Abstract
The Navy"s fleet relies heavily on UHF SATCOM for communications in Navy"s worldwide operations. Narrowband interference is a crippling factor in many UHF SATCOM channels. When even a single channel is rendered unusable by interference, many users are potentially affected, owing to the multiple-access scheme. In this Phase II program GIRD Systems plans to revise a previously demonstrated narrowband interference excision algorithm to make it more robust, and to install and test this mitigation device on Navy UHF SATCOM terminals. A design that accommodates up to four simultaneous channels will be implemented.
