Abstract:

Complex and expensive instrumentation is currently required to test the NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) receivers because of their unique characteristics. There is a critical need for a small, portable, dedicated broadcast simulator specifically designed to evaluate NWR system performance. This SBIR Phase I project covers the research directed toward designing, prototyping, and establishing the feasibility of such an all-in-one testing tool, a NWR Broadcast Simulator. This simulator automatically performs comprehensive measurements for testing the performance of the NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) receivers and assessing compliance with the Public Alert Standard CEA-2009. In Phase I a prototype of a NWR Broadcast Simulator will be built and tested to establish proof-of principle. In Phase II a fully engineered simulator will be built, characterized and delivered to NOAA and potential commercialization partners.
