Abstract:This proposal presents a novel method for implementing a bank of notch filters at the output of a wideband high power amplifier that are each independently agilely adjustable in bandwidth and center frequency from VHF to L band. The technique offers the capability of achieving notch bandwidths as… more
Abstract:This proposal examines a combination of proprietary techniques for preventing shipboard SINCGARS transmitters from overdriving and desensitizing a cosite sensitive signal exploitation receiver. ZA proposes to pursue further development and integration of these techniques, which in combination offer… more
Abstract:Zeger-Abrams Incorporated (ZA) proposes an innovative technique to maintain deep cancellation of cosite JTRS Wideband Networking Waveforms transmitted at UHF as well as legacy waveforms transmitted at VHF and UHF. The technique has minimal impact on the size and weight of ZA's existing adaptive RFI… more
Abstract:Detection of weak oceanic currents by remote sensing means is an important task for many applications of significance to the Navy and the society at large.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
