Title: A LIGHTWEIGHT UHF SATCOM TRIPLEXER FOR USE IN EXPENDABLE BUOY SYSTEMS
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N66001-10-C-0139
Award Amount: $599,973.00
 

Abstract:

Existing filter technology does not suit the mechanical and electrical needs for use in expendable buoy systems. Current diplexer/triplexer designs do not provide adequate rejection of the high power transmitter signal within the receive channel within the specified size, weight and acceleration constraints required for the Navy Buoy System. NuWaves will leverage its success from the phase I and apply that to developing a Triplexer for UHF SATCOM inclusive of the MUOS operating bands. The Triplexer will incorporate advanced filter concepts to achieve low insertion loss, small form factor, lightweight, low-cost, and high out of band rejection required in state-of-the-art expendable buoy systems. Phase II includes delivery of In-Process Prototype Hardware, Prototype Hardware, and First Article Test Plans. The Option provides for qualification of the First Article and delivery of low rate initial production units.
