Nuvotronics is proposing for this Navy SBIR number N131-059 to develop the key elements to enable broadband sources (1110 GHz) toward future electronic warfare (EW), communications and radar systems. RF passive components based on waveguide are very low loss but are limited in bandwidth. Components based on substrate material such as ceramic or printed circuit board can provide a broader band of operation but exhibit high loss especially at high frequencies. . To provide RF components with low loss and wide-bandwidth of operation, Nuvotronics is proposing to design new RF passives based on our proven PolyStrata integrated transmission line technology. PolyStrata offers unprecedented performance in propagation loss, wide band operation and linearity, enabling the next generation of low loss passives components. For this proposal, Nuvotronics is offering in this phase I to design an ultra-low loss architecture, which will integrate the different micro-filters, active and passive components needed on a single common PolyStrata monolithic backplane to deliver a 1-110 GHz wide band source.
