The Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) SDRadar project is to develop a prototype sensor system to provide a resilient cognitive radar capability in congested electromagnetic environments (EME). To address these project goals we (ARL & AFRL) created a technical eco-system of government laboratories, academia partners and contractual vendors. This technical eco-system collaborated in developing the low-cost COTS SDRadar prototype consisting of a commercial National Instruments (NI) SDR (USRPx310) and architecture (LabVIEW) coding which is fully government-owned IP that can be leveraged by the DoD community to address a variety of radio frequency (RF) and radar applications related to spectrum dominance: dynamic spectrum access, spectrum sharing, and spectral situational awareness. The SDRadar leverages progress in open-architecture software defined radio hardware, radar machine learning, channel prediction, multi-objective optimization, notched waveform design, and reconfigurable RF front-end hardware to maximize radar performance.
