Abstract
Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (COFDM) continues to be a preferred solution for wireless broadband data transfer. Currently many Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solutions are available with a wide range of performance optimizations from low cost 802.11.g using 64 carriers to more expensive Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial (DVB-T) solutions supporting over 8000 carriers. Advanced Ceramics Research, partnering with RTI's Center for Advance Networking Research, proposes to leverage their existing joint research UAV RF links, optimizing for a low cost and long distance RF link for expendable SL-UAV applications. The phase I effort will investigate existing COTS technologies with limited modifications in conjunction with a highly efficient RF technology for reaching a 50 nautical mile range while minimizing the radio Doppler effects from motion of the P-3 and SL-UAV.
