Abstract
UHF SATCOM is a critical piece of the Navy"s worldwide communications operations. When in-band interference corrupts one or more channels, the ability to this system can be limited. GIRD Systems proposes the development of a digital signal processing system that removes interference between an antenna source and a satellite receiver. An algorithmic approach that has already been validated through simulation and hardware tests will be used. The system will act as a black box interface that will not require any modifications to the receiver software or feedback from the user. A design that supports processing all of the SATCOM channels in the UHF band will be implemented using an advanced FPGA-based hardware board with custom-developed firmware.
