Radio-Wave Circulator Frees Telecommunications from Magnetic Hold
Researchers developed a communications circulator that mimics the way magnetics can selectively route radio waves—without using magnetic materials.
3D Radar’s Long-Range Hazard Detection Quickens Flight Rerouting
Through a combination of 3D scanning and pulse-compression technologies, the IntuVue 3D radar system provides a longer-range, more complete view of hazardous weather.
IC Bridges the “Terahertz Gap” to Break World Record
Researchers at Northrop Grumman, under a DARPA contract, developed a terahertz monolithic integrated circuit (TMIC) that uses 10 transistor stages to reach an operating speed of 1 THz.
RF Development Platform Supports Metering Applications
Semtech and other members of the Wi-SUN Alliance jointly created an RF development platform, replete with an RF transceiver and MCU, for metering applications.
Network-Edge Battery Technology Uses Existing Copper Cables
The LPS04 dc-dc converter and Aggregator allow carriers to use their embedded copper cables to power remote devices from central-office power plants.
Advanced Routers to Strengthen Patriot Missile Prowess 1
Engineers from Raytheon and TELDAT will work together to develop and produce advanced militarized routers with expanded controls for the Patriot Air and Missile Defense (AMD) system.
Twisted Radio Beams Transmit Data at 32 Gbits/s
Similar to twisting light waves for high-speed data transfer, researchers twisted radio beams to achieve 32-Gbit/s data-transmission rates.
Inertial Navigation System Provides Positioning to GPS-Deprived Areas
Ring laser gyroscopes and quartz accelerometers incorporated into Honeywell’s Tactical Advanced Land Inertial Navigator (TALIN) help expand GPS coverage.
F-16 Electronic Scanning Radar Enhances Target Detection, Tracking
The Scalable Agile Beam Radar (SABR) will extend the radar capabilities and viability of F-16 aircraft thanks to the implementation of an electronically scanned area (AESA) fire-control radar.
Airborne Radio in Tune with MUOS Defense Satellites
Rockwell Collins claims its ARC-210 is the first airborne radio to operate on the MUOS satellite system, successfully connecting with the communications base station and ground radios.
UPDATE: MEADS Radar Performs 360-Deg. Rotation For Missile Tracking
Because tactical operations centers act as nodes in the MEADS network, a commander can dynamically add or subtract elements without shutting the entire system down.
IEEE Unveils Micromechanical-Sensor Standard
A new IEEE standard sets performance parameters for sensors used in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) targeting IoT products.
Characterize Plasmonic-Resonator Spectra at Nanoscale Resolution
Photothermal induced resonance (PTIR) can be used to characterize plasmonic nanomaterials, thanks to a passive tip that mitigates interference.
RFMD/TriQuint Becomes “Qorvo”
RFMD and TriQuint’s merged company will now be known as Qorvo, a name that reflects its mission of congruity and evolution.
Satellite Gets into Rhythm with Midsize Black Hole
Discovery of rhythmic pulsations via counters and detectors aboard NASA’s Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite led to the M82X- black hole’s unusual midsize categorization.
