Abstract
This solicitation calls for exploration and development on approaches to find solutions to innovative, high power, short pulsed, low cost W-band transmitters. The approach to be undertaken in this SBIR proposal by InnoSys is to develop a compact, small volume, low-cost, high-power W-band solid state vacuum device (SSVD) transmitter specifically designed for this SBIR program. Design goals include initially developing a compact 50-watt peak radio frequency (RF) output power, chirped solid state vacuum device W-Band pulsed transmitter that matches a 30:1 compressive filter response and can produce chirped pulses of several hundred nanoseconds at a pulse repetition frequency (PRF) of several hundred kilohertz. Later designs and iterations of this SSVD W-band pulsed transmitter should be capable of providing significantly higher peak power levels, PRF and duty cycle operation if needed.
