  1. High Performance 3D Photonic Integration for Space Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T8

    In this work, Freedom Photonics will team with University of California, Santa Barbara to develop a hybrid integration platform that integrates yielded, best-of-breed active optical components with low-cost, high functionality Silicon Photonics components in a manner that is compatible with foundry fabrication (such as AIM Photonics). This will be performed in a highly manufacturable manner, using ...

  5. Compact Multi-Protocol Modem

    SBC: Innoflight, Inc.            Topic: Z8

    Legacy SDR (Software Defined Radio) has been somewhat hailed as the “be all, end all” solution to communications systems.  Reality is that SDR platforms are challenged by the clock speed of the underlying processor, and the fact that waveform design is not a simple process.  As missions keep pushing for higher throughput communications platforms, it is often the case that leg ...
