Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $199,907)

The applicants propose to develop a "single-chip" architecture for a multi-band SDR radio with a P25 waveform. As well as being able to operate in multiple LE spectrum bands the prototype would be able to be upgraded in software (which has significant operational advantages over hardware updates).
