Abstract
Installation of a counter IED jammer system on each individual Army vehicle has caused electromagnetic interference between the jammer and friendly communication systems. A fundamental enabling technology called active interference cancellation, which enables simultaneous jamming and communication capabilities under changes in the threat conditions and operating environment is needed. In this program GIRD Systems will perform a trade study and simulation effort to identify various mitigation techniques and evaluate their performance to the interference situation described in the solicitation. Based on customer input and system requirements, the most promising technologies and those with the greatest potential for performance improvement will be selected for further development in the Phase II portion of this program.
