Rockwell Collins has started a new phase of research into analog-to-digital converters for radios under a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency contract.

In a post on FedBizOpps, DARPA said its RADER program is intended to develop power-efficient and high-speed photonic analog-to-digital-converters that can be operated remotely.

Rockwell Collins said Tuesday it was the only company to successfully demonstrate a converter in the project’s first phase. The company said the second phase calls for the company to increase the capabilities of existing technology for digital software-defined radios.

“In this stage of the RADER program, we'll be working to shrink the A/D technology that we developed in phase 1 onto a single silicon device,“ said John Borghese, vice president, advanced technology center for Rockwell Collins.

Rockwell Collins said research will conclude at the end of 2012 under the $5.3 million contract with DARPA.
