The proposal is to perform a feasibility study on the creation of an ultra-secure communications system with LPD / LPI and AJ, data rates above 1 Gbps, and SWAP low enough for man portable battery powered operation. This study will look at adaption commercial LEO backhaul waveforms to be ultra-secure, using sate of the art hardware like the Xilinx RF SoC and the Dujud 3D printed conformal phased array SATCOM antenna, to combine into a fully integration communications system. Topics of waveform development, beam forming, antenna design, software defined radio design, RF spreading, LPD / LPI implementation, and SWAP reduction will all be covered. A formal recommendation will be generated from this effort as to the best overall option to pursue.
