Terahertz Electronics Research for Defense: Novel Technology and Science

Authors:
Dwight Woolard
Abstract:
The general objectives and motivations for a terahertz-frequency (THz) electronics research program are overviewed and discussed from the U.S. Army and national defense perspective. The potential impact of THz electronics research is defined in the context of the Army's future strategic vision. As illustrated, THz electronics has the potential for augmenting and enhancing the Army's concept of a Future Combat System within a microsensor network scenario. Hence, this paper demonstrates that present Army investments in THz electronics research are future enablers for a full spectrum (electromagnetic) capability in battlefield sensing and communications.
