Development of Novel Phase Shifterless RF Phase Array Antenna Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Texas Tech University
Principal Investigator: Donald Y. C. Lie, Dr. Lie
Award Amount: $70,000.00
RI Contact: Donald Y. Lie
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to utilize our advanced technology and design concepts with nonlinear dynamics to develop phase-shifterless RF phase array antenna systems. We plan to use monolithic and fully-integrated novel coupled Voltage-Controlled Oscillator (VCO) arrays to realize small and… More

Low Cost, High Performance Transmit/Receive Integrated Circuits on a single chip

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: Texas Tech University
Principal Investigator: Donald Lie, Assoc. Professor
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Donald Y. C. Lie
Abstract:
Traditional RADAR implementations suffer from bulky transmitters with cluttered microwave plumbing and antenna support systems that make systems expensive. Today, phased array transceiver architectures providing moderate power (10-100W) can provide RADAR performance with beam-steering capabilities… More

Development of Novel Phase Shifterless RF Phase Array Antenna Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Texas Tech University
Principal Investigator: Donald Lie, Assoc. Prof. – (858) 335-2153
Award Amount: $500,000.00
RI Contact: Donald Y. Lie
Abstract:
In recent years the usage of phase arrays in wireless communications has found significantly increased interest, partly due to their ability to enhance system sensitivity and their anti-jamming capabilities. This growth of strong interests in RF phase array antenna systems for DoD applications is… More
