The solicitation seeks to develop and demonstrate a covert solution for high bandwidth link capacity for agile, airborne platforms through dynamic beam adjustment, and frequency mobility along the 60GHz oxygen absorption line. MaXentric has teamed up with FIU to develop an innovative, efficient, and scalable architecture, which combines a novel wideband phased array antenna design, with an efficient multiple user beamforming architecture, combined with a dynamic link management scheme for adaptively managing the trade space between covertness and connectivity of a communications and control link.The successful demonstration of an adaptive approach to monitor link dynamics, and optimize the datalink conditions in real time, can aid commercial and military wireless communications networks to improve interoperability and robustness in spectrally challenged environments.
