Abstract
Scientic, Inc. proposes to enhance interceptor communications through the utilization of an advanced miniature software defined radio (SDR) interceptor data link. Scientic is leading the industry in this area by utilizing commercial electronics developed for mobile computing and telephony, enhancing the capabilities of interceptor communications while reducing size and cost. Scientic personnel have developed processes and techniques to miniaturize a reconfigurable computing platform which has significantly reduced size, weight, power, and cost (SWAPc) over currently fielded interceptor communication platforms. During Phase I, Scientic and its large business partner, Rockwell Collins, will develop a method in which to reduce the footprint of the RF radio component and meet the performance specs as indicated in the topic solicitation.
