Small, Sensitive Antennas

Researchers create metamaterials by carefully designing and fabricating novel structures to exhibit patterns of electromagnetic properties—specifically, dielectric permittivity and/or magnetic permeability—at the micro-or nano-scale. This special spatial arrangement of elements ensures that the volumetric arrays...

Army to Get New IED Detector Technology

Detecting improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan requires constant, intensive monitoring using rugged equipment. When Sandia researchers first demonstrated a modified miniature synthetic aperture...

Many applications can benefit from pushing software radio functions up the mast to the antenna as a viable alternative to traditional rack-mounted receiver systems. New technology...

When a missile is launched against an enemy target, it would be nice to have a lot of good information about that target. But when "decision makers push the fire button, they may have...

This article introduces the rationale and techniques involved with MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output)-based communication systems. The communication impairments due to...
