Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), is receiving early reports from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center that its UltraCMOS®-based power management solution is delivering uninterrupted high performance while meeting the radiation-hardened and extreme-temperature requirements at the International Space Station.
NASA and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are collaborating on a first-of-its-kind portable radar device to detect the heartbeats and breathing patterns of victims trapped in large piles of rubble resulting from a disaster.
The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD awarded a SBIR Phase II program to Tahoe RF Semiconductor Inc. for developing a miniaturized radiation hardened beam-steerable GPS receiver front end for NASA spacecrafts. This product is designed to improve the signal sensitivity by 10 dB to 25 dB-Hz and improve performance against multipath interferences.
NuWaves Engineeringhas been awarded a contract to design and manufacture prototype High Efficiency Switching Power amplifiers for Earth Radar Observation Systems (HESPEROS) by NASA, as part of the government agency’s efforts to pursue smaller and more affordable spacecraft.
