ThermAvant Technologies selected for Air Force Phase I SBIR

Passive-Solid State Power Amplifier Thermal Management

ThermAvant's proposal for Passive Solid-State Power Amplifier Thermal Management submitted under SBIR Topic Number AF161-086 has been selected for award by the Department of Defense and the Air Force Research Laboratory. The pending award aims to develop low-cost, low-mass thermal management solutions to address the high heat flux and temperature of next generation GaN power amplifiers or phased arrays. The proposed heat transfer technology will have use aboard DoD satellites and be equally applicable for use on commercial satellites, as well as many other terrestrial electronics.
