The Department of Defense is partnering with small business to develop a powerful new tool for tracking down adversaries.
Virginia-based Applied Signals Intelligence - with support from multiple services, including the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Program - developed a direction finder for pinpointing enemy transmissions that is compact enough to fit on a small remotely piloted aircraft.
Until now, integrating a tool this complex into small RPAs wasn’t an option.
Initially an Army SBIR topic, the technology went through additional development under the Navy and Air Force SBIR programs.
