Abstract
MEMtronics and its teammates propose to develop phase shifters with less than 2 dB loss and better than 2 watts of power handling at X-band microwave frequencies. This program leverages the significant investments already made by the DoD for improving reliability and packaging of RF MEMS technology. This project will combine these improvements with modifications that increase power handling and reduce loss even further. Product development efforts will result in phase shifters which meet the needs of upcoming ballistic missile defense systems, as well as a variety of other military radar and communications needs.
