Innovative Concepts for Distributed, Large Area, Rectenna Arrays
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
MesoScribe Technologies, Inc, in conjunction with program partner EDO Antenna Products and DoD transition partner Raytheon Corporation, proposes to examine the design issues, materials technology and the feasibility of implementing a space based large area collection rectenna. System level considerations such as integration, cost and transport will addressed. Component level issues including substrate, antenna element, schottky junction diode and thermal management concepts will be addressed during the initial design phase. Materials and device characteristics will also examined during the design phase and preliminary fabrication and characterization will be conducted. MesoScribe's novel direct write technology along with EDO's advanced design capability is expected to provide a unique framework for examining this far reaching concept. The successful development of component and/or system level technology can have dual use applicability. The SBIR program will provide a framework to develop a team and assess the technology.
