST) program for the development of a software definable radio (SDR) modem for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV). A programmable hardware architecture is proposed that affords the benefits of SDR reconfigurability under the rigor...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-168
Budget: 05/11/06 - 05/11/08

Nova proposes to develop a miniature K-band transceiver for use on the Kill Vehicle (KV) of the Multiple Kill Vehicles (MKV) program. Work to be performed on this contract consists of three main work items: (1) Requirements gathering and system design, (2) Prototype development, and (3) Demonstration of communication link between two prototype ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-316
Budget: 05/03/06 - 02/02/07

Data throughput requirements for supporting airborne telemetry test and training missions have significantly increased while spectral allocation has decreased. This situation strongly motivates a migration towards more spectrally-efficient modulations techniques such as the ARTM Tier I and Tier II waveforms, which offer two to three times the s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-008
Budget: 04/07/06 - 04/12/07

Carrier based signals have commonly been used for many command and control applications. While carrier based waveforms are simple to implement, they do not provide jamming resistance or LPI/LPD characteristics. This proposal describes a non-carrier based waveform that is applicable to a wide range of command and control applications. The wave...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-065
Budget: 03/27/06 - 09/27/06

Nova and Harris propose to design a communication subsystem for the Carrier Vehicle (CV) of the Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV) system. The design addresses both the short range (~50 km) exoatmospheric links to the miniature Kill Vehicles (KVs) as well as the long range (>1000 km) links to the ground based IFICS Data Terminals (IDTs). The Phase I wo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-140
Budget: 02/15/06 - 08/15/06

Existing commercial radios have not been designed with tactical UAV applications in mind. Nova has conducted trade studies of all applicable networking, link layer, and hardware considerations relevant to the P-3 and SL-UAV mission scenario. After consideration of alternative technologies, a preliminary design is presented with data supporting...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM04-006
Budget: 12/05/05 - 12/05/06

Special Operations Forces face a variety of scenarios that limit communications. Blockage by urban structures, urban and rural terrain obstacles, and a desire for over-the-horizon communication dictate the need for a tactical repeater. The proposed research will analyze candidate repeater architectures. Emphasis will be placed on cost, size, ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-143
Budget: 11/08/05 - 11/08/07

There is an immediate need in urban conflicted areas for networks of disposable sensors that are rapidly deployable and that provide a sufficiently high data rate to move the burden of signal processing for data fusion to a central acquisition and processing resource. Although such a wide area sensing system promises gains in the utility of sens...
