SSCI awarded contract for Geolocation of RF Emitters
January 8, 2009 by news
WOBURN, MA, January 7, 2009 – Under Air Force SBIR topic F083-135, Scientific Systems has been awarded a Phase I contract to develop a radio frequency (RF) transmitter geolocation capability. Expanding SSCI’s partnership with key providers of defense technology, Raytheon Missile Systems will subcontract to Scientific Systems as part of this effort.
The program will produce a system for geolocating, associating, and tracking emitters associated with RF guided threats. The system opportunistically uses sensor measurements, enabling both improved geolocation, and applicability to a wide array of missions and sensor configurations. The system is designed to make use of existing and planned RWR hardware and, as such, incremental costs are kept low and there is a believable route to transition validated technology into practice.
Being funded to do this work moves Scientific Systems closer to its goal of enabling intelligent autonomy in unmanned systems by passively sensing available information which will help create actionable information that future unmanned systems could exploit.
