Gallery: Preview of the New Products at IMS 2014
The flagship symposium of this year’s Microwave Week, IMS 2014, will feature over 575 companies and include a full schedule with 160 technical sessions. Click through the gallery to preview some of the new devices that will be on display.
Second MUOS-Satellite Radio Test Lab Begins Operations
A new laboratory will help find efficient ways to add mobile user objective system (MUOS) satellite radios to current ultra-high-frequency (UHF) communications.
Water Topography Mission Utilizes Ka-Band Radar Interferometer
The Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission will take advantage of a Ka-band radar with its wide swath to survey water surfaces at 10 times the resolution of current technologies.
Bitcoins Ready To Take Off…Into Outer Space?
A plan to launch a constellation of small satellites intends to strengthen bitcoins’ peer-to-peer network during outages or in areas where network connections are difficult to find.
Radio-Telescope Antennas Use Indexer to Change Frequencies
Once all of its 64 antennas are operational, it is thought that the MeerKAT array will be sensitive enough to pick up a cell-phone signal all the way from Saturn.
Geo-Targeting Study Focuses on Emergency Alerts
By studying the algorithms and processes behind wireless emergency alerts, geo-targeting research will help to improve the delivery of messages during emergencies.
Smart Node Pod Extends Milcom Networks
Smart Node Pods build out military networks by extending tactical data link (TDL) and joint aerial layer network (JALN) capabilities.
GaN Technology Triples Power Density
Raytheon’s GaN technology recently showed that it can provide as much as five times the thermal conductivity of previous SiC-on-diamond transistors.
Triton UAS Passes Flight Tests
The Triton UAS recently completed a series of flight tests. It will now move on to payload testing of its upgraded sensor suite.
GPS III Program Continues to Advance
Development of the GPS III satellites continues to push forward as contracts are awarded for the production of eight systems that will improve capabilities for military, commercial, and civilian users.
LTE TDD Gains Mobile Momentum
Long Term Evolution (LTE) time division duplexing (TDD) has proven to be a viable solution for mobile demands—especially with the use of the 3.5-GHz spectrum band.
DMSP Imager Measures Brightness Temperatures to Track Weather
The Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSM/I) aboard the latest Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellite utilizes a next-generation sensor suite to study cloud covers.
UPDATE: AEHF Antenna Employs Electronically Steerable Beams
The phased array antennas utilized by Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellites offer greater agility and flexibility, thanks to electronically steered beams and upgraded frequencies.
FCC Opens 100 MHz of Spectrum for WiFi Use
The FCC has made 100 MHz of spectrum available within the 5-GHz band for U-NII devices with the hope of increasing WiFi speeds in congested areas.
Precipitation Radar Employs Variable Pulse Repetition
The dual-frequency precipitation radar aboard the Core Observatory satellite uses variable pulse repetition to make detailed measurements about rainfall structure and intensity.
