Title: Beam Forming/Null Steering Algorithms for Rotorcraft Mounted Global Positioning System (GPS) Anti-Jam Receivers
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68335-12-C-0399
Award Amount: $749,667.00


PaneraTech, in partnership with Ohio State University ElectroScience Laboratory, is proposing to demonstrate with measurements the performance of advanced beamforming/null steering algorithms for rotorcraft platforms that were studied in Phase I. The main objective of the Phase II research effort is to experimentally verify our beam forming/ null steering approaches for rotorcraft mounted GPS receiver adaptive antennas in representative and real world scenarios. We will begin with experimental verification on a representative rotorcraft platform and then move on to a real rotorcraft under Phase II option. Under both setups, the signal scenarios will consist of multiple GPS satellite signals as well as multiple interfering signals with different characteristics (bandwidth, power, angle of arrival, etc.).
