  1. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  10. Application of Correlated Magnetics to Magnetic Torque Transfer Devices

    SBC: Correlated Magnetics Research            Topic: OSD10EP8

    During the Phase I project, 40% improvements in magnetic shear force and 200 to 500% increases in magnetic coupling torque-density were demonstrated by applying the Correlated Magnetics Research"s (CMR) domain engineering and magnetization technologies to commercially available materials. The Phase II builds on this previous work in four important ways. 1) CMR will seek greater shear force improv ...
