Abstract: The proposed effort will target the design and development of a high-power microwave (HPM) emitter detector to be installed on a variety of platforms including ships, helos and UAS. The HPM detector will detect the presence of wideband and narrowband signals with short resolution times and low false alarm rates. In addition, the HPM detector will also estimate the position of the HPM source on the ground based on the angle of arrival and position of the detector. The Phase 1 effort will focus on conceptual design and performance characterization using mainly simulations and limited laboratory testing. Phase 2 effort will focus on the hardware development and potential testing using HPM sources. Phase 3 effort will focus on SWaP reduction, and transitioning to programs of record. IAI brings to this effort its expertise in antenna design, wideband RF front-end and digital design, signal processing, and laboratory testing.
Benefits: Commercial applications of CRAWS include: Multi-Protocol, Direct-digital Communications Receivers (GPS/GNSS, Cell-phone) Synchronized multi-channel receivers for cell-phone or asset tracking
