Abstract:

n this Phase I effort, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling highly directive multi-beam TCDL communications using phased arrays integrated on the Fire Scout UAV platform. Phased array systems allow for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation. The use of multibeam arrays will allow the Fire Scout and other UAV platforms to augment fleet communications, supporting information dominance for airborne assets, surface ships, and expeditionary forces. FIRST RF proposes an innovative approach that leverages affordable phased array architecture to provide a highly functional TCDL communications node with multi-beam capability. Commercial applications of this technology have also been identified.
