Abstract:

A microminiature radio sensor system may be decomposed into antenna, RF, and digital subsystems, plus support elements (power, case, datalink, storage, etc.). The difficult aspect of the requirements is the simultaneous requirement for small size, wide frequency coverage, low power consumption, dynamic range, and integral datalink. Most are classical tradeoffs for radio system designs, but newer technologies may enable better solutions and compromises. Softronics proposes to begin with a system requirements analysis, and proceed to survey the newest available technologies in each subsystem, combine them with our knowledge of classical surveillance system techniques and technology, and generate a preliminary system design candidate for Phase I Option critical breadboarding and Phase II prototype implementation. Our proposed tasking will consider all possibilities from our trade studies in developing new architectures best meet the requirements set, but also offers several novel and innovative RF and antenna architectures for consideration based on internal Softronics research.
