Abstract
This purpose of this project is develop an infrared transparent, millimeter wave bandpass filter for use on tri-mode seeker domes for the next generation Joint Air-to-Ground Missile. The filters will simultaneously have a pass-band insertion loss 20dB, and IR transparency greater than 90% to 5m. The filters will be characterized by optical transmission scans, electrical measurements, and EMI shielding measurements from 26.5 to 40 GHz. Furthermore, high temperature testing to greater than 500 degrees C will be performed along with abrasion testing and sand erosion testing. This data will assess the suitability of different designs for use in the tri-mode seeker domes.
