Abstract
The work conducted for this task was to provide literature review of applicable techniques and algorithms from industry and academia; including but not limited to foreign military research or demonstrations, journal articles, peer reviewed papers, credible conference publications and credible industry sources. These efforts were conducted for the DRDC Suffield Counter Unmanned Aerial System (CUAS) research program. Along with the literature review, Amtech Aeronautical Limited conducted a thorough market survey of applicable devices, instruments and products for the identification of Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Radio Frequency (RF) signals, Direction Finding (DF) and geolocation of UAS and Ground Control Station (GCS), on-board data processing and signal analysis, UAV payload devices for precise geolocation, communications and computing payloads necessary for data processing and transmission, and cost effective UAS for such deployment. Recommendations of the most technically feasible approach for pursuing an airborne GCS localization system, potential equipment options and high-level refence designs containing electrical, software and mechanical aspects are made. This work was completed under contract W7702-145682/001/EDM.
