Abstract
During the course of this project, the unique advantages of software defined radios (SDRs), such as scalability and reconfigurability, will be applied to implement extremely compact communications systems for the MKV program. A key enabling technology for these radio systems, RF microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), will also be developed to reduce size and weight while increasing power handling of critical communications components. The combined benefits of software defined radios and MEMS-based tunable filters will enable substantial improvements in miniaturization, performance, and flexibility. These advancements will be key enablers for current and future generations of MKV communications systems.
