Abstract

During the course of this direct Phase II program, Metamagnetics Inc. will develop, test, and validate an ultra-fast, low-loss, low-power threshold, high-power saturation, ferrite-based frequency selective limiter (FSL) capable of providing selective attenuation of HPM threats while simultaneously allowing friendly low-power signals of interest to pass.Metamagnetics will work closely with the Office of Naval Research and Naval Research Laboratory to develop, test, validate, and position the proposed technology on a path to a transition into relevant Navy programs of record. The proposed technology meets urgent US Navy needs for counter directed energy weapon attack and electronic warfare protection.
