Research Institution

A robust system level design process will be used to identify the design of transparent tapered resistive (TTR) elements, including the materials, fabrication processes, and lifecycle costs. The transparent tapered resistive film will be designed to provides a tapered resistive layer across the film while remaining transparent in the visual and near-infrared optical bands for use in radio-frequency applications. The transparent tapered resistive elements will be designed to operate in the X-band and S-band maritime radar spectrums on glass, polycarbonate, or other appropriate substrate material. A thorough feasibility study will be conducted to investigate what is in the art of the possible within the given trade space that will satisfy this need. The trade study, supported by extensive modeling, simulation, and experimental demonstration, will result in a design that addresses all requirements. Proof-of-concept demonstrations of candidate designs will be made to assess their performance.
