Title: Antenna and transceiver for transmitting a secure signal

Abstract

An accelerated superluminal polarization currents (ASPC) transceiver includes an ASPC transmitter including a plurality of ASPC radiator elements, the ASPC transmitter transmitting a radio signal that is focused in a target direction and scrambled in other directions; and a radio receiver, wherein the center of a pulse of the radio signal has a transit time t.sub.c from an end of the ASPC transmitter, at a first position -x.sub.0, to a second position x along the ASPC transmitter given by the following equation: t.sub.c=[R.sup.2+x.sub.0.sup.2+2Rx.sub.0 cos .psi..sub.0].sup.1/2-[R.sup.2+x.sup.2+2Rx cos .psi..sub.0].sup.1/2, where R is a target distance from the ASPC transmitter and .psi..sub.0 is a target angle and > ##EQU00001##

  • A low-power adaptive array for transmitting a signal may be used by itself in low-power applications or in high-power applications in conjunction with a commercial radio transmitter to optimize the radiation field of the transmitter used. The adaptive system comprises a continuous-wave (C-W) signal source having a certain amount of power. A power divider hybrid circuit, whose input is connected to the output of the C-W generator, divides its output power into N+1 parts. N quadrature hybrid circuits, one in each of N channels, whose inputs are connected to the output of the power divider hybrid circuit, divide their inputmore » signals into two quadrature components. One channel, a reference channel, does not require a quadrature circuit. A plurality of attenuators, each having inputs from the power divider hybrid circuit and the quadrature hybrid circuits, attenuates the power received from the quadrature hybrid circuit. A summer, having two inputs which are connected to the two outputs of its respective attenuator, sums its input signals. A linear amplifier, whose input is connected to the output of the summer, amplifies its input signal. An impedance matching network receives the signal from the linear amplifier and matches it to the input to an antenna. A plurality of monitors, distributed at various strategic locations within the environment, receives and monitors the phase and amplitude of the transmitted signal at the several locations. An antenna current monitor collects the currents from all the monitors, and transmits them by telemetry to a monitoring circuit, which transmits them directly to a microprocessor. The microprocessor, whose input is connected to the receiver of the monitored signals and whose output is connected to the inputs of the attenuators, processes the monitored signals and sends signals to the attenuator, to cause the attenuator to be adjusted in a manner to optimize a desired parameter.« less
  • A transceiver for facilitating two-way wireless communication between a baseband application and other nodes in a wireless network, wherein the transceiver provides baseband communication networking and necessary configuration and control functions along with transmitter, receiver, and antenna functions to enable the wireless communication. More specifically, the transceiver provides a long-range wireless duplex communication node or channel between the baseband application, which is associated with a mobile or fixed space, air, water, or ground vehicle or other platform, and other nodes in the wireless network or grid. The transceiver broadly comprises a communication processor; a flexible telemetry transceiver including a receivermore » and a transmitter; a power conversion and regulation mechanism; a diplexer; and a phased array antenna system, wherein these various components and certain subcomponents thereof may be separately enclosed and distributable relative to the other components and subcomponents.« less
  • This invention relates to a flexible printed circuit board that is used in connection with an optical transmitter, receiver or transceiver module. In one embodiment, the flexible printed circuit board has flexible metal layers in between flexible insulating layers, and the circuit board comprises: (1) a main body region orientated in a first direction having at least one electrical or optoelectronic device; (2) a plurality of electrical contact pads integrated into the main body region, where the electrical contact pads function to connect the flexible printed circuit board to an external environment; (3) a buckle region extending from one endmore » of the main body region; and (4) a head region extending from one end of the buckle region, and where the head region is orientated so that it is at an angle relative to the direction of the main body region. The electrical contact pads may be ball grid arrays, solder balls or land-grid arrays, and they function to connect the circuit board to an external environment. A driver or amplifier chip may be adapted to the head region of the flexible printed circuit board. In another embodiment, a heat spreader passes along a surface of the head region of the flexible printed circuit board, and a window is formed in the head region of the flexible printed circuit board. Optoelectronic devices are adapted to the head spreader in such a manner that they are accessible through the window in the flexible printed circuit board.« less
