Shipboard Wideband Collection Systems Using an S2-material based Receiver
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The objectives of the base project are three-fold: 1) An existing prototype hardware spectrum analyzer receiver system will be enhanced, tested in house, and ruggedized to enable it to be field tested at a federal test site (in the option). Work will focus on dynamic range improvements, continuous time coverage, and aims for innovation with multi-stage processing approaches to be analyzed and demonstrated. 2) A new crystal mount will be designed, engineered, and tested such that it can mounted in a closed-cycle cryostat including necessary applied magnetic fields, and with S2 Corporation's proprietary vibration-isolation mounting, such that the system can achieve continuous operation. 3) The multi-function nature of S2 systems will be analyzed and documented with the goal of utilizing RF apertures for applications of electronic warfare, sensing and communications, in the context of a disruptive approach aimed to dominate the electro-magnetic spectrum for future designs in shipboard applications. In the option, the prototype hardware as assembly would be used for an external testing effort, and results documented.
