Title: Lightweight, Helmet Integrated MTI Radar System (1000-140)
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W15P7T-10-C-S013
Award Amount: $69,997.00
 

Abstract:

SI2 Technologies proposes to use its novel Direct Write printing technology to integrate conformal, embedded antennas into an Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) and combine the embedded antennas with radar electronics to develop a fully integrated Moving Target Indicator (MTI) radar system. In Phase I, the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for the Helmet Mounted Radar System will be defined in consultation with the Army, and based on this information SI2 will conduct a feasibility study that will include radar system definition and evaluate antenna integration approaches. SI2 will define specific approaches to using the data from the radar sensor to cue the soldier to the location of the detected target. The performance of the conformal, embedded antennas will be simulated and a functional block diagram of the MTI radar system will be developed. Considerations for covertness and RF safety (Specific Absorption Rate - SAR) will be included in the feasibility study. Phase I will define a proof of concept for the MTI radar system. In Phase II, a prototype demonstrator system will be developed, and Phase III will integrate the MTI radar system with the ACH.
