The US Department of Energy (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory is to receive US$1.4m from the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop an advanced phased-array radar and communication systems for military and commercial applications.

The DOE will develop high-performance integrated diamond microelectro-mechanical system (MEMS) and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors devices (CMOS) for radar and mobile communications using an developed and patented Ultrananocrystalline Diamond (UNCD) film technology.

The integration of capacitive radio frequency MEMS and CMOS devices will enable rapid electronic steering of radar beams to substantially improve radar speed and precision.

Argonne’s programme partners are Advanced Diamond Technologies, Innovative Micro Technology, MEMtronics Corp, Peregrine Semiconductor the University of Pennsylvania and Leigh University.
