Localized High Bandwidth Wireless Secure Mesh Network

Description:

TECHNOLOGY AREA(S): Electronics

OBJECTIVE: Provide an equipment centralized network solution that allows the digitization of RF spectrum into packetized IF to transport massive amounts of data.

DESCRIPTION: The RF spectrum from any antenna source on the White Sands Missile Range shall be digitized, transported to, and faithfully reconstructed at a centralized operations facility. The architecture must allow for the ability to move ground modems and processing equipment away from antennas so that they can be shared among multiple antennas, allowing the ability for multiple grounds sites to access and work with the same data.

PHASE I: End product for Phase I should be a fully vetted design of a High Bandwidth Wireless Secure Mesh Network with an architecture that allows for the ability to move ground modems and processing equipment away from antennas so that they can be shared among multiple antennas, allowing the ability for multiple grounds sites to access and work with the same data.

PHASE II: End product for Phase II shall be a prototype that interfaces existing COTS technologies which generates a concentrated invisible beam of light which has properties similar to a laser but with incoherent output (safer and better for distance) than a laser. The beam does not spread out like typical light but stays in a close formation like a laser with billions of pulses of light in a single second which are detectable at high bandwidths greater than 10Gbps. Adding additional wavelengths to the beam is easy due to the design flexibility which will increase the bandwidth to 40Gbps and possibly over 100Gbps on a single beam. Multiple detectors filter out and separate the channels.

PHASE III: Fully automated networking system solution allowing for digitization of RF spectrum into packetized IF, subsequently allowing the secure transportation of massive amounts of data. Bandwidths greater than 10Gbps are desired, with a 40Gbps threshold and over 100Gbps objective on a single beam.
