Research Institution
The current MATRIX source is a transmission line oscillator which operates at a maximum charge voltage of 300 kV with a center frequency of approximately 180 MHz and a Q of approximately 4. Although the MATRIX source has proven effective and reliable, a simultaneous increase in all of these operational parameters is limited by the physics of the current design. According to the OSD05-D07 Topic Description and other sources, the AFRL desires to modify the current MATRIX-type oscillator for tunable center frequency, reduced damping constant (higher Q), reduced overall size and operation at center frequencies between 500 MHz and 1 GHz. The ASR Corporation has proposed a series of fundamental improvements to the current MATRIX design to accomplish these goals.
