  1. Integrating Sphere at Microwave Frequencies

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF182036

    To meet the demands of AF182-036 SBIR solicitation (Integrating Sphere at Microwave Frequencies), MaXentric is proposing DYSON (Diffusive (Y)Integrating Sphere for Output aggregatioN). DYSON is a microwave integrating sphere made up of partial spherical segments, each 3-D printed to provide randomized scattering over a broad range of frequencies. DYSONs unique and novel design mixes the spherical ...

  2. Free-Space Optical Communications (FSO) and its Remote Detection, Location and Characterization or Interception

    SBC: Wavefront Vision Inc            Topic: AF182039

    The physical layer security of free space optical communication (FSO) has attracted growing attention recently.As the FSO laser beam propagates through the atmosphere, it is absored by moisture, Rayleigh and Mie scattered by aerosols, dust, particulates, fog, haze and clouds, and randomly or stochastically refracted by atmospheric inhomogeneities and turbulence. Such attenuations of the transmitte ...
