A Low Band Alternatives Analysis
(LBAA), conducted under OPNAV N2/
N6 direction, concluded that the best
balance of affordability and capability for the Low-band increment could
be achieved through a major modification to the Low-band Pod currently in
use with the AN/ALQ-99. Modifications
identified in the SOW include development of three new, key subsystems: amplifier (AMP), antenna/radome (A/R),
and controller/receiver/exciter. The
CES will be partitioned into two phases,
with phase 1 examining AMP and A/R
technologies, conducting design/performance/constraint trade-offs, and
concluding with breadboard designs.
Phase 2 will involve the fabrication
and testing of the breadboards. At a
minimum, the breadboards must consist
of those components identified as Critical Technology Elements (CTE) for A/R
and amplifier concept designs, but may
also contain non-CTE components as
necessary to demonstrate A/R and amplifier subsystem goals and substantiate
cooling, size, weight and power (CSWaP)
allocations. The Increment 2 concept

exportation studies are anticipated to
span a 24-month period of performance
(10-month Phase 1 / 14-month Phase 2).
The LBAA also stated a need for early
risk-reduction work to validate the recommended approach and demonstrate
that the associated CTEs and their readiness levels are understood. As a result,
concept exportation studies are being
conducted to validate the findings of
the LBAA, and the SOW package also includes a self-assessment of the technology maturity required to achieve TRL 6.
Total estimated funding for the Increment 2 effort (for the award of up to
2 contracts per subsystem) is $29 million, with $8 million in FY2014, $15 million in FY2015 and $6 million in FY2016.
Responses to the SOW are due by January 9, 2014. - J. Haystead

SERVICES OUTLINE INITIATIVES
TO DEAL WITH EMS
MANAGEMENT CHALLENGE
At the 50th Annual AOC International Symposium and Convention, held
in Washington October 28-30, much of
the discussion focused the continuing

challenges faced by US military services to guarantee, maintain and manage
access to the electromagnetic spectrum
(EMS). And while many of the discussions featured some of the technical
solutions in the works to allow for more
dynamic use of spectrum, in the final
session titled, "Spectrum/EW Battle
Management Initiatives," key personnel from each Services and the Joint
warfighting community discussed their
current efforts to deal with EMS management challenges.
Col Steve Ling, USAF, director of
the STRATCOM Joint Electronic Warfare
Center, chaired the session and framed
the discussion with description of the
current shift toward Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (JEMSO),
which is being used in the joint environment to create a unified concept
that merges EW and operational spectrum management operations.
COL Jim Ekvall, chief, Electronic
Warfare Division, US Army Headquarters
G-3/5/7, detailed the Army's approach to
JEMSO and talked about Cyber EM Activities (CEMA), which blends EW, EW

SMART
ATTITUDE!

Industry's Smallest High Performance Radar Altimeter.
As a leader in flight instrumentation, our most advanced Radar Altimeter
(4503-1) provides uncompromised accuracy for low-altitude terrain. Its
compact size, weight, cost and operational performance over a wide range
of environmental conditions make it an intelligent choice for manned or
unmanned vehicles. Critical features include:
range
resolution of one foot or better

When high performance instrumentation is required,
Herley is the smart choice.
