Verus Research has been awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract from the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for “Optimized Waveforms for X-Band Missile-Defense Radars.” The objective of the MDA effort is to research and develop X-band waveforms that are both producible and optimal for missile-defense applications by leveraging the current state-of-the-art in commercially available radar electronics.
To meet MDA’s needs, Verus Research will leverage its extensive background in high power microwave effects modeling and simulation, test, and assessment. The program will develop bench-top hardware-in-the-loop (HITL) simulator architectures which incorporate state-of-the-art physics-based models. These architectures will then test, validate, and quantify the performance of novel radar waveforms in simulated operational environments during many-on-many (MoM) engagement interaction scenarios.
This is Verus Research’s first contract from MDA. Chief Technology Officer Dr. J. Mark DelGrande noted “it’s exciting to see new customers come to Verus Research for the creation of novel solutions that matter.”
