Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-031
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

Protection of the power and system interconnects supporting the BMDS radar systems can be a vulnerability of the radar system and of the supporting C2 infrastructure. Existing technology is capable of meeting

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-035
Budget: 02/13/08 - 08/13/09

Plasma Sciences Corporation (PSC) will build upon previous and ongoing research in transient voltage phenomena to develop a microwave front end limiter that can withstand high power RF interference with minimal impact on normal operations. Participating in the effort is Professor Popovic of Old Dominion University (ODU), a subject matter expert...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-034
Budget: 02/28/07 - 08/28/07

The enabling solid state semiconductor technology in radar systems supporting the U. S. Army's ballistic missile defense program increases its vulnerability to the effects of high power, fast rise-time EMP, HPM, and UWB pulses. In recent years, significant advances in the technology used to produce these pulses have been made in the United Stat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-075
Budget: 09/29/05 - 09/28/07

Reliance on modern electronic network technology comes with susceptibility to upset or damage from high energy Electromagnetic Pulses. The U.S. Navy plans to deploy a family of Multi-Mission Surface Combatants outfitted with local area network total ship monitoring systems utilizing the evolving family of IEEE 1451 standards. Network standards w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-075
Budget: 05/11/04 - 07/05/05

Plasma Sciences Corporation (PSC) will confirm the feasibility of applying theoretical and technical expertise to mitigate high-energy RF threats to shipboard smart sensor networks. PSC experience in weakly ionized gases and plasma protection devices is directed to the development of a plasma transient protection device, a limiter, which activa...
