Rockwell Collins has been awarded a three-year contract valued at $3.1 million to develop technology that will dramatically reduce the size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) of software defined radios.
“Current software defined radios provide military customers with faster, more robust communication because they operate over wide frequency bandwidths. However, there remains a strong need to reduce SWAP-C,” said John Borghese, vice president, Advanced Technology Center for Rockwell Collins. “Working hand-in-hand with DARPA, we’ll be developing and demonstrating a new transmitter that overcomes one of the most prevalent technology challenges – the need to assure a spectrally compliant signal is being transmitted over the airways.”
Borghese stated, “Current designs use filtering to prevent unwanted signals, but it comes at the expense of a larger, more expensive and power consuming transmitter. The new transmitter being developed by Rockwell Collins will prevent unwanted harmonics from occurring in the first place.”
Rockwell Collins will be using a circuit topology that depends on Diverse Accessible Heterogeneous Integration (DAHI) Foundry Technology to achieve the high levels of integration necessary for harmonic cancellation. Using this technique, Rockwell Collins will build a circuit that is very small, yet still provides high power and broadband operation.
Rockwell Collins recently delivered the Patrol Persistent Surveillance System (PPSS) to the Australian Army for constant monitoring of threats against military bases. “This system has provided the eyes and ears for Australian Defence Forces operating in potentially hazardous regions where information is critical to mission success,” said Colin Mahoney, senior vice president of International & Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins
