Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc. proposes to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a radar early warning receiver for the dismounted soldier’s uniform, armor or battle kit that identifies and locates Ground Surveillance Radar (GSR) threats.  In Phase II we plan to demonstrate the feasibility of the technical approach through demonstrations of the Phase I designs, including breadboard or demonstration board of electronic components, signal processing, electronic integration with uniform, armor, or soldier kit, and detailed plans for placement as well as size, weight and power.  The sensor will capture sufficient information to identify the GSR system from a library of waveforms.  The system will be able to find angle of arrival and estimate of the location relative the user.  The system will perform for signals in the X and Ku bands (8-18 GHz).  Phase II deliverables will include, (1) a final report detailing technical approach, design, implementation, tests, data analysis, conclusions, and proposed path for integration with the soldier’s kit; (2) All test data; (3) Working breadboard prototypes with software.
