Research Institution
As the demand for wideband electronic warfare systems and S to X band radar for Navy"s shipboard applications grows, it becomes more important to create innovative and cost effective high performance circulators/isolators to isolate the power amplifier from load impedance variations and to allow the temporal overlap of sent and received pulses for more advanced radar operations. Maxentric proposes a passive ferromagnetic circulator design with composite materials. Along with a partial-empirical approach to the design in Phase I, this circulator will support the wide instantaneous bandwidth operation with low insertion loss.
