Title: THE PROPOSED WORK WOULD PROVIDE MEANS FOR REMOTING THE TRANSMITTER PORTION OF GROUND-NETWORK RADIOS.

Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $62,759.00
 

Abstract:

THE PROPOSED WORK WOULD PROVIDE MEANS FOR REMOTING THE TRANSMITTER PORTION OF GROUND-NETWORK RADIOS. FUTURE ENEMY SENSOR SYSTEMS WILL PROVIDE RAPID ACQUISITION AND TARGETING, ESPECIALLY AGAINST COMMAND CENTERS. TRANSMITTERS LOCATED FAR FROM ASSOCIATED RECEIVERS, EQUIPMENT AND PERSONNEL WOULD REDUCE THIS PROBLEM. THE DIRECT CONVERSION OF RF WAVEFORMS TO OPTICAL SIGNALS AND USE OF FIBER-OPTIC CABLE FOR CONNECTION TO THE REMOTE SITE WOULD REQUIRE MINIMUM MODIFICATION OF EXISTING RADIOS AND INEXPENSIVE, HENCE EXPENDABLE, REMOTE TRANSMITTERS. RF COAXIAL CABLE IS BULKY, DIFFICULT TO LAY, AND SUFFERS FROM EXCESSIVE PROPAGATION LOSS FOR FREQUENCIES USED IN SYSTEMS SUCH AS JTIDS, WHILE FIBER-OPTIC CABLE IS IDEAL FOR THIS APPLICATION. USE OF SEVERAL REMOTE TRANSMITTERS SELECTED BY OPTICAL SWITCHES COULD ENABLE FURTHER CONFUSION OF THE ENEMY BY "SPACE HOPPING". COMMANDCENTERS COULD GIVE THE APPEARANCE OF SEVERAL SUBORDINATE UNITS.
