Research Institution
In the Phase I of the proposed effort, IEM will produce an innovative automatic CW Morse Code system which will operate on a HF radio. The proposed system will be low power, small, light weight and useable by typical personnel. IEM will perform anexhaustive search for all components to look for suitable COTS solutions. Innovative approaches, designs, and solutions will then be combined with COTS solutions to create a fully integrated system design. The proposed system will be useable in severeenvironmental conditions such as heat, dirt, rain, moisture, high vibration, shock, etc. Based on IEM's extensive background in rugged imaging and computing solutions, we will bring innovative hardware, DSP, software, and system integration solutions tomake it all happen. Some of IEM's innovations include a ruggedized scanner design, improved DSP techniques, generic HF radio-laptop interface, high performance character recognition / correction, high performance image compression and a unique scheme tosend images, block diagrams, and sketches. In the Phase I effort, IEM will demonstrate a fully working prototype of the automated Morse Code system. In the Defense Sector, primary markets include a backup communication system. In the Civilian Sector, applications include search and rescue assistance, emergency and disaster response support, backup communications, and low cost third world communicationsolutions
