The Office of Naval Research has issued an SBIR solicitation seeking proposals for the development of drift step recovery diodes (DSRD) for generating fast rising, high power wideband and ultra-wideband pulse sources capable of long-lived operation at high pulse repetition frequency. In this proposal Transient Plasma Systems, Inc. (TPS) outlines a plan setup and run a known and demonstrated diffusion process that has been shown to produce DSRDs that are capable of achieving specifications outlined in the solicitation. TPS is well positioned to address the requirements of this SBIR solicitation because of the deep domain of expertise in the field of nanosecond pulsed power, specifically in the field of DSRD devices. TPS, founded in 2009, has nearly a decade of experience designing, developing, and commercializing wideband pulse sources that run at high pulse repetition frequency and use DSRD or DSRD-like devices. Furthermore, in Q1 of 2018, and independent of this solicitation, TPS began building out a 4,500 ft2 manufacturing space to produce DSRDs for commercial applications. This solicitation is a good fit for TPS’ existing technical and commercialization plans for producing these diodes, which will be outlined in the technical volume of this proposal.
