Abstract
Commercial wireless local area networks provide the Air Force the opportunity to lower network infrastructure costs, while allowing the user increased mobility and flexibility. The key factor limiting deployments of these IEEE 802.11 standard based networks is security. In this Phase I project Fidelity Comtech is proposing an innovative physical layer solution that will integrate an IEEE 802.11 compliant access point with an extremely low-cost phased array. This competitively priced solution will limit the physical access to the wireless network.
