Abstract
Colorado Engineering Inc. (CEI), with its teammates, University of Colorado and Boeing, proposes to leverage its collective expertise with radar systems design, Electromagnetics (EM) modeling, antenna design, advanced processing architectures, and radar signal processing algorithms to research, identify, and architect a short range THz imaging radar for aircraft navigation. The THz-gap extends from the 100GHz Millimeter Wave (MMW) frequencies to the far infrared 10 THz frequency. This band of the EM spectrum is unique in that the absorption primarily due to water molecules is significant. For this reason, there has not been a lot of development of THz technologies beyond very short range: test / measurement equipment spectroscopy equipment and recently airport scanners. The team is architecting a Navigation Assist THz Imaging Radar (NATIR) for Army aircraft applications.
