Abstract

The goal of the Army STTR Phase I Project is to study and initiate commercialization of the frequency-shifted reference ultra-wideband (FSR-UWB) in short range wireless communications. The project team consists of NewLANS and the University of Massachusetts. The former is a small business with expertise in both wideband circuit design and in the commercialization of communication products, while the latter is a research university where researchers are working on the frequency-shifted reference ultra-wideband (FSR-UWB) technology. The team has identified three research challenges: (1) interference rejection techniques in UWB system, (2) modulation shaping to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio of the original FSR-UWB system, and (3) low-power transceiver design.
