Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has recognized Cubic’s Nuvotronics team for demonstrating a new radio frequency technology.
The team received the Best Industry Paper Competition Award for a paper entitled “Monolithically Fabricated 4096-Element, PolyStrata Broadband D-band Array Demonstrator,” Cubic said Monday. IEEE’s Microwave Theory and Techniques Society presented the award that recognizes work on radio frequency or microwave products.
Nuvotronics, a part of Cubic Mission Solutions, worked with Nokia to demonstrate a PolyStrata-based 130-175 GHz flat-panel antenna array.
PolyStrata technology supports size, weight and power requirements, allowing the team to develop an antenna array thinner than a dime. The approximately 1-millimeter array demonstrated D-band radiating functions.
Jared Williams Jordan, the project’s principal investigator, presented the array’s paper in Boston.
