Support Jammer Queuing
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
This activity seeks to investigate new concepts for improved RF sensing, integrated communication data links, and subsequent command and control targeted Jamming of Threat emitters. Several airframes will be considered as part of the overall Sensor/Jammer architecture to include Small-Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms. These platforms would support Mobility Air Force (MAF) aircraft and the standoff jammers deployed in support of them. Critical challenges include sensing/geo-locating LPI Threat emitters, communicating their locations to the standoff jammer in real-time while using extremely high sensitivity, lightweight and low power sensor, and communication systems technology. Further, the system concept must be consistent with the Air Force Layered Sensing Architecture and provide a network-centric solution for delivery of data from the sensor platform to all appropriate layers within the architecture. This activity will develop the concept for the sensor sub-system and data link, their nominal interface requirements, and the hardware and software requirements that will define a system capable of demonstrating the concept. BENEFIT: It is anticipated that the resulting Phase I and II studies provide not only an end-to-end solution for the Support Jammer Queuing requirement but will also provide building blocks for other Dual Use Missions. Examples of those potential missions are highly portable, high sensitivity directional RF sensors, flexible low SWaP future data links for LOS, OTH, and potential SATCOM solutions along with the numerous variations based on the building block integrations. Potential areas for other Government Agency support could include Border Security, Port Security, IED detection within Large Crowd environments, and flexible high bandwidth LOS networks for quick response implementation.
