Award List:

Small Aperture X-Band Antenna (SAXBA)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $69,997.00
Abstract:
We propose a low-cost, low-profile, electronically scanned, in both Azimuth and Elevation, X-band communications on-the-move (OTM) antenna. All electronics and power modules including MIL-1275 type power supply are enclosed inside the radome. There are no moving parts in the system. The antenna is… More

Compact Efficient Electrically Small Broadband Antennas

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, CTO
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to design and develop compact, efficient, electrically small, broadband antennas that are capable of handling high voltages of greater than 100 kV, and fit into small geometrical spaces of less than 40 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length. Previously insurmountable… More

Flat Panel Shelter-Mountable Phased Array Antenna for DoD Systems of Record

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, VP/CTO
Award Amount: $69,318.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to develop innovative concept designs for flat-panel, low-profile, smallest possible aperture, phased-array GBS receive antennas in the 10.5 f?" 13.5 GHz Ku-band and 20.2 f?" 21.2 GHz K/Ka-band. Furthermore, the objectives include that the antenna be realized within… More

Dielectric Resonator Antenna

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, CTO
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to design and develop multimode dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) operating in a wide frequency band from 30 MHz to 2 GHz covering VHF/UHF Line-of-site (LOS) communications, UHF Satellite communications, and L band including GPS frequencies. The DRA elements have… More

Improved Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) Metaferrite Based Antenna for SATCOM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, CTO – (401) 855-6721
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to design and develop UHF Satellite communications (SATCOM) circular polarized antennas using advanced metamaterials to achieve high gain performance with smaller dimensions (i.e., size and weight). The metamaterials we propose belong to a class of… More

Dielectric Resonator Antenna

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, CTO – (401) 855-6721
Award Amount: $271,765.00
Abstract:
Naval aircrafts are covered with many antennas for VHF/UHF Line-of-sight communications, UHF SATCOM, L-band, and GPS functions. The blade type antennas employed have limited bandwidths. Low-profile cavity-backed antennas will require hull penetration inside the aircraft. Thus, the objective of this… More

Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) Compliant GPS Receiver for GEO

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Kalyan Ganesan, CTO – (859) 489-0156
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to develop Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) compliant GPS receiver for Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) applications. In this proposal, we explore an approach to design the GEO GPS SAASM receiver based on improved techniques for signal acquisition… More
