Ensuring Built-in, Frequency-Hopping Spread-Spectrum, Wireless Network Security

John R. Vacca
The Sensors Directorate sponsored new technology developed by Robert Gold Comm Systems, Inc. (RGCS) under a Phase II Fast Track Small Business Innovation Research program. This technology provides powerful security protection for wireless computer networks, cell phones, and other radio communications. Benefits include highly secure communications with the overhead of encryption and selective addressability of receivers, individually or in groups [1].

1. Accomplishment

Dr. Gold developed a built-in, self-synchronizing, and selective addressing algorithm based on time-of-arrival (TOA) measurements of a frequency-hopping radio system. These algorithms ...
