Research Institution
The objective of this SBIR project is to establish a flexible and efficient software-defined radio architecture based on multi-waveform secure software programmable technology that can be used in two-way communication links between the Carrier and the Multiple Kill Vehicles or in any other MDA Communications System (EKV, KEI, Aegis etc.). EMAG Technologies Inc. has teamed up with Rockwell Collins Inc. to demonstrate this technology through analysis and simulations that will provide a stable compact platform for fabrication, packaging, testing, reliability, maintainability, radiation tolerance and qualification to meet MDA Requiremnts and Environments. There will be particular emphasis on leveraging the IFICS waveform due to its nuclear robustness. It is anticipated that a combination of reconfigurable MEMS-based RF front end hardware and programmable modem will lead to the ultimate flexibility and adaptiveness of missile communication systems. This project will develop a road map for the ultimate total integration of the RF front end and digital back end using silicon micromachining technology.
