Research Institution
US Navy relies on directed energy (DE) weapons, such as High-Power Microwave (HPM) sources, to disrupt, damage, or destroy foe electronic equipment at a standoff distance while minimizing collateral damage. Friendly and blue force mission critical electronic systems, such as radar, communications, navigation, sensors, guidance, fire control, etc. are vulnerable to both friendly and enemy DE weapons. US Navy requires test capability to generate arbitrary HPM signals in order to both improve the effectiveness of its DE weapons against specific enemy targets and to reduce the susceptibility of friendly systems to foe DE attacks. We propose to address the Navy requirement for a flexible and efficient HPM test capability by leveraging our prior Navy-funded work and innovative concepts to develop a solid-state High-Power Radio-Frequency (HPRF) source based on a planar and modular Non-linear Transmission Line (NLTL) RF oscillator triggered through a ultra-fast stacked MOSFET high-voltage switch. The wavelet synthesis approach will be utilized to generate essentially arbitrarily shaped waveforms by adjusting relative delays and amplitudes among array elements.
