When lightning strikes, thunder follows. Can light-to-sound phenomena like this be harnessed in optical fibers or waveguides the size of a human hair?
During Phases 1 and 2, the team demonstrated a capability to perform radio frequency filtering in components 10,000 times smaller than those used today. This program promises to significantly reduce the size, weight, power and cost for communication systems and provide the opportunity to add new capabilities such as networking, electronic warfare and advanced waveforms without increasing the volume of existing solutions. In Phase 3, the team will be tasked with a final demonstration showing this filtering approach can be achieved in a high-performance radio.
Once this is developed,
