"In this program Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will team to combine an error resilient video compression and transmission technology with a new low-cost high-endurance small Unmanned ArielVehicle (UAV). The focus of the program will be to miniaturize the university's hardware implementation of this new technology such that the total package size does not exceed 4 lbs. The package will be integrated into the Smart War-Fighter Array ofReconfigurable Modules (SWARM) UAV. A successful Phase I will lead to a Phase II program for the development of a new long range, high data rate, and robust radio system. This system would be applicable to existing UAV platforms and will providesignificant benefit to next generation high-speed UAV platforms with aggressive maneuver capabilities. Commercial markets are large, widespread, and include application in Navy SWARM UAV's, military modem based video communications, internet videocommunications, and next generation G3 video cell phones."
