Next Generation Tactical Waveform Development

The Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate (S&TCD) of the U.S. Army has awarded Rutgers University an 8-month contract with an initial budget of $71,395. The WINLAB Rutgers University team is led by Wade Trappe and will support the Army's development of a next generation tactical waveform. The effort will involve the development of protocols and algorithms involving new physical layer methods, as well as the prototyping of such technologies S&TCD Cognitive Networking, Directional Networking to support transitioning to Army mid-tier waveforms and Next-Generation/multi-function/hybrid waveform programs.
