NuWaves Engineering, a developer of advanced radio frequency (RF) and microwave solutions, announced today that the company has been selected for a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I award for the U.S. Navy’s S-band Transmit/Receive module Advancements For Efficient radars (STRAFE). The STRAFE program aims to develop a transmit/receive module suitable for use in a next-generation Navy airborne radar, which will be integrated onto aircraft deployed on carriers.
The 6-month Phase I project will involve research and development activities resulting in an innovative Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) architecture that, once fully developed, will be integrated into a high performance transmit/receive module that will be delivered to the U.S. Navy during Phase II.
“NuWaves looks forward to working with the Navy to advance the state of the art in Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) for mobile radar applications with the STRAFE program,” said Jeff Wells, President and CEO of NuWaves Engineering. “Our team is excited to define a new
benchmark for transmit power density and provide a game-changing capability to support the Warfighter.”
