  1. Meander Line Traveling wave tube THz Amplifier

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05T020

    We propose to develop an innovative, traveling-wave tube amplifier (TWTA) compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for submillimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on a novel, interaction circuit; long life, high current density electron guns; compact power supplies; and compact magnet configurations providing compact, lig ...

  2. Novel Terahertz Sources for Advanced Terahertz Power: Nanoklystrons and nanoTWTs

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF05T020

    The region of the millimeter and submillimeter-wave frequency bands, from 100 GHz to 3 THz (wavelengths of 3 to 0.1 mm, respectively), are some of the least explored and yet information rich regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This region of the spectrum, referred to as the terahertz (THz) frequency regime, roughly 300-3000 GHz, is ripe for development. A major impediment to development of a ...

  3. Seamless Sensor Network Communications

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: AF04T015

    Irvine Sensors Corporation (ISC) together with the University of Southern California (USC) propose to build a prototype sensor environment (Figure 1) using multiple SCOUT modules. A SCOUT Module is a very compact miniature hardware platform consisting of a reconfigurable processing support for multi-antenna structure (Multiple input multiple output - MIMO) using multi-carrier schemes (Orthogonal ...

  4. Multistage Electromagnetic and Laser Launch Systems for Affordable, Rapid Access to Space

    SBC: LAUNCHPOINT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05T001

    Electromagenetic (EM) launchers could radically decrease the cost to launch and orbit micro-satellites and could provide launch with little lead time, but thus far it has not been feasible to achieve this capability with linear EM launchers. The objective of this research is to determine the viability of circular launch accelerators. Phase I explored designs consisting of a maglev sled accelerate ...

  5. MINIATURIZED ELECTRO/MAGNETO-OPTIC SENSORS FOR THE DETECTION AND MEASUREMENT OF BROADBAND RF PULSES

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: AF04T025

    An innovative, high-speed electromagnetic-wave-detection system based on broadband, non-intrusive, miniaturized electro-optic (EO), magneto-optic (MO), and electro-optic voltage (EOV) sensors will be developed for evaluating the effects that pulsed electromagnetic (EM) waves have on specific components of electronic systems. The suite of optically-interrogated sensors, which may be positioned with ...

  6. MicroElectro Mechanical System (MEMS) and Optical Frequency-Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) Based Field-Deployable Imaging System to Assess Potential Reti

    SBC: RAINBOW COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: AF04T022

    Rainbow Communications, together with the Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic of University of California at Irvine, proposes to investigate MicroElectro Mechanical System (MEMS) and Optical Frequency-Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) based field-deployable imaging system to assess potential retinal injuries. In Phase II, the following unique features and improvements will be added: First, the de ...

  8. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T007

    During Phase II of the proposed program, Science and Technology Applications, LLC (STA), proposes to find a green replacement for ammonium perchlorate (AP). During Phase I of this program, the novel tetranitroborate, B(NO2)4-, anion, was identified as a potential high-oxygen carrier. Its combination with the NH4+ cation would result in the formation of ammonium tetranitroborate (ATNB), NH4+B(NO2)4 ...

  9. Ultrahydrophobic Coatings

    SBC: Seashell Technology LLC            Topic: AF05T014

    The development of ultrahydrophobic coatings that are safe, economic,and applicable to a variety of different materials will result in significant savings due to the prevention of any water-caused damage such as corrosion and reduced maintenance requirements. Recent studies of naturally occuring ultrahydrophobic properties in plants have identified the so-called "Lotus Effect", where super-water r ...

  10. Seamless Sensor Network Communications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF04T015

    Wireless communication systems must operate under challenging conditions. For instance, communication between two ground personnel within an urban environment may not be possible; there may be severe fading or attenuation due to the numerous obstacles present. At the same time, this lack of connectivity is seen as unacceptable from the perspective of the radio operator. A recent concept undergoing ...
