FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has proposed the FCC maintain the existing health standards for exposure to RF radiation. The recommendation is supported by Jeffrey Shuren, Director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
This year's IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting ran 7–12 July in Atlanta. Microwave Journal spent a day at the conference, largely checking in with exhibitors, and files this summary.
NASA has awarded Micro Harmonics a Phase II SBIR contract to develop cryogenic mmWave isolators. The development program will enable the company to add cryogenic options for every standard waveguide band from WR-15 (50 to 75 GHz) to WR-3.4 (220 to 330 GHz).
In order to achieve the conditions needed for fusion, First Light Fusion (FLF) launched a projectile to hypervelocities at a target which requires very high levels of precision to achieve and so they selected 32 digitizers from Spectrum Instrumentation to monitor the results.
Arralis has released an E-Band automotive radar, branded Corvus, saying the radar’s performance is better than other systems in the automotive marketplace, specifically detection range, elevation resolution and scan area.
The International Microwave Power Institute(IMPI) announced it has formed a Solid State RF Energy Section, comprised of IMPI members dedicated to realizing solid-state RF energy’s potential as a clean, highly efficient and controllable heat and power source.
Ampleon has released the first of a family of LDMOS RF power devices based upon its Advanced Rugged Technology (ART), a derivative of its proven ninth-generation high voltage LDMOS process. ART was developed to enable extremely rugged transistors with operating voltages up to 65 V and high breakdown.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced that the company's V2X test solution (E6953A DSRC V2X) has earned OmniAir Qualified Test Equipment (OQTE) status from the OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for intelligent transportation systems (ITS), tolling and connected vehicles.
Orbital Micro Systems (OMS) scored a successful launch of the first weather observation satellite in its Global Environmental Monitoring System (GEMS) constellation, from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia. A D-Band microwave radiometer is the core sensor on the satellite.
