  1. Ultra Wide Bandwidth High Dynamic Range Digital ISR Receivers for the submarine force


    This effort to improve the capabilities of the ESM system will increase the reliability and reduce lifecycle support costs of the Radar Wideband (RWB) subsystem on submarines. Analog to digital converter (A/D) based digital receivers will be applied to yield improvements in Radar signal acquisition and processing. In-phase and Quadrature (I/Q) data streams will be created from which intra pulse mo ...

  4. Molecular Modeling Driven Design of High Density Energetic Materials

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N12AT023

    Development of next generation energetic materials has been slow primarily due to a lack of fundamental understanding of the physics and chemistry of these materials. The strategy for development historically has been a trial-and-error experimental approach which possesses considerable risk of failure. With the advent of high speed computers and sophisticated molecular modeling techniques, it is n ...

  5. Efficient HF Transmit Antennas Utilizing Platform Coupling

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N12AT015

    Virtual EM is proposing a platform coupling technique for improving efficiency of electrically small antennas on ground, sea and air vehicles. The the proposed approach, a portion of the platform becomes the extension of the antenna and hence result in higher performance. Technique has been demonstrated already with the commercial automotive applications and a revised approach is proposed here.
