research devices exist that can sample at nearly a 1/2 GHz rate. Novel approaches, as well as advanced hybridizeddetector/ROIC are of interest. Although applications will require imaging at a variety of optical wavelengths,technology demonstrations near 1.5 micron will be most useful.PHASE I: Investigate novel approaches to high-rate temporal sampling and generate a high-level readout/detectordesign.PHASE II: Develop detailed designs, fabricate and test readout/detector devices.DUAL USE COMMERCIALIZATION: In addition to the military use of these devices in active sensing, camerasusing these high-speed imaging focal plane arrays can be used to support civil engineering investigations ofstructures.REFERENCES: 1.

Component mass, power consumption,cost, and adaptability to sensor operating signal environments are important drivers along with performance.DESCRIPTION: The USAF has the need for advanced sensors that provide the warfighter with enhancedcapabilities to counter a broad range of dynamic threats. Future Air Force sensors must be adaptable,reconfigurable, multifunctional, and networked. The sensors must be effectively operated in severe electromagneticenvironments that are constrained by frequency spectrum management, dense signal environments, jamming, co-siteinterference, multipath, and operation in urban environments. These conditions place severe demands on the sensorcomponents and subsystems to effectively operate with the needed bandwidth, low loss, dynamic range, isolation,and efficiency. The developed components must be able to meet the airborne platform size, weight, prime power,AF - 198

and cost constraints. The scope of this effort addresses sensor components that would be used on manned andunmanned airborne vehicles. The frequency ranges of interest include 1-6 GHz, 2-12 GHz, and 2-20 GHz.Components may have instantaneous bandwidths cited above or they may have bandwidths of several hundred MHzthat are tunable across the cited bandwidths. The range of potential high performance components of interest areextremely high isolation/low loss circulators (3-5 ports), high tunability phase shifters (4-6 bits) and switchable
