Some Project Highlights
MegaWave Corporation designed, developed and manufactured a self-contained S-Band radar with an active phased array system. The design features GaN power amplifiers and GaN low Noise Amplifiers. The radar is powered by a separate rack of DC power supplies. The prime power for the radar is a transportable 3 KW generator.
MegaWave redesigned the internal antenna system for a buoy antenna to include operation at the 902 – 928 MHz and 2.4 – 2.485 GHz ISM bands. The redesign included both improved performance and a reduction in overall weight.
MegaWave has designed, fabricated and delivered airborne, vehicular, UAV and body worn Direction Finding antennas for a number of customers. These antennas are typically designed and built to a customer’s individual requirements and to match the customer’s specific DF algorithms, in terms of the number of elements, element layout and frequency bands. MegaWave has a number of proprietary wideband elements operating in the VHF and UHF bands that can be customized for a specific application.
Examples of special MegaWave projects include antennas developed to support the Navy’s new Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite system, antennas developed to support IARPA’s HFGeo program, wideband fragmented apertures, genetically optimized antenna designs and numerous others. Under contract to special government and other customers, we have designed and delivered antennas for many unique applications. These have included disguised and covert antennas, antennas for Unattended Ground Sensors, inflatable, and unique deployable antennas. We value the privacy of our customers and would be pleased to discuss your specific requirements with you in confidence.
MegaWave has developed a number of wideband and multiband vehicular antennas operating in the VHF and UHF bands. New and existing designs for wideband and multi-band operation can be customized to meet customer specific requirements. Frequency coverage ranges from high HF through C-band.
MegaWave has developed and delivered portable HF/VHF/UHF groundwave path loss and received power measuring sets for near-earth, on-surface and buried antennas. We have also developed an innovative fast-running groundwave computer code for inhomogeneous and irregular terrain with and without obstructions such as trees, buildings and snow. This code accurately predicts near-earth propagation loss over a wide range of frequencies. Additional projects have included investigations of textile-based antennas and transmission lines as well as fragmented antennas.
MegaWave developed the Multi Polarization Antenna System in support of IARPA’s HFGeo program. The antenna operates in the HF band and provides orthogonal TM mode elements as well as a TE mode element. The antenna elements are less than 1/25 of the wavelength at its lowest operating frequency.
MegaWave has performed extensive design and research using buried and on-surface antennas that exploit the surface and lateral wave modes of wave propagation in support of DARPA’s Buried Unattended Ground Sensors (BUGS) program. Numerous buried antenna designs over several frequency bands through high UHF were analyzed to determine the best frequency/antenna combination capable of achieving the required performance for a BUGS system.
