Abstract:

Emerging portable software defined radio (SDR) technology has great potential to improve the communication capability of dismounted and Special Forces personnel, as it can quickly acquire the operational information in a hostile environment, and adapt to it based on spectrum needs and available resources. The major challenge lies in the following aspects: effectiveness of spectrum sensing, network identification, effective network assessment, advanced security mechanisms, and spectrum adaptation. However, most of the existing research focuses on the enabling technologies such as spectrum sensing and adaption, but pays less attention to other aspects. Moreover, the current development is still in its early stage and demands further investigation. In addition, to support diverse spectrum of mission requirements and needs, all five aspects should be fully leveraged and equally emphasized. To address this critical need, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop a dynamic Network Sensing, Assessment, and Intrusion Detection (NetSAID) system on portable SDR platforms to enable the dismounted and Special Forces personnel to rapidly adapt to hostile environments and acquire relevant operational information. The proposed approach will significantly improve the reliable and secure access to battlefield networks, as well as the enhanced support for situation awareness.
