Abstract

Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the government’s objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales to achieve the 30 MW at L-band goal while achieving low cost and low weight to make the system field deploya-ble, mobile, and affordable. Epirus proposes a > 1 MegaWatt (MW) hardware demonstration at end of Phase I to show feasibility.
