Abstract
This SBIR Phase I proposal requests $99739 for Flight Safety Technologies, Inc. to investigate the feasibility and all-weather capability of a novel radar concept as an active, non-cooperative SAA sensor for UAVs. The concept radar, which we call Unicorn, is a narrow-band pulsed radar operating around a center frequency of 5.145 GHz in the aviation C-band, which has been approved for this developmental use by the FAA and FCC. In this proposed Phase I effort, we will perform concept and preliminary design trade-off studies to support application of the Unicorn architecture to the Global Hawk UAV as an all-weather sensor, while using existing field test data to validate the modeling and simulation tools used in the design effort.
