V- Band Radio Frequency (RF) Filters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Andrew R. Brown, President
Award Amount: $99,522.00
Abstract:
This proposal describes a novel implementation of a V-band tunable filter. Preliminary simulations indicate that a 2% bandwidth can be achieved with insertion losses of approximately 1 dB from WR-12 waveguide flange to flange (no de-embedding) and an unoptimized tuning range of 80-85 GHz. Larger… More

V- Band Radio Frequency (RF) Filters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Andrew R. Brown, President
Award Amount: $736,440.00
Abstract:
This proposal details the feasibility, design, implementation, risk mitigation, and plan for construction of prototype millimeter-wave, electronically tunable filters. Such a technology can achieve near fixed frequency filter performance while tuning over a respectable bandwidth enabling… More

Metamaterial-based MEM ultra-low-loss non-dispersive phased-array antenna

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Michigan State University
Principal Investigator: Andrew R. Brown, President, A. Brown Design – (734) 674-7869
Award Amount: $97,892.00
RI Contact: Prem Chahal
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Under this collaborative effort between A Brown Design, Michigan State University, and Raytheon, a novel phase shifter design is proposed. The phase shifter design builds upon existing RF MEMS capacitive technology by co-integrating MEMS switches with metamaterial unit cells. The… More
