Opportunistic Passive RF DCL Technologies

Passive RF detection systems that exploit mobile cell network, HDTV and other digital RF waveforms. Digital waveforms, from VHF to millimeter waves, in virtually all relevant areas of operation offer a novel and distributed source for Detection, Classification and Localization. This is viable using existing low cost commercial hardware processing technology from “Software Defined Radio” and “Internet of Things” markets. These classes of low cost, compact and low power devices are adapted to detect airborne (cooperative or non-cooperative) vehicles and measurement of atmospheric and metrological properties by creating phenomenologically based time-frequency representations. Processing these time-frequency representations with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks trained using Transfer Learning enables classification, localization and tracking of air vehicles, and atmospheric and meteorological properties.


0 Base Design, LLC is a design and engineering organization specializing in electro-mechanical systems development, energy conversion and recovery technologies, and complex real-time sensor and processing systems. We focus on highly functional design with aesthetic appeal. Our designs are derived from engineering analysis with attention to functional requirements and form. We develop systems that sense, process, and exploit light, electro-magnetism, chemistry,  gas dynamics and fluid mechanics. Our core expertise includes forensic system analysis, data analytics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, multi-physic simulation and systems engineering. We have extensive skills in the development of robust architectures for real-time sensor and processing systems.
