  2. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT: High density radiation-hardened non-volatile memory continues to be a limiting factor in the design of systems for use in space environments. Non-volatile memories can support a number of storage applications, such as CPU configuration, flight control systems, flight data recording, image capture, store and forward communications and the list goes on. A high density non-volatile memory ...

  4. A 100 W, V-Band Elliptical Beam Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF141193

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a 100 W TWT for operation in the 71-76 GHz band. The design will be compatible with space qualification for operation in a geostationary earth orbit (GEO) satellite platform. The performance of the TWT will be optimized to support 12/4 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) with 30 dB suppression and no more than 3 dB backoff. We propose to use a rectangular circuit ...
