TECHNOLOGY FOR LOW COST TRAVELING WAVE TUBES FOR EXPENDABLE MICROWAVE COUNTERMEASURES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Espinosa
Award Amount: $296,282.00
Abstract:
Expendable microwave countermeasures (xmcm) systems will be required to protect ships and other high value equipments and installations from active missiles and anti-radiation missiles (arm). traveling wave tubes are used as the microwave power amplifier and are the critical component which… More

STAR MICROWAVE HAS DESIGNED A SPACE GUN WHICH IS BASED ON THE USE OF THE SPINDT THIN FILM FIELD EMISSION CATHODE DEVELOPED BY SRI.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Robert m phillips
Award Amount: $49,658.00
Abstract:
Star microwave has designed a space gun which is based on the use of the spindt thin film field emission cathode developed by sri. a two inch diameter electron beam is made up of an hexagonal array of 100 round beamlet which are produced by field emission from a single wafer. each beamlet carries… More

LOW COST RF INTERACTION CIRCUITS FOR HIGH POWER TWTS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Robert M Phillips
Award Amount: $49,799.00

INVESTIGATION OF TEXTURED OXIDE CATHODE SUBSTRATES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,563.00

INVESTIGATION OF TEXTURED OXIDE CATHODE SUBSTRATES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $290,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this investigation is to substantially extend the useful peak and average current obtainable from oxide coated cathodes. present day oxide cathodes are limited to less than 1 amp/cm2 cw and 6 amps/cm2 pulsed. the only viable alternative at higher current density is the far more… More

LOW COST RF INTERACTION CIRCUITS FOR HIGH POWER TWTS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Robert M Phillips
Award Amount: $497,000.00
Abstract:
Star microwave has developed a new contra-wound helix derived high power twt interaction circuit which can be produced for a fraction of the cost of existing coupled cavity circuits. initial cold tests indicate that the circuit will provide up to twice the gain per wavelength an defficiency of… More

Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Robert M Phillips
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this project is to demonstrate and validate designs and fabrication techniques which will lead to a second generation ij band pulsed lcx (low cost expendable) twt which can be made to sell for under $2500. low cost features include an oxide cathode in a gun which is based on a crt… More

DEMONSTRATION OF BAKE-OUT ACTIVATED MICROPUMP FOR EXTENDED TWT SHELF LIFE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Robert M Phillips
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this research project is to demonstrate and validate the use of a bake-out activated "micropump" as a means of extending the shelf life of twts to at least 5 years. features of the "micropump" include: 1) bake-out activated - no special processing or power supply required. 2)… More
