Executive Summary

The growing use of small form factor Unmanned Arial Systems (UAS) in theater presents severe co-channel interference issues with today's radio technology. This paper addresses this concern by describing multiuser detection receiver technology and its application to the Common Data Link (CDL) ISR waveform protocol. By equipping CDL radios with MUD receiver technology developed under the DARPA Interference Multiple Access Communications Program, the authors show a significant reduction in spectrum pre planning requirements and increases in spectral efficiency.
