Title: Low Size Weight and Power (SWaP) wideband Digital Receiver Exciters (DREX) technologies for Radar and Communication Systems
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68335-13-C-0273
Award Amount: $79,981.00
 

Abstract:

FIRST RF will develop a low SWaP DREX system approach that will include a wideband, multichannel frequency conversion capability. Requirements and design viability for a flexible multi-mission system that can support advanced radar modes or high-bandwidth communications will be investigated. FIRST RF will also pursue an innovative DREX integration approach with the rest of a sophisticated phased array system. This integration approach seeks to minimize system SWaP by eliminating redundant enclosures, cabling, and thermal management systems. The resulting system will be low-profile, air cooled, and contain all necessary structural, RF, environmental enclosure, and DREX subsystems required for a next generation sensor. The successful completion of this program will allow naval airborne assets to have unprecedented capabilities for operating in a variety of ISR and force protection roles.
