Abstract
UBC, INCORPORATED, AN ENGINEERING FIRM PERFORMING RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND CONSULTING IN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OVER THE ENTIRE ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTUM, SPECIALIZING IN MILLIMETER WAVE AND INFRARED SENSORS, PROPOSES AN SBIR PROGRAM TO PROVIDE A DESIGN AND SUPPORTING ANALYSIS LEADING TO AN EHF (75-110 GHZ) LOW NOISE SURVEILLANCE SENSOR EMPLOYING ELECTRONIC SCANNING AND PROVIDING AN ACTIVE SEARCH BACK UP MODE. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM BUILDS UPON WORK BEING EXECUTED IN KA BAND (26-40 GHZ) AND Q BAND (33-50 GHZ) AT UBC, INC. AND DEMONSTRATING THE VIABILITY OF OUR PATENTED TECHNOLOGY. THE TECHNOLOGY AFFORDS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE BROADBAND ELECTRONICALLY SCANNED EHF SURVEILLANCE USING TODAYS TECHNOLOGY WHILE PROVIDING LOW COST, LIGHT WEIGHT, LOW PROFILE, HIGH PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS AT ALL MICROWAVE AND MILLIMETER WAVE FREQUENCIES. THE NEAR TERM BENEFIT TO THE US GOVERNMENT IS ENORMOUS, IN THAT A LARGE BURDEN IS REMOVED FROM THE MMIC PROGRAMS NOW IN PLACE AND FUNDED BY DARPA. THE REQUIREMENT ON THESE PROGRAMS TO DEVELOP SOLID STATE MODULES COMPATIBLE WITH PHASED ARRAY ACTIVE APERTURES IS ESSENTIALLY REMOVED IF THE TECHNOLOGY PROPOSED HEREIN IS ULTIMATELY SUCCESSFUL.
