PolyStrata Greenhouse GasRadiometer for Small Satellite Applications

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S20.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15
PI: Jennifer Arroyo

The goal of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the potential for our approach and mitigate program risks for future development efforts. To achieve this goal, we will evaluate system level trade-offs, then design and simulate the key components. The system trade study followed by requirement definition will evaluate radiometry architectures a...

Low Cost Electronically Steerable RF Missile Seeker

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-113
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: Steve Huettner

ABSTRACT:Active millimeter wave seekers are needed at a lower cost point in order to improve load-out for future air-ground missions. ?Our approach to developing a $15,000 RF seeker is to create a passive electronically-steerable antenna that is driven by COTS amplifiers and protected by COTS limiters and is built from low cost packaging techniq...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-141
Budget: 09/17/14 - 11/26/16
PI: Anatoliy Boryssenko

ABSTRACT: There is the growing demand for user terminals for mobile satellite telecommunication (SATCOM) applications including K/Ka dual-band SATCOM for unmanned and manned aircraft platforms. Nuvotronics is pleased to propose a two-year SBIR program to the Air Force for the development of a fully-electronically steerable array capable of scann...

High-Power Phase Shifter

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-034
Budget: 07/07/14 - 01/03/15
PI: Steve Huettner

High-power-handling, low-loss (1 dB) microwave phase shifters hold the key to affordable electronically steerable apertures for radar and communications, eliminating the need for active TR modules at every element. Nuvotronics proposes a solid-state approach which will provide loss performance equal to or better than the best demonstrated MEMS p...

Ku/Ka-Band Electrically-Scanned Line Array for Tri-Band Cloud and Precipitation Radar Applications

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S20.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Benjamin Cannon

A spaceborne radar system that operates simultaneously at multiple frequency bands from microwave through millimeter-wave frequencies can exploit the largely varying frequency response of electromagnetic radiation to various atmospheric conditions, thus forming a highly-capable remote sensing system for NASA earth science objectives such as clou...

High Efficiency Low Weight W-Band PolyStrata Antenna

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-087
Budget: 11/01/13 - 05/31/14
PI: Jean-Marc Rollin

Nuvotronics is proposing to Navy SBIR number N132-087 to develop novel high efficiency, light weight, low manufacturing cost 94 GHz antenna modules toward future Active Denial Technology systems. RF passive components based on waveguides are generally very low loss but are heavy, expensive to machine at high frequency and bulky. Components based...

PolyStrata based Fragmented Array Antenna for Next Generation Ka-band Phased Arrays

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-079
Budget: 09/19/13 - 06/19/14
PI: Hooman Kazemi

ABSTRACT: Our approach is to enable the proven fragmented antenna design from GTRI at Ka-band frequency range through the highly dimension controlled and low loss PolyStrata process at Nuvotronics. This will provide frequency scalability, connectivity to phased array electronics through the microcoax PolyStrata transmission lines and ultra-compa...

Antenna Design in PolyStrata for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-141
Budget: 08/15/13 - 05/16/14
PI: Anatoliy Boryssenko

ABSTRACT: The Nuvotronics approach is to create a modular array architecture made of batch fabricated micromachined electronically-scanned subarray planar aperture modules. A number of such subarray modules are then combined to form a flat or conformal array antenna aperture providing necessary antenna system to operate in the WGS uplink (20.2-2...
