Researchers at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will this month begin looking for technology that will let wireless communications work even through the most extreme and nasty interference.
The agency said on Sept. 20 it will detail its Communications Under Extreme RF Spectrum Conditions (CommEx) program which looks to develop wireless communication networks that can operate under severe and complex interference, anticipating traditional interference and communications threats, high power threats, as well as novel interference resulting from new adaptive threats, DARPA stated.
The CommEx program will assess next generation and beyond jamming threats and then develop advanced interference suppression and avoidance technologies to successfully communicate in the presence of severe, traditional, and novel types of interference that are orders-of-magnitude more severe than what are currently addressed by the most advanced systems, DARPA stated.
DARPA anticipates releasing a Broad Agency Announcement with more details on the program ahead of the meeting.
