Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has recognized Cubicâ€™s Nuvotronics team for demonstrating a new radio frequency technology.
The team received the Best Industry Paper Competition Award for a paper entitled â€œMonolithically Fabricated 4096-Element, PolyStrata Broadband D-band Array Demonstrator,â€ Cubic said Monday. IEEEâ€™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 projectâ€™s principal investigator, presented the arrayâ€™s paper in Boston.
