Title: Innovative, High Performance, and Radiation Hardened Interceptor Software Defined Radio
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-10-C-7242
Award Amount: $874,999.00
 

Abstract:

Software defined radios (SDRs) provide a means to achieve enhanced capability, integrated into a cost-effective and growth-oriented architecture fully backward compatible with legacy BMDS elements. As demonstrated through the results of the Phase I SBIR program, implementing a SDR architecture is not without challenge due to the potential computing performance and radiation hardness limitations of technology available today. SDR-based modems have many advantages over the current ASIC-based interceptor modems, which are not easily or economically field upgradable as new and varying threats/requirements arise. SDR architecture in a next generation interceptor modem will provide the flexibility to respond to technological surprises, changes in mission requirements or threat conditions through software reconfiguration. Further, application of the SDR architecture and associated technology selections will minimize SWAP as compared to existing legacy systems enhancing overall system performance.
