Abstract:

Use FOBWDM-tm to reduce 14 antennas to 4 multiband antennas and 12 radios to 2 WITS-tm compliant digital multichannel radios, while enhancing existing performance and reducing antenna system cost, size and weight. Replace coaxial cable and legacy stovepipe radios with an integrated fiber solution. Reduce weight. Reduce time and complexity to wire the airframe. Reduce total lifetime costs. Improve overall system performance by replacing legacy stovepipe radios and antennas with an integrated, reprogrammable radio and multiband antenna solution.
