Abstract
"The purpose of this effort is to develop an unattended man-portable or light-mobileRF sensor system to provide ground forces with the capability to detect,intercept, identify, precision locate, and develop targets of both threat voice anddigital communications and non-communications in the millimeter wave frequency radiospectrum. The system will be designed with a wideband scanning capability infrequencies from 20 to 90 GHz. The proliferation of MMW and digital communications andradar systems changes the threats the SIGINT systems must face now and in the future.The rapid development of new technologies requires open systems architecture,adaptable to change. The development of this RF sensor will provide a plug-n-playsensor capability for a MMW SIGINT manpack sensor suitable for SOF via connectivity andcompatibility with Silent Warrior/MIRSS. During the Option, CME will develop a system design conceptsuitable for Prophet Block IV Ground integration and capitalize on electronic mapping,target indicator, GUI situational awareness or other capabilities already developedas part of the lower frequency SIGINT system integration. This MMW SIGINT system will provide the warfighter with a new robust capability to"own the electronic spectrum" and dominate his battle space. Our modular SIGINTsystem approach will provide Army and SOF with a gapfiller technology for SIGINT/DFin the millimeter wave spectrum. The sensor will significantly enhan
