NuWaves has been awarded a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I contract to develop Non-Invasive Radio Frequency (RF) System Characterization for the U.S. Navy's Airborne Tactical Data Systems unit. Critical to national defense and the safety of the warfighter, the RAASEM (Rapid Automated Analysis System for Electromagnetic Measurements) will automate the process of characterizing the performance and potential vulnerabilities of military RF systems. The results from the RAASEM analysis will be an enabler to further strengthen the military’s RF communications and electronic attack systems and ensure that they remain in control of the electromagnetic battlespace.
The SBIR program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.
