The warfighter of the future will require reliable, easily deployable, decentralized high-speed wireless communication networks for high quality video, imagery, voice, and position data to ensure an information advantage in combat. To meet these demands, mobile ad hoc networks MANETs have the potential to support the high bandwidths available at millimeter wave mmWave frequencies. Unfortunately, validating many ideas in mmWave systems has remained a challenge. In this equipment grant, our major goal was to improve our ability to prototype mmWave communication and radar systems. Through the grant, we purchased key pieces of mmWave communication and radar equipment. This equipment is allowing us to advance the state-of-the-art in communication and radar research. Ongoing research has been using that equipment to test new ideas in joint communication and radar, as well as to develop new algorithms for radar sensor fusion.
