Spotlight On Military, Defense & Aerospace Solutions
The Basics Of Military EMC Testing

Although the onus is not on the EMC test engineers and test laboratories to make the decisions on test levels, limits, and requirements, they are still required to identify test specifications and define test procedures, as well as perform the tests. 

Improving The Capabilities Of Cognitive Radar & EW Systems

This application note addresses the challenges that mode-agile or wartime reserve mode (WARM) radar and electromagnetic warfare (EW) threat emitters pose, as well as the architecture of cognitive artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems and how they deliver effective RF countermeasures.

Behind The Scenes: Perseverance Rover’s “Seven Minutes Of Terror”

Go behind the scenes of NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover, which landed on the Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021.

A Custom Approach To Large Capacitor Assembly

Achieving high capacitance means going big. But how do you do that while still maximizing board space? At Knowles Precision Devices, we’ve developed a new method for building customizable large capacitor assemblies that capitalize on the vertical space above the circuit board.

Unique mmWave Designs And Customized Products For Satcom, Radar, EW, And ECM Systems

Systems operating in the Ka-band, Q-band, and other high-frequency bands present more significant SWaP-C challenges than systems operating at lower frequencies, demanding more expertise from component designers.

Communication Is Key: Range Extension For UAVs

Technology continues to be the catalyst of human evolution, from the stick and stone to unmanned arial vehicles (UAVs). Often taken for granted, that pocket watch collecting dust on the shelf has a story to tell. It took thousands of years before humans had the luxury of tracking time with ease.

Design And Analysis Of A Proximity Fuse Antenna For An Air Defense Missile

Air defense missiles typically require a proximity fuse, priming the missile warhead to detonate when the missile is close enough to the target. One of the ways that such a proximity fuse can be implemented is with a small radar that is used in short-range low-power mode. 

LTCC Mixer For Instrumentation & Military Applications

This application note discusses the features and capabilities of the high-performance SIM-U742MH+ mixer from Mini-Circuits and how it is designed for the best instrumentation and transmitter performance.
