  1. Renewable Electric Energy Source for Special Operations Force (SOF) Maritime Combatant Craft

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05001

    An electric power source is needed that is two-man portable or lighter, operates on logistics fuels (JP-8, diesel), is quiet, and has a low thermal signature. We propose the MICE (Miniature Internal Combustion Engine) generator that is currently being developed by Aerodyne Research to deliver 500 W electrical power using logistics fuels. The design for this MICE generator will weigh less than 16 ...

  6. Broadband Self-Biased Ferrire-Coupled-Line Circulators Operating at X-band Frequencies

    SBC: CIRCULATION, INC.            Topic: SB052016

    We propose a new approach to microwave circulator design the employs self biased magnetization-in-plane ferrite materials in a coupled line geometry. In Phase 1 we will identify and optimize concepts based on the self biased ferrite oupled line circulators. Optimization will include simulations based on different line dimensions, line spacings amd coupled meandering line configurations.
