Abstract
The US Navy in topic N05-042, has identified the need to develop and demonstrate a shipboard, V-band wireless local area network (V-WLAN) with high data capacity and favorable propagation characteristics to avoid detection. Proposed is a WLAN network operating at 60 GHz that is light-weight, low-cost, highly reliable and secure from detection and jamming, operates in smoke, fog or dusty environment, and operates with low power drain. The company proposes during Phase I to carry out such a trade study to (1) define the link budget requirements for various V-WLAN configurations,(2) consider the Anti-Jamming/Low Probability of Intercept requirements, (2) consider operational effects of inclement environments, and multi-path effects, (3) consider operational ease and variability of use, including size, weight, product ruggedness, and power, (4) evaluate the COTS options for low cost implementation, and (5) perform a preliminary system configuration design leading to a low cost solution having adequate performance for the mission. Optional work includes a feasibility demonstration.
