Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-032
Budget: 04/17/08 - 04/17/10

The primary function of missile defense radars is to detect and intercept incoming missiles. As the technology for missile systems is advanced, the next generation of missiles will have added capabilities to deploy countermeasures and masking techniques to foil radar detection. The next generation of radars therefore, must also have added capabi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-032
Budget: 04/15/08 - 04/15/10

Hittite proposes to develop an advanced wideband high-speed, low-power, radiation-tolerant ADC for embedded applications such as miniature receiver/exciter modules (mDReX) and wafer-scale arrays (WSAs). Offering higher speed and lower power than competing devices, the ADC will advance the state of the art and enable next-generation digital sub-a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-162
Budget: 02/22/08 - 08/22/08

Most small/medium caliber munitions operate as point-detonation weapons without an air-burst capability which limits their effectiveness against hidden targets, scattered targets, and foot soldiers. The effectiveness of those weapons could be improved significantly by adding an air-burst capability to those munitions. A more effective approach ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-034
Budget: 02/14/08 - 08/14/08

It is the intent of Hittite through this proposal to explore the feasibility of using chemical vapor deposition (CVD)-diamond as a passivating layer within the junction of a Gallium Nitride (GaN) microwave transistor. CVD-diamond being a material with very high thermal conductivity, and being located as close as possible to the heat dissipation ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-003
Budget: 02/13/08 - 08/13/09

Hittite proposes to develop a Radiation-Tolerant Ultra-Wideband Track-and-Hold (T/H) Demultiplexer to address MDA s future needs for microwave signal sampling/data conversion. This development is motivated by the difficulties in achieving high-speed interleaved analog-to-digital converter (ADC) assemblies with good accuracy. A switched-emitter...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

An innovative, ultra-low phase-noise, fully integrated single-chip cavity oscillator is proposed. The cavity is built on a standard MMIC process and has a quality factor of 120 at 50 GHz, and an insertion loss of 7 dB. This proposed technique is very well suited for MMW applications with emphasis on the frequency range 50-100 GHz. The achievable...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Future detectors and arrays for visible, IR, and submillimeter imaging and spectroscopy require much higher speed digitizers than are currently available. In particular, low-power ( 10 GHz bandwidth and sampling at > 10 Gs/s are needed to enable next generation digital submillimeter spectrometers. These digitizers must also interface to typical ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This proposal addresses the need for high-efficiency, high-output power amplifiers operating in the Ka-band frequencies. For space communications, the power amplifier in the transmitter consumes the most prime power and impacts the size of the payload package as well as the size of the power source. The proposed program is aimed at increasing th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

For active microwave surveillance of earth surface and atmosphere, radar transceivers perform functions of probing the atmosphere and the surface conditions of the earth. The primary objective of Phase 1 is to establish a design baseline for a high-efficiency pulsed power amplifier MMIC/module operating at L-band frequency. Hittite has been work...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-021
Budget: 12/14/07 - 08/20/08

Hittite proposes to develop a small, light-weight, interlaced AESA to provide ground surveillance radar and COMINT capability from a small UAV. The development will focus initially on the Ka-band radar antenna. This thin (e.g., 85 mil), 256-element (8 x 32) 35 GHz radar array will conform to and be structurally integrated with a 1.35 x 5.4 x...
