  4. Advanced Architecture and Process Techniques for High-Density, Radiation-Hardened Non-Volatile Memory

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08023

    For mission critical data storage on systems operating in natural space and nuclear weapons environments, the use of radiation hardened (RH) non-volatile memory (NVM) is imperative. Today’s complex computer controlled electronic systems use NVM to store critical data for proper operation. This typically includes configuration parameters which allow the system to return to a known configuration ...

  7. Calibration techniques for very large arrays

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: MDA08030

    Phased array antenna systems are growing in use within military systems. These arrays of thousands of elements need precise control of the aperture distributions to meet requirements for gain, sidelobes, etc. Errors in these phase and amplitude distributions over time will degrade the performance of these apertures. FIRST RF favors simple concepts with little or no hardware impact that fully ch ...
