Ballistic Missile Innovative Radar and RF Products
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
The Missile Defense Agency, assigned with the extremely critical and highly complicated task of protecting the U.S. against ballistic and cruise missiles, has an urgent need for innovative Radar and RF components. In response to the above need, EMAG Technologies proposes to develop a Ku band (12-18 GHz) T/R module based on revolutionary concepts in packaging and three-dimensional integration that will reduce the RF communication package size and volume by two orders of magnitude. We will demonstrate these new technologies by building and characterizing a Ku-band component. The proposed transmit module will be fabricated on high resistivity silicon wafers using mature micromachining technologies which can produce: three-dimensional, high density interconnects, miniaturized antenna elements, on-wafer packaging, monolithically integrated passive elements, frequency downconversion, and adaptive beamforming at the IF. All these architectures can be integrated on a single chip thus forming miniaturized multi-chip modules with high performance and functionality.
