Non-NASA commercial applications include: ¬ï Phased arrays for ballistic missile defense (BMD), (The DBF technology is commonly quoted as a "huge leap" for radar-based missile defense systems), ¬ï Space-based radar for military/intelligence targets or earthquake detection, ¬ï Space navigation systems ¬ï Conformal arrays for UAVs, ¬ï Telecommunications, ¬ï Medical device manufacturers, ¬ï Computer networks, hard disk readout circuits, digital oscilloscopes, etc. (these applications require 500MSPS sampling speeds and the contemporary converters used are generally <10-bit.) ¬ï Power-limited applications, such as laptops, wireless devices and PDAs. NASA applications include radar, imaging, detectors, space radio astronomy, and communications circuits. Space radar systems stand to benefit from the combination of high resolution and low power of the proposed ADC. The technology is ideal for NASA JPL's radar research program, UAVSAR program, and many other critical communication circuits.
