Abstract : Accomplishments and pertinent information under the Joint Services Electronics Program (JSEP) for the reporting period September 1992. September 1995 are summarized The JSBP program provides the research baseline for all three military services in the expanding electronic sciences requiring interdisciplinary efforts among sub-areas of electronics. The central theme of this research is to resolve issues that have prevented wide-spread use of millimeter wave electronics. Considered are issues that have arisen primarily due to the lack of a coherent approach between solid state (device) research and electromagnetic (circuit and component) research. The device research takes into account the electromagnetic interaction with the circuit and the system environment while the millimeter wave integrated circuit, as the electromagnetic system, considers the interaction with the solid state devices from the outset of analysis and design. Several research areas are synergistically combined. Research in the exploration of novel material systems and devices structures benefits from device simulation efforts. Novel integrated circuit configurations that exploit the best performance from the devices are studied. The devices and circuits are then implemented into quasi-optical monolithic arrays.
