Abstract
Toyon Research Corporation proposes to research and develop a low-cost, miniature direction finding (Mini-DF(TM)) module and build a proof-of-concept system. The primary focus of this Phase I effort will be to locate cellular and wireless communicationsand RF emissions in the 2.0 MHz to 3.0 GHz frequency range. The Mini-DF module will accept input from an external receiver that is using a single DF capable antenna, multiple omni-directional antennas, or a combination thereof. When possible, timedifference of arrival (TDOA) and differential-Doppler (DD) techniques will be used to augment the performance of the DF measurements and to further improve the relative bearing estimates. The system will also provide a relative range estimate providedsufficient information exists. The Mini-DF system will be designed and built using only commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technology. The final product will feature a PDA-type interface that is simple to use and will be capable of being upgraded throughsoftware changes.
