Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-005
Budget: 01/18/08 - 01/20/09

Sparktronics proposes an innovative high frequency oscillator based on non-linear dielectrics. The system will combine the previously developed tunable high frequency pulse generators with a non-linear transmission lumped element line. During Phase I an analysis of material properties will be completed and a NLTL oscillator designed manufacture...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-003
Budget: 04/07/06 - 04/07/07

Air Force systems require the development of improved high power microwave sources. These sources require efficient generation of high voltage pulses. These systems require charging a short pulse forming line that is switched to an impulse radiator producing a damped sine output at the desired frequency or a matched impulse output to produce a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D05
Budget: 02/15/06 - 02/15/07

Air Force directed energy systems using high power microwaves require an advancement in the state of the art of repetitive pulsed power systems. Present systems driving microwave sources are based on two circuit technologies: the resonant transformer and the Marx generator. Resonant transformers tend to be large and heavy while Marx generators...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Future linear collider applications in high energy physics require higher frequency and higher-power radio frequency (RF) sources. One application for testing accelerating structures and components requires 150 to 200MW at 30GHz with 130nsec pulse length. For the power modulators needed to drive the RF sources, the power requirement is greater ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-006
Budget: 04/15/05 - 04/15/06

Air Force systems such as Ultra Wide Band impulse radiators require advancement past the current state of the art in pulse power technology. Systems operating at several 100kV to MV at repetition rates of 500Hz to 2kHz have been large, complex, expensive and difficult to deploy as airborne systems. Present components are being pushed to their ...
