Title: Ultra-Compact UWB Transient Receiver/Digitizer (9693)

Contract: FA9451-05-M-0209
Award Amount: $99,975.00
 

Abstract:

Q-DOT proposes to develop an Ultra-Compact (1-2 chip) UWB Transient Receiver/Digitizer to enable the practical military application of UWB for identifying targets behind walls or in foliage. To date, UWB target identification system (TIS) deployment has been severely impeded by the rack-mounted, laboratory equipment required for the receiver/digitizer function. The proposed Receiver/Digitizer will enable numerous UWB TIS equipment for a variety of ground-based and airborne operations, specifically including a handheld UWB TIS. The Receiver/Digitizer will be realized in IBM's 8HP SiGe BiCMOS process via DoD's ITAR-compliant Trusted Foundry Agreement (TFA). During Phase I, the Receiver/Digitizer will be configured to meet mission requirements. Critical elements will be conceptually designed to project their performance. A prototype Receiver/Digitizer will be developed in Phase II prior to developing a handheld UWB TIS in Phase III.
