AbstractThe WASP-III Advanced Reconnaissance Device Network (WARDN) is a miniaturized VHF/UHF emitter geolocation system targeted for installation on micro-UAV platforms. The Mav6 design approach of embedded antenna design, compact RF circuit design, and load balancing the signal processing and geolocation tasks between the airborne payload and the ground unit enables significant size, weight, and power optimizations. Designed with the WASP-III payload form factor in mind, WARDN can be installed in larger UAS such as the RQ-11 Raven and the Boeing ScanEagle. The Mav6 proposed design is flexible, cost effective, manufacturable, and scalable across various TTPs and CONOPs involving one or several UAVs. WARDN will provide the operators with RF situational awareness to assist in tactical decision making on the go.
