HRL Laboratories has received a DARPA award to significantly advance the technology and manufacturing readiness levels of its leading-edge T3 GaN technology. Integrated circuits made by layering GaN onto silicon carbide substrate wafers offer the best combination of efficiency, output power, and survivability among radio frequency and millimeter-wave semiconductor technologies.
Dan Sievenpiper earned his PhD in 1999 from UCLA, where he invented the high-impedance electromagnetic surface. Dan joined HRL Laboratories later that year, and during the next 11 years, Dan and his team developed new electromagnetic structures with an emphasis on small, conformal, tunable, and steerable antennas.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, will leverage electronic brain-cell technology for a new computer architecture that promises more compact, energy-efficient, and capable systems. The program is part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program Foundations Required for Novel Compute (FRANC).
HRL Laboratories, LLC, will join the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) in its Autonomy Assurance (AA) program with the Expressive Assurance Case Toolkit (ExACT), a set of algorithmic tools that will mathematically verify that the autonomous driving system’s algorithms are correct and safe.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, Vice President Leslie Momoda has won the 2018 UCLA Henry Samueli Engineering Professional Achievement Award. This award honors the achievements of UCLA Engineering alumni in their chosen fields, including academia, industry, and entrepreneurship.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has announced the launch of its first podcast, HRL’s History of the Future, which will focus on the famed Hughes Research facility’s past and HRL’s present advancements in science and technology.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has received an award to participate in project AMEBA, the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) initiative to develop low-frequency radio transmission antennas that are vastly more compact and efficient than the massive existing arrays used to communicate in traditionally radio-denied conditions, such as with submerged submarines.
