Abstract
Nomadics will conduct a study to determine the feasibility and best approach of implementing a system of shipboard data networking that would be built on the HYDRA system and support audio and video transmission. Nomadics is well positioned to completethe study and to implement systems that support the likely findings of such a study conducted by us or others. We are not only experts in wireless systems and networking, but further we have solid strategic alliances with M/A COM, the licensees of theEDACS technology on which HYDRA is based. While the practical transmission of audio and video using the HYDRA radiating transmission line approach poses significant challenges, we have already conceptualized solutions to many of those obstacles. Further,we believe that our proposed approach of working closely with Navy personnel and with realistic scenarios will go a long way in ensuring the success of the proposed project. While the proposed study is directed at a very specific application in a limitedenvironment, the methods of solving some of the shipboard problems that are likely to evolve from the study will have application in many other settings in which wireless communications and wireless networking are employed, especially where video isinvolved. The template device for the study is a wireless headset, which will be useful wherever wireless communications in a noisy or noise-restricted environment is required.
