PROJECT SUMMARY FOR 2002 RD-CX-K004

Vanu, Inc, proposes to develop an automated testing capability for the Radio Frequency (RF)components of a handheld Software Defines Radio(SDR) previously developed from partial NIJ funding. The manual testing of these RF components is currently a cost driver, which if not addressed will impede any meaningful deployment of these SDRs in the future. The first prototype handheld SDR will be test deployed with school safety officers in the Lexington MA school system. The cost savings of these SDRs as a result of this automated testing capability will
enable a greater test deployment in other school systems along with other pubic safety officials
