Phase Matrix Inc., San Jose, CA, has been awarded a $700,000 contract by Lockheed Martin Systems Integration – Owego to develop an X-/Ku-band digitally tuned oscillator for the US Air Force's B-2 stealth bomber. The oscillator will be used to help modernize the B-2's electronic systems. Phase Matrix expects to receive orders for additional spares once qualification of the oscillator has been satisfactorily completed.
"This contract fully reflects Lockheed Martin’s confidence in our company and in the ability of our Components Group to meet the challenging requirements of a critical component for the B-2 bomber," said Paul Khanna, vice president of Phase Matrix. "It also affirms our capabilities in the field of complex microwave sub-assemblies."
Phase Matrix' new compact, high performance digitally tuned oscillator uses low phase noise, fast-settling voltage-controlled oscillators that are digitally linearized to provide high frequency accuracy over the frequency band and temperature range. This high resolution digitally tuned signal generation module offers low post tuning drift and high purity.
