In addition to modifying, enhancing and maintaining the current AFRL
NAVWAR Testbed capabilities in the
Advanced Concepts Exploration (ACE)
facility, the program calls for developing and demonstrating algorithms and
technology to optimize position, velocity, time and frequency for airborne
platforms at the sensor aperture for collaborative passive radar, signals intelligence (SIGINT) and EW techniques and
systems. The ACE facility and NAVWAR
Testbed will be required to perform comprehensive evaluation of a wide variety
of anti-jam systems, including, but not
limited to: Small Antenna System (SAS);
Joint Precision Approach and Landing
System (JPALS); Integrated GPS Antenna System (GAS); Reaper; Predator;
Small Diameter Bomb (SDB); Massive
Ordinance Penetrator (MOP); F-15; F-16;
A-10; B-2; and the Joint Air-to-Surface
Strike Missile (JASSM).
The contractor will also be required
to develop GNSS anti-jam antenna simulation technologies, as well as to design and develop prototype hardware
for risk reduction and proof-of concept,

including the development of a small
size, weight, power, and cost (SWAP-C)
NAVWAR testbed for lab, SIL, and flight
test/training applications. The goal is
to develop a ruggedized and reconfigurable testbed with at least 50%-reduced
SWAP-C from the current Fieldable
Antenna Wavefront Simulator (AWFS)
Next Generation (FANG) Modular Design
(FANG-MD).
The solicitation number is: RFI-AFRLRQKSR-2016-0003. The point of contact
is Alexander Vanioukov, (937) 713-9978,

DARPA SOLICITS "SPECTRUM
COLLABORATION CHALLENGE"
PROPOSALS
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has released a pair
of Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs)
for its Spectrum Collaboration Challenge
(SC2) initiative, which aims to demonstrate the software and hardware technologies needed to ensure that military,
government and civilian wireless devices and systems will have full access

to an increasingly crowded electromagnetic spectrum in the future.
According to a DARPA program description, "Competitors will reimagine
spectrum access strategies and develop
a new wireless paradigm in which radio
networks will autonomously collaborate and reason about how to share the
RF spectrum, thereby avoiding interference and jointly exploiting opportunities to achieve the most efficient use
of the available spectrum. SC2 teams
will develop these breakthrough capabilities by taking advantage of recent
advances in artificial intelligence (AI)
and machine learning, and the expanding capacities of software-defined
radios. Ultimately this competition
aims not only to challenge innovators
in academia and business to produce
breakthroughs in collaborative AI, but
also to catalyze a new spectrum paradigm that can help usher in an era of
spectrum abundance. The Spectrum
Collaboration Challenge will host a
competitive tournament-style event
each year for three years, ending in
early 2020."
