Advanced Wireless Maintainer Communications in Electromagnetically Noisy Environments
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Navy aircraft operate from and in these highly dynamic environments with many people performing various tasks, such as ordnance loading, hot fueling, recovery of equipment and personnel, and multiple in-flight mission operations. Mission success requires a high level of coordination and communication. This research is designed to advance the state of the art in wireless communications aboard ship by developing a usable Visible Light Communications (VLC) system to provide high bandwidth, reliable communications for maintainer to maintainer and maintainer to aircraft communications. The system will be encryption capable and, because of the unique nature of VLC, will be difficult to intercept and jam in the operational theatre. Further, by avoiding traditional RF, the system will be safer in and around environments in which stray RF energy can be hazardous.'
