U.S. Air Force Awards Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Contract to Quasonix

Quasonix, LLC announced it has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract by the U.S. Air Force valued at almost $100,000 to increase the efficiency of non-coherent telemetry demodulators. Despite the development of new modulation techniques (ARTM Tier I and Tier II) with higher spectral efficiency, the waveforms are not yet in widespread use in the telemetry community due to concerns over the robustness of the demodulators for these waveforms. Increasing the utilization of the ARTM Tier I and Tier II waveforms requires the development of demodulators which offer the robust performance of the traditional non-coherent Tier 0 demodulators which have earned the confidence of the flight test community over the past three decades.
