AbstractNot Available Technical Abstract (Limit your abstract to 200 words with no classified or proprietary information/data.) MSSI proposes the use of ultra wideband (UWB), nanosecond duration pulses for a fusing sensor waveform to determine the ordinance to target range with an accuracy of better than six inches over a six inch to six foot target range. UWB sensors operate as presence detectors and employ waveforms which are covert ant extremely difficult to jam. The sensor and firing pulse electronics logic will be incorporated into a single integrated circuit chip. In Phase I, MSSI will study the design ant miniaturization of a brassboard ultra wideband radar sensor in four tasks: (1) Develop sensor block diagrams which incorporate the safety and operating features of current sensor designs; (2) identify promising technologies that would allow single chip integration of all features of the radar fuze; (3) conduct modeling and simulation of the selected sensors using the software package Matlab to predict performance; and (4) fabricate and test a breadboard model to confirm predictions from the simulation. The breadboard will be evaluated for: (a) minimum required ERP for target detection; (b) achievable level of covertness; (c) circuit complexity for ultimate incorporation into a single-chip design to be implemented in Phase II. BENEFITS: UWB Micro-Miniature Circuit Development will produce critical building blocks for automobile collision avoidance, aircraft obstacle avoidance, liqu
