Title: Innovative, High Performance, and Radiation Hardened Interceptor Software Defined Radio
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-09-C-7156
Award Amount: $99,944.00


Avionics systems currently utilized in BMDS interceptors are considered too expensive, bulky, and heavy, utilizing old technology that does not meet the performance requirements for future interceptor technologies, such as the Kinetic Energy Interceptors (KEI), Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV), and the recently proposed Agile Kill Vehicle (AKV). The government is particularly interested in technologies and concepts that maximize agility, single shot probability of kill, and employment envelope, while minimizing size and life costs. Amtec and its large business partner Rockwell Collins propose to address the requirements of the topic solicitation as well as current and future interceptor communication link subsystems. The proposed solution to this topic will have relevance across BMDS by providing high performance, small size, commonality, and cost savings required for reliable communications between BMDS elements. While the current efforts focuses on near term goals that are lower risk, this proposed effort allows Amtec and Rockwell Collins to probe higher risk technologies and integration levels that would meet performance and size and mass requirements provided by the solicitation topic as well as be compatible with legacy communication links within BMDS.
