Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II proposal leverages technologies developed under SBIR Topic AF06-273 to develop cost-effective technology for Radio Frequency (RF) signal distribution over fiber onboard submarines. The technology has the ability to reduce RF signal loss over long distances and across a wide frequency range; reduce the number of hull penetrations; support mast consolidation; and reduce installation costs. The RF over fiber technology will be applied to achieve low cost, efficient, and compact distribution of high bandwidth signals throughout the ship. 3Pi will identify an affordable set of candidate components for replacement and provide a proposed high-level design approach for system improvement using the AF06-273 technologies. 3Pi will then apply these technologies to develop mechanical and engineering models and prototype designs for RF system components. 3Pi will conduct a demonstration of the implemented models and prototypes and document performance of implemented functionality in test reports.
