ELMSFORD, N.Y., 22 March 2006. Hypres Inc., a developer of superconducting microelectronics (SME) technology, has been awarded two U.S. Army contracts totaling $139,829 to improve digital filtering and interfacing within radio systems.

Hypres was awarded a $69,999, six-month Phase 1 Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract to develop high-speed digital filters for multi-band Digital-RFTM channelizing receivers.

Under the terms of the contract, the team at Hypres will develop a 40GHz decimation filter. The company also was awarded a $69,830, six-month Phase 1 SBIR to develop the digital interface between the company's performance transceivers and COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) SCA-compliant electronics.

Hypres is employing SME technology to provide the U.S. Department of Defense with an All-Digital RFTM receiver and an All-Digital RFTM transceiver. When completed, the All-Digital RFTM transceiver will be capable of digitizing received radio signals directly from the antenna without analog pre-processing, and digitally combining and pre-distorting outgoing signals at RF frequencies.
