Plasma Limiter: Electromagnetic Attack Protection for BMDS Radars

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Luke Gritter, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
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… More
