Vencore Labs has extended its involvement to the third phase and received a $5million award for the Advanced Radio Frequency Mapping Program, a program supported by the Air Force Research Lab and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Vencore Labs will be responsible for developing software associated with distributed command and control; management of the RadioMap tasking; and software agents for C2 of RadioMap tasks on RF platforms. Vencore Labs performs as a subcontractor to Lockheed Martin on this program.
RadioMap is intended to deliver RF information without requiring the deployment of additional radio equipment, and without interfering with the primary mission of existing radio equipment.
Similar to maps that illustrate current traffic conditions, RadioMap intends to develop technology that visually overlays spectrum information on a map enabling rapid frequency deconfliction and maximizing use of available spectrum for communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems.
“We are proud to have been involved with this highly innovative program since its inception,” said Petros Mouchtaris, president of Vencore Labs. “Vencore Labs plans to continue expanding the capabilities and maturing the technology we developed for phases one and two of this effort. This third phase includes plans for testing RadioMap on RF-capable equipment that is typical in current forward-deployed environments, along with a field test and demonstration.”
