Abstract
Silvus Technologies and the University of California Los Angeles propose a system design and a rapid development path for the Regional Radio Frequency Attenuation and Interference Monitor, or ‘RF-AIM’. RF-AIM is intended to provide continuous wide area awareness of RF spectrum availability in the presence of arbitrary interference and attenuation from natural or man-made causes. The technical effort comprises the integration of key state-of-the-art technologies: a compact ultra-wideband HF-mmWave RF multiplexor, a very low SWaP wideband RF sensor, a distributed mesh data fusion algorithm, and a self-healing long-range high data-rate mesh network with interference avoidance capability and secure user command and control at any node. Phase 1 of the effort will complete the analysis, design and simulation of the integrated system while Phase 2 will produce a prototype sensor mesh network and demonstrate the interference and attenuation tracking capabilities in a representative environment.
