Research Institution

"This Phase II SBIR program will design, develop, and demonstrate an automated RF spectrum monitoring system capable of detecting and locating RF emitters and interference sources operating in a military test range environment. The system will trackauthorized spectrum usage and report unauthorized utilization in near real time, using automated signal interception, interference analysis, and advanced data visualization methods. The RF monitoring system prototype design will be tailored to therequirements of the US Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) located at Edwards Air Force Base, California. The modern COTS-based system design and implementation approach will be modular and extendable, to be adaptable to a wide variety of military testrange and commercial RF spectrum monitoring needs. The Phase II prototype system will accomplish the additional research and development necessary to produce a well-defined deliverable commercial product for production under future Phase IIIcommercialization efforts. The prototype will implement high-priority subsets of the full commercial-version system functions, including advanced measurement analysis routines, signal processing, and novel data display and visualization capabilities."
