Interoperability and compatibility techniques for Counter Radio controlled IED Electronic Warfare (CREW) and other Radio Frequency Communication

DOD / NAVY
The simultaneous need for blue force broadband communications link and the proliferation of sensitive SIGINT receivers has created the need for the US Navy to develop a system capable of suppressing broadband interference in close proximity to sensitive receivers. The goal of the current SBIR is to develop a low cost system that will provide the US Navy with the capability to deploy and use a variety of transmitters, communication systems, and SIGINT systems in close proximity without the requirement of connecting the various systems. A wideband interference rejecting antenna system must provide broadband omni-directional coverage when installed on a vehicle and be capable of maximum wideband interference cancellation. The system must operate over a minimum frequency range of today's existing terrestrial SIGINT and communications systems. Finally, the system must be capable of rejecting both on-vehicle and in-convoy interference sources. The FIRST RF team proposes a new system that combines broadband antenna technology and advanced null forming techniques with state of the art cancellation electronics to provide a wideband wireless cancellation technology to meet the US Navy requirements.
