Dr. Robert A. Koslover - SARA, Inc., Cyprus, CA
SARA develops cutting-edge, multidisciplinary technologies in areas with high scientific and/or market potential and transforms these new technologies into successful products and services for clients in business, industry, and government.
The folk at SARA already know a device that aims HPMs at a target is an important contribution - a powerful but non-lethal weapon that blows out the defense, vehicle, and communications systems of a national enemies and fleeing criminals.
The method is non-lethal because HPMs emit very low levels of radiation, well within the range assumed safe to humans by health experts. Since the co-axial cables that conventionally transmit microwaves cannot be used with HPMs, SARA scientists are using COMSOL Multiphysics to develop new pyramidal horn waveguides that will solve their problem.
