Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,834.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Darlene Franco, Principal Investigator – (603) 598-1194
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Significant cost reductions and system improvements would ensue if multiple transmit and receive antennas could share one RF aperture without performance degradation due to self-interference phenomenon. Effects of radar jamming signals would be also be reduced through the use of a… More
