Abstract
Azure Summit's approach to this problem is to develop a TICE interference cancellation device that can be inserted between any SIGINT antenna and SIGINT receiver without requiring modifications to existing designs. Azure Summit brings several different technology approaches and tools to bear for this problem, including an Analog Adaptive Equalizer (currently prototyped in the lab), and an Analog Beamformer being studied and to be prototyped soon for a DARPA program, with two other candidate approaches under current study or development. In Phase I of this SBIR, Azure will take a step back and perform a trade study to investigate the applicability and feasibility of each of these technologies to the Army SIGINT cosite problem. We will select the appropriate techniques given the specifics of the problem, and the SWaP/cost constraints, and perform simulations to quantify the expected performance. We will develop a TICE system architecture and system specification, and document everything in a final report.
