AbstractSPAWAR requires a high fidelity simulation of Radio Security Services (RSS) to enhance testing of Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) networking waveforms. Waveforms and enhancements are evaluated using a JTRS Surrogate Radio (JSR). We propose to modify a JSR through installation of radio security simulation software and SCA compatible Application Programming Interfaces (API) developed on a previous SBIR Phase II project. We will also modify the waveform to interface with an unclassified, high-fidelity hardware device simulator. This allows the modified JSR to evaluate networking waveforms including radio security with higher fidelity and allow the development and testing of waveforms including interfaces to security devices. As part of the work we will interface devices and software to networking waveform software currently under test and evaluation by SPAWAR. We also propose trade studies evaluating modification of a second waveform with different technical characteristics with the simulated radio security software and device during the Option. During the Option we plan on demonstrating an improved security architecture employing HAWCS(r) technology previously investigated on AF03-098 Phase II.
