6 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-149
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:The primary objective is to design very low noise Ka and Q-Band low noise MMIC LNAs for space platforms and point to point digital radios. The noise figure for both LNAs is to be under 2.0dB with gain greater than 25dB. The input and output return loss is less than 10dB with an OIP3 greater than 10dBm. The operating temperature range is...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-079
Budget: 09/26/13 - 06/26/14

ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses an important need of DoD and MILSATCOM for satellite based receivers operating at Ka-Band having multiple beams (as many as 30) capability. Many of these beams need to be independently steered. This has traditionally been a major challenge because, as will be shown, the architectures that are required are very ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-027
Budget: 02/14/11 - 03/01/13

Future surveillance radars need to be more agile to identify and track increasingly complex targets. To meet this need, radars that can emit and receive many independently scanned beams will be required. Furthermore, the scanning must be two dimensional and operate over wide bands. One row of 16 elements forming eight independent beams will be ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-015
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

Next generation BMD sensor systems are anticipated to be highly networked. One radar concept has a single or a few illuminators and multiple receive antennas. It is desirable that the receive arrays be electronically steerable and support multiple simultaneous receive beams. Therefore, these future surveillance radars need to be more agile. To m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-027
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

An innovative wideband beamformer is proposed that covers the entire 7 to 14GHz frequency range with greater than 10 independent steerable beams that can be scanned +/-60 degrees. Any given signal will have an instantaneous bandwidth of at least 60MHz over the full octave bandwidth of the beamformer.Future surveillance radars need to be more agi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-155
Budget: 03/16/09 - 12/31/09

Future military satellite communications systems will have higher signal capacities by employing complex modulation schemes in channels that are closely spaced in frequency (21MHz). Nonlinearities in the terminal electronics, particularly power amplifiers, cause spectral regrowth, where by extraneous power from one channel interferes with signal...
