Whether in defense settings like electronic intelligence applications, such as radar warning receivers, or to keep up with many devices in the Internet of Things, ultra wideband receivers (UWR), which have large instantaneous bandwidths, have many advantages over narrowband but tunable superheterodyne architectures.  In this Phase II proposal, Oceanit proposes to develop and test a hardware prototype for the UWR defined during the Phase I period.  The proposed system extends the instantaneous bandwidth of an existing radio frequency (RF) receiver with compressed sensing algorithms and modified front end hardware.  In Phase I, the feasibility of the proposed hardware and algorithms were demonstrated on relevant waveforms.  The focus of Phase II is to optimize both the hardware design and algorithms, implement them, and integrate them into a single hardware prototype.  Once integrated, the performance of the prototype will be quantified on relevant waveforms and center frequencies.
