Abstract
Short range line-of-site communication is an integral part of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is little if any short-range line-of-site communications infrastructure that can support these missions. The objective of this project is to design and eventually build a small (less that 64 cubic inches, targeted) lightweight (less than 1 lb. targeted), man portable, channelized tactical repeater system for operation in the VHF and UHF frequency bands. The system will support voice and data both encrypted and un-encrypted radio relay over line-of-site. In Phase I, Nomadics will research and assess conventional repeater techniques and develop methods to minimize weight, size, power requirements, and cost while maximizing performance of the conventional repeater system. Nomadics will the design the repeater system with special consideration of urban and rural radio path requirements, antenna requirements and availability, modes of operation including voice, data, and encrypted voice and data, and deployment methods including hand, weapon delivery, robotic, UAV, and air emplacement.
