There is increasing interest in making broader use of the millimeter wave frequency band for communications on small mobile platforms where narrow antenna beams from small radiating apertures provide enhanced communication security. Today’s millimeter wave systems, however, are not user friendly and are designed to be platform specific, lacking interoperability and are thus reserved for only the most complex platforms. To expand the use of millimeter wave phased-arrays and make them broadly applicable across DoD systems, many technical challenges must be addressed, including wideband frequency coverage, precision beam pointing, user discover and mesh networking.

To jump-start innovation and foster forward-looking collaborations across the U.S. electronics community, DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office will host a three-day event that will bring together those most impacted by the coming inflection in Moore’s Law. The 2019 ERI Summit will highlight the technical achievements of ERI programs, support continued research collaborations, and offer opportunities to solicit community input on new efforts.
The Digital RF Battlespace Emulator (DRBE) program aims to create the world’s first, large-scale, virtual RF environment for developing, training, and testing advanced radio frequency (RF) systems. The DRBE system will seek to enable numerous RF systems such as radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems to interact with each other in a fully closed-loop RF environment.
