Army approaches industry for ideas on RF interference mitigation in future electronic warfare

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md., 24 July 2014. U.S. Army researchers are reaching out to industry for ideas on how to reduce or eliminate RF interference in future electronic warfare (EW) systems.

Officials of the Army Contracting Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., issued a request for information this week for the Market Research and Request for Information (RFI) For RF Interference Mitigation (RIM) solutions program.

The RIM solutions RFI, issued on behalf of the Army Product Manager for Electronic Warfare Integration, is seeking ideas from industry on a potential future program to develop, evaluate, and test RIM solutions to support electronic warfare and blue force communications system compatibility.

Army EW experts say they will consider all types of mitigation solutions such as low profile integrated switch frequency channelizers, tunable filters, system agnostic interference cancellers, and integrated sub-assembly modules.

For now, experts want to identify companies with technology that they believe will mitigate compatibility issues arising from EW systems operating closely to one another, as well as to identify an evolutionary capability over time.

Army EW experts particularly are interested in low-profile, high-power, small-size frequency discrete band reject and band pass topologies; low-profile, high-power, high-speed frequency-agile band reject and band pass topologies; integrated system-agnostic solutions; small-form-factor high-power interference canceller; and high-power modules with integrated frequency-agile co-site mitigation.

In addition, Army experts are interested in RIM applique solutions; and modular circuit card assemblies focused on RF compatibility with EW systems used on vehicles and for infantry warfighters operating on foot.
