Not Available This SBIR topic identifies an important requirement in further advancing and expanding the application of GPS technology in DoD and commercial applications, namely, the need for a temperature compensated or other low power oscillator that provides the same quality performance as today's Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillators without the size, weight, power, and cost penalties of the oven controlled oscillator. There is no existing crystal oscillators that will meet all the requirements of this SBIR topic. Furthermore, we believe no existing crystal oscillator technology is capable of meeting these requirements. Therefore, innovative technologies capable of producing crystal oscillators meeting these requirements must be developed. There is a huge market for crystal oscillators meeting these requirements, for a wide range of military, commercial and consumer applications. The objective in Phase I is to define and prove the feasibility of an innovative technology using new temperature sensors and actuators to compensate for temperature change and hysteresis under normal temperature change, in order to achieve high quality crystal oscillators. The new TCXO developed from this project is expected to meet all the requirements set forth in this SBIR topic, and will find widespread use in other DoD applications and in the commercial and consumer markets.
