42 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.13
Budget: 08/11/16 - 12/31/16

This research supports the development of an innovative method of drying hay that will help to reduce farmers' dependence on good weather for hay harvesting. Currently, farmers need to dry hay down to 15% moisturein the field after mowing to allow for proper storage. Typically, this drying process takes 3 days of good weather (warm, sunshine...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-049
Budget: 06/13/16 - 12/10/16

The Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) and unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) work together to provide perimeter protection for the Naval forces. Maintaining persistent connectivity with such unmanned vehicles is critical to the success of the operations. GIRD Systems proposes to develop a novel waveform that provides...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-045
Budget: 08/27/15 - 02/23/16

The purpose of this proposal is to investigate and develop multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) algorithms and protocols for use in mobile, ad-hoc networking. This includes beam-steering designs for heterogeneous node networks and optimum scheduling designs. The performance goal of this development was to maximize network capaci...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-097
Budget: 07/21/15 - 01/21/17

The objective of this SBIR program is to provide improved reliability and predictability of HF communications using either Skywave or Near-Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS) propagation modes at bit rates exceeding 100 kbps to overcome the shortfall in long-range tactical communications in complex terrain environments. In this Phase II effort, G...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-087
Budget: 04/13/15 - 04/12/17

The deep jungle canopy forms a natural radio frequency barrier blocking transmissions both into and out of the jungle canopy. In this work GIRD Systems proposes to develop a system capable of maintaining both digital and voice communications connectivity through jungle canopy. Future system demo is aimed at a man-portable, multimission, multiban...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-035
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:The purpose of this proposal is to investigate and develop a hardware radio architecture that will be able to implement the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Link 16 waveform in a small form-factor device. ?A reduced-Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) platform supporting the Link 16 waveform will lead to handheld devices for the dismounted...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Cincinnati

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T009
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

Carrier phase measurements in GPS are well known to enable precision performance. However, GPS is easily degraded or jammed. Carrier phase measurements in a local radio system, on the other hand, is much easier due to its much stronger signal level compared with GPS. In this proposal GIRD Systems will investigate feasibility of precise position...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-035
Budget: 07/14/14 - 01/10/15

The Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) and unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) work together to provide perimeter protection for the naval forces. Maintaining persistent connectivity with the UUVs/USVs is critical to the success of the operations. GIRD Systems proposes to develop a new waveform that can provide anti-ja...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-189
Budget: 02/05/13 - 02/04/15

ABSTRACT: The technology developed under this SBIR program provides for accurate time synchronization across an entire network for purposes of processing data collected at multiple computers from multiple sensors in real-time. A software solution (in Windows) is desired in order to produce a universal solution, independent from specific hardwar...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-195
Budget: 09/26/12 - 03/26/14

In an effort to facilitate and further expedite the integration of the JTRS MUOS waveform to a large diversity of hardware platforms, GIRD Systems seeks to define and develop a methodology, including necessary tools and artifacts, needed to assess and improve the waveform portability effort. The developments are intended to be hardware agnostic ...
