Abstract:

The US Army has a need for a vehicle mounted arbitrary waveform generator to be used for research, development, and testing of various Electronic Surveillance (ES) and Electronic Warfare (EW) systems. The generator must be low-cost, multi-channel, high power, fast tuning, and capable of operation over a wide bandwidth. It must also be designed to operate from vehicle power or a battery pack, and it must be ruggedized for harsh environments, particularly for the shock and vibration associated with operation from a HMMWV. Toyon proposes to meet these requirements with a highly modular design consisting of up to 10 channel-modules and a backplane providing power and Ethernet connectivity. Each channel-module will support a fully independent, high power channel output over the entire operating band. Individual modules will have their own Flash Memory, field programmable gate array (FPGA), waveform synthesizer, up-conversion chain and set of power amplifiers (PAs). They will also be interchangeable, field replaceable, and individually configurable. Toyon is particularly well suited for the development and design of such a waveform generator due to our extensive signal processing, RF design, and prototyping experience.
