Research Institution
Opteos Inc. is responding to an Air Force request to develop a rugged field-portable multi-channel measurement system with non-perturbing probes capable of measuring and displaying real time waveforms from RF pulses with frequency components from 3 kHz to 100 GHz and peak field strengths of 2 MV/m or 5 kA/m with pulse widths as short as 100 picoseconds. The proposed system will build upon Opteos expertise in real time electrooptic E-field measurement systems and can support up to 48 deployed probes and will be able measure electrics fields as low as 20V/m. We believe that this system represent a fundamental breakthrough in high-field strength measurement capabilities. BENEFIT: The proposed real-time field detection probe will have a number of applications in EMC/EMI measurement and high power microwave weapon assessment.
