Research Institution

The proposed research will lead to a hybrid laser communications and ultra wide band (UWB) radio frequency communication system that will provide the maximum throughput achievable (>>1Gb/s) with novel emerging state-of-the-art technology, while also providing graceful degradtion should laser communications be affected by atmospheric effects. The all-aspect UWB element provides the means to cue the directive laser communications element, while also providing high bandwidth fail-over capability. The UWB element can also be used by itself in electronic warfare environments. Novel means of digital notching and amplifier pre- and post-compensation schemes will provide anti-jam capabilities not now available, while simultaneously preserving more low probability of detection performance in comparison to other techniques.
