Super-conducting-microelectronics developer Hypres received two contracts totaling approximately $1.5 million from the U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center for the development of digital superconductivity electronics for military satellite communications. Under a SBIR Phase II contract valued at $730,000, the company will develop an analog-to-digital converter capable of digitizing Ka/EHF band RF signals. A second SBIR Phase II $730,000 contract is for a receiver comprised of digital superconductor electronics and commercial field programmable gate arrays, according to Hypres.
