SBIR Success Story

Echo Ridge’s GPS-contested PNT technology solution has been featured in a SBIR success story published by the Air Force.  The article reviews the technology and recent field demonstration performed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Low Probability of Intercept PNT Augmentation Network

Echo Ridge LLC has been awarded a Phase II SBIR contract from the Air Force under topic F16-091 "Low Probability of Intercept PNT Augmentation Network".    Under this effort, Echo Ridge is developing, prototyping, and field testing a Low Probability of Intercept/Detect (LPI/LPD) Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) augmentation system using a hybrid frequency hopping, spread spectrum signal-based waveform.  The LPI PNT augmentation will include the ability to take advantage of partial GPS availability, and transparently and seamlessly maintain PNT performance.  Both the beacons and user equipment will be based on SDR technology, allowing PNT and communications functionality to be hosted economically on a common platform. 

Software Defined Radio Test Bed

Echo Ridge, LLC has been awarded a contract from the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Solicitation Number N00173-16-R-DH01, “Software Defined Radio Test Bed”. Under this effort, Echo Ridge will provide a complete Software Defined Radio (SDR) Test Bed system, including equipment, engineering support consisting of system design and tailoring/configuration, technical documentation, delivery, setup and training for the test system. The SDR Test Bed will allow NRL engineers to perform high fidelity laboratory testing of RF devices/equipment/systems, including effectively evaluating algorithms on software defined radios (SDRs) in diverse real-world RF environments prior to field deployment. The SDR Test Bed will be based on the Echo Ridge DYnamic Spectrum Environment emulator ("DYSE") product and will include channel emulators, software defined radios, RF enclosures and equipment racks. DYSE is an existing, proven Echo Ridge test asset that emulates varied realistic RF environments in real-time to support testing of a broad variety of wireless devices and systems in the convenience of a controlled laboratory environment. The test bed will include provision for simultaneous testing of up to 24 GNU-radio-compatible SDRs.
