Rockwell Collins wins $3.1 million contract to make military radio smaller, skinner, cheaper

Rockwell Collins has won a $3.1 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop technology that will reduce the size, weight, power and cost, or SWAP-C, of software defined radios.

“Current software defined radios provide military customers with faster, more robust communication because they operate over wide frequency bandwidths. However, there remains a strong need to reduce SWAP-C,” said John Borghese, vice president, Advanced Technology Center for Rockwell Collins.

“Current designs use filtering to prevent unwanted signals, but it comes at the expense of a larger, more expensive and power consuming transmitter. The new transmitter being developed by Rockwell Collins will prevent unwanted harmonics from occurring in the first place,” he said.
