Abstract
There is a critical need for a high performance receiver that knows where it is, knows where the NWR transmitting stations are, tunes itself to the local NWR station (especially in a mobile environment), provides weather and warnings in both audio and text, requires little-to-no setup and can communicate with other devices such as external alarms and network systems that can better warn its owner of impending disaster wherever they may be. This SBIR Phase I project covers the research directed toward designing, prototyping, and establishing the feasibility of such as receiver or family of receivers to establish proof-of-principle. In Phase II, a fully engineered receiver will be built and delivered to NOAA and potential commercialization partners
