  2. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this program is to demonstrate and miniaturize a new type of cryogenic expander, thermoacoustic expander (TAE), for space cryocoolers which provide the cooling power less than 50 mW and operate in the low temperature range between 40K and 10K for cooling SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR surveillance and interceptor systems. TAEs employ high energy acoustic waves generated with absolutely no m ...

  8. Wideband Digital Beamforming Processor for Multi-Beam Phased Array

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA05034

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop a digital beamforming (DBF) processor capable of generating multiple simultaneous receive beams with a wide (>500 MHz) instantaneous bandwidth (IBW). This would offer a significant improvement over a similar DBF processor with 15 MHz IBW that Applied Radar, Inc. previously developed for AFRL. The wide bandwidth is necessary for a number of high-re ...
