Abstract:

Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered to propose an extensible software framework that can generate a communications gateway to translate information across different networks. Phase I resulted in two major contributions for further research and development. First, a system concept for a rule-based wireless communications gateway was created that translates information based on a certain set of semantics. Second, a proof-of-concept software engine was produced that can configure a gateway for translation at the physical and data link layers. In Phase II, the team plans to integrate the gateway engine with a sophisticated, wide band RF receiver and transmitter for a complete prototype. This will involve using the XG Sensor, a sophisticated, extensively tested, and inexpensive wideband receiver produced by Rockwell Collins.
