Title: Closed Loop Frequency Control for Tunable High Quality Factor Filters
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: W31P4Q13C0167
Award Amount: $749,292.00
 

Abstract:

The proposed project will focus on the development of closed loop frequency control hardware and algorithms for control of high quality factor tunable microwave filters based upon evanescent mode resonators. The developed controller will be integrated with a representative filter. As a system demonstration, the integrated filter/controller module will then be applied to a next generation frequency agile microwave module for the suppression of harmonic and spurious frequency output of a high power amplifier. The high-Q substrate integrated filters, combined with a highly accurate and precise filter controller is expected to find a wide range of applications for the suppression of co-site interference and anti-jamming capability in current and next generation microwave systems.
