The Department of Defense has an "urgent need" for ways to protect satellite communications from radio frequency interference caused by mobile devices, radars and jammers, according to a U.S. Air Force small business technology transfer solicitation.

One goal is to "detect and identify attributes of emerging RFIs from pulsed radars, mobile terminals, base transceiver stations, and potential RF jammers," the Air Force said.

The Air Force is looking for methods to estimate the effects of RFI on satellite and aerial communications, as well as the impact of weather, and then come up with hardware and software solutions to mitigate the impact.
