Title: Methods for interfacing broad bandwidth data links to airborne ISR systems
Agency: DOD
Contract: FA8650-11-M-1111
Award Amount: $99,962.00


Sensors making use of the Common Data Link (CDL) are generating more information, thus taxing the capabilities of available spectrum for the relay of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance information. We will define new sensor-to-link and link-to-sensor interface models, which will provide the capability to perform"what-if"analysis on parametric models impacting latency and bandwidth. These models will support: multiple data rates for Bandwidth Efficient (BE) rates, multiple streaming channels, and segregated control and data channels. We will use state-of-the-art tools for performing modeling, simulation, analysis, and documentation on the developed models. BENEFIT: Models will enable rapid simulations and analysis of the trade-offs amongst multiple parameters of CDL component interfaces and different protocol configuration options by providing controllability and observe-ability of the key parameters and status of the interfaces. The results of our successful technology transition will be usable for designers and integrators of CDL assets. The developed models will allow for a greater degree of confidence in specification and design of CDL-based interfaces. These benefits will impact the USAF and commercial entities developing and using CDL interfaces.
