Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-313
Budget: 01/02/09 - 01/02/11

Many aircraft are hardened against the effects of various forms of high power electromagnetic waves, including Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), High Power Microwaves (HPM), High Intensity Radio Frequency (HIRF), and lightning. These aircraft typically have electrically conducting coatings on their windows, with conducting gaskets that form an electr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-313
Budget: 10/10/07 - 07/10/08

Many aircraft are hardened against the effects of various forms of various high power electromagnetic waves, including EMP, HPM, and HIRF. These aircraft typically have electrically conductive screens built into their windows, with an electrical connection to the metallic fuselage that forms an electromagnetic seal. To maintain the shielding eff...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D07
Budget: 01/24/07 - 01/24/09

High-Power Microwave fields with frequencies near 1 GHz have been shown to upset electronic equipment at a distance. The challenge lies in finding a high-power source that provides a pulse of continuous-wave power 20-30 ns in length, with reasonable efficiency, low cost, small size and mass, and peak power approaching 1 GW. Existing sources for ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D07
Budget: 02/15/06 - 02/15/07

High-Power Microwave fields between 500 MHz and 1 GHz can upset electronic equipment at a considerable distance. However, it remains challenging to find a suitable high-power microwave source for such fields. Such devices should have a bandwidth of 10-15%, reasonable efficiency, low cost, compact size, and peak power of about 1 GW. Existing sour...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D10
Budget: 02/14/06 - 02/14/07

Antennas for radiating high-power mesoband electromagnetic signals are critical to the mission of upsetting electronics at a distance. High Power Microwave (HPM) weapons require highly efficient antennas that can fit into a small volume. An example of such an antenna is the half Impulse Radiating Antenna (IRA) driven by a switched oscillator sou...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of New Mexico

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-T009
Budget: 08/16/04 - 02/15/05

We consider here antennas and sources for radiating high-power ultra-wideband (UWB) electromagnetic impulses from extremely compact and durable packages. Such a device will have applications either as a part of a UWB radar system or as an electromagnetic weapon. A need exists for an antenna that can radiate as broad a bandwidth as possible with ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-007
Budget: 07/21/04 - 10/30/06

Ultra-Wideband radar systems have already demonstrated an ability to detect and locate non-cooperative targets. Existing systems, however, are clumsy to use because they require two separate antennas for the transmit and receive channels. Because the antennas are large, it is challenging to mount both of them onto a HMMWV. What is needed is a UW...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-006
Budget: 05/06/04 - 04/06/05

Airborne UWB radar systems will require a receive antenna that can be printed or mounted onto the inflatable wing of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Such antennas need to reach as low as VHF frequencies, and must be positioned to look to the side of the aircraft. To satisfy this requirement, tapered slot antennas (TSAs) looking off the wingtip...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-095
Budget: 07/16/03 - 01/17/04

The detection of reentry vehicles with missile seekers is a particularly challenging problem due to the high speed of incoming targets and the clutter they normally emit to confuse enemy radar. Advanced missile seekers using Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radar have shown much promise for distinguishing targets from clutter, but it is necessary to launch ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-007
Budget: 07/09/03 - 06/18/04

Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radar systems will be useful for remote target identification, especially when looking through foliage, rain, or soil. The current state of the art, however, requires two separate antennas, one each for transmit and receive. Because the space available for antennas is limited, it would be highly convenient to use a single an...
