Abstract
Freedom Photonics proposes to develop a novel wireless communications system based on free-space-optical (FSO) technology that can provide aircraft maintainers the communications reliability and bandwidth that they need. The goal of this SBIR program is to develop such an optical wireless communication system, which should have the following attributes: high-speed data rates, communication coverage area as far as 300 feet radius from the aircraft being maintained, highly reliable communication, low probability of intercept (LPI), low C-SWaP transceivers, so that they can integrate with existing maintainer radio communications equipment and ruggedized design for military operation.
