GIRD Systems, Inc. is developing a sophisticated, highly portable HF communications waveform that enables much higher throughput far beyond that of the current standardized wideband HF solutions. In Phase I GIRD performed extensive R&D, modeling, and simulations to verify the new waveform’s performance. Realistic over-the-air test scenarios are being conducted during Phase II. The validation prototype platform being developed under this SBIR program is a software defined radio targeting existing SDR military HF radio platforms as the transition radios. GIRD is seeking to partner with HF radios suppliers interested in advancing their technology and capabilities. The intended defense application is tactical HF radios used by the Marines. GIRD Systems is a small defense contractor that is innovative, competent, and agile in satisfying DoD’s signal processing and communications needs.
GIRD Systems has developed a novel anti-jam waveform for maritime environments with high J/S ratios with throughput of several Mbps. The highly flexible waveform is parameterizable for different channel conditions and throughput. GIRD Systems is an innovative and agile small business satisfying DoD’s signal processing and communications needs. The target application is line-of-sight (LOS) communications between Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) and mission packages for the Multiple Vehicle Communication System (MVCS). The anti-jam LOS waveform has been demonstrated in the laboratory with worst case conditions. The new waveform needs to be ported into an existing military radio platform. We are seeking input from the end customer and DoD prime contractors.
