Abstract
The proposal describes a miniaturized tunable filter technology for wideband tuning in the 500 MHz to 3 GHz bands. The filters use a novel actuator to achieve a combination of wide tuning range and high-Q of the resonant elements. The filter technology can be integrated into a small surface mount package, as described in the proposal. The technology is a major step for reducing the SWAP of front-end filters used in JTRS radios. BENEFIT: The proposed miniaturized, tunable filter technology can be used in a wide range of military and commercial radio hardware operating in the 500 MHz to 3 GHz bands.
