AbstractUltra Specialist RF (Herley Industries) has developed a novel, low cost programmable datalink-sensor combination which enables high precision tracking, telemetry communications, and control for airborne platforms using line of sight RF. This technology provides a highly reliable and resilient alternative to GPS-based navigation and tracking using relative position through an application of communications waveform and sensor technology with transponder architectures. Ultra views this technology as applicable to any platform requiring Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) where GPS may not be available or reliable. This paper will identify the commercial and government applications pushing current technological boundaries. Ultra specializes in providing application-engineered bespoke solutions in the defense, security, critical detection, maritime, C4ISTAR-EW, military and commercial aerospace, nuclear and industrial sensors markets.
