Current airborne tactical jamming systems require rapid detection, geo-location, analysis and classification of emitters. In addition, emerging threat technologies such as spread spectrum, Ultra Wideband, and digital communication and radar systems require increased receiver capability. To stay ahead of the enemy's technology, it is necessary to be able to rapidly design digital microwave receivers, evaluate receiver characteristics and architectures, and predict the receivers' performance. A toolkit has been proposed to integrate existing hardware component models and RF analysis tools through an innovative markup language. This toolkit will allow: 1) Rapid design (within minutes) of a digital microwave receiver from a graphical standard toolset of RF, microwave, digital, and digital signal processing (DSP) components; 2) Evaluation of performance and characteristics of digital receivers; 3) Simulation of digital receiver operation and prediction of performance; and 4) Simulation of emitter operation. SFC has assembled a distinguished team to address this proposal. In conjunction with our university research partner, we are proposing a novel and innovative approach to meet the demanding requirements listed in the solicitation. At the conclusion of Phase II, we plan to have a pre-production version of our product ready for immediate deployment in selected applications.
