Directed COM & EW by Digital multichannel AESA

Reference number
Coordinator Saab AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 750 000
Project duration September 2023 - June 2024
Status Ongoing
Venture Strengthened Swedish aeronautical research and development

Purpose and goal

The project shall act as a pre-study aimed at overarching previously performed directed datalink work within NFFP7 call2 with the upcoming NFFP8 call2 continuation. Overall aim, is to raise the existing TRL for the network topology control protocol and waveform sufficiently to enable longer term realization of developed technology on demonstrator hardware.

Expected results and effects

Special focus is needed on the physical and network layer functionality, where additional analytic work and further extended simulation campaigns are required to incorporate topics vital for actual hardware realization, including physical properties, computational requirements and other real-time associated topics.

Planned approach and implementation

With regard to identified topics and produced material (in NFFP7) derive suitable work plan to raise the TRL within the next project phase. In accordance to previously adopted ways of working, the development of the network protocol and the waveform is conducted in parallel, to ensure the cross-talk necessary for mutual adaptation. New here is the coordination with the NFFP8 pre-study of the hardware platform, a wideband, digital multichannel AESA. The concepts will be iteratively tried in tactical simulations of realistic scenarios and refined according to the outcome.
