Our rapid prototyping approach allows technology to be explored at a lower cost and short schedule. It has many applications for the Department of Defense: delivery Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) to address urgent warfighter needs; develop concepts with prototypes to properly scope and define system capabilities prior to large acquisition; explore how to experiment with technology to address mission needs; and explore new technologies to increase technical readiness level (TRL).
Rapid prototyping can provide answers needed to make acquisition and operational decisions like: Is the solution viable? Is it cost effective? Is it disruptive? At Cosmic AES we work with our customers to find out faster.
Our Rapid Prototyping portfolio spans a broad range of space communications solutions:
Terrestrial geolocation of push-to-talk radios
Satellite signal generation in small transportable format
