Abstract
ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a compact and very capable micro airborne relay system which will will extend broadband communications range and provide the ability to transfer multiple HD video and data streams beyond the horizon. We can leverage technology we have previously developed which will allow us to easily demonstrate feasibility and specify a new system designed for the relay task, as well as provide a complete solution. Modularity in our system design allows for the integration of new technologies as they become available. With sponsor support we have additional innovative solutions which can expand the concept of operations in the areas of satcomm relay, cellular relay, and transmit diversity. The resulting system will have SWaP capable of supporting small UAS with demanding communications relay tasks. BENEFIT: This system could provide a high bandwidth relay capability to allow extended range regional UAS surveillance operations including HD video, data transfer, and voice relay. The work in this proposal will also allow us to offer extended range capability for our existing subminiature high definition video product. Other innovations could be the basis for a new generation of beyond line of sight surveillance UAS, as well as long range aircraft to aircraft broadband data communications.
