OEwaves (Caltech) Receives Contract from DARPA to Develop an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) Immune All-Dielectric RF Photonic Receiver (8/30/2010)

OEwaves is a Caltech spinoff focused on microwave photonics.

DARPA’s challenging EMPiRe program seeks to develop a microwave receiver front-end capability that will survive and operate short pulses of high energy while maintaining high sensitivity, bandwidth, and dynamic range.

OEwaves’ novel approach will achieve the performance goals of the EMPiRe program and result in delivery of the All-Dielectric Photonic-Assisted Radio Front-End (ADNERF) with a compact and scalable design, which is practically unmatched in compact conventional receivers. The receiver development will be based on OEwaves’ platform technology of crystalline whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonator. [read more]
