Abstract:

The increasing need to provide information to the warfighter is driving the need for innovative sensor systems. This SBIR addresses the need to incorporate UAV operational capability into the P-3 aircraft in support of its many diverse missions. Benefits to UAV usage with the P3 include cost economics, enhanced operations, and crew safety. Currently there are no commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) Ad Hoc Networked Data Link Systems in use today that meet all of the needs for UAV applications by the P3. Current commercial solutions are high cost, too large, have limited range, operate only in commercial frequencies and do not have encryption. Aeronix is proposing, per this SBIR, to provide a SL-UAV Data Link that is based upon the COTS IEEE 802.16D specification but is enhanced for DoD military requirements. Aeronix will directly leverage its existing 802.16 Rev D software radio (SCA compliant) solution which has been designed to provide 65.5 Mbps throughput over ranges up to 70 miles with beam antennas.
