OEwaves Received Award from DARPA to Investigate GMTI Radar Feasibility for WASP UAV (6/24/2010)

OEwaves is a Caltech spinoff focused on microwave photonics.

OEwaves performed a study based on its unique microwave photonics technologies, when combined with conventional RF technologies, to investigate the feasibility of deploying a miniature GMTI radar system on the WASP UAV. Using Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) optical resonator technology, OEwaves developed and demonstrated a transmit/receive capability that is small in size and weight, consistent with the GMTI Radar parameters required to enable detection of slow moving personnel and material, and compatible with the power availability payload capacity of the WASP UAV. The findings of this study will support development of a future DARPA program addressing this need. [read more]
