  1. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier


    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentrics wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. In ...

  6. Precision Heated Tooling for OOA Curing of Thin-Ply Composites


    Thin-ply prepregs offer significant improvements in weight reduction, stiffness and overall mechanical properties over traditional composite laminates. nbsp;Thin plies (lt;0.05 mm/layer) suppress or delay crack initiation in loaded composite structures thereby allowing for manufacturing of lighter, stiffer and more durable composite products. Recent thin-ply prepreg materials, consisting of toughe ...

  10. Imaging, Filtered Light Scattering Velocity Diagnostic

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A2

    The boundary layer plays a critical role in aerodynamics, acting as a barrier to the transfer of momentum from the air to the flight vehicle. In-flight measurements of velocity fields in the boundary layer could be used to establish the transition point to turbulent flow. This Phase I SBIR project will investigate a novel method for imaging flow velocity based on filtered light scattering. It does ...
