nGimat, a world-class developer and manufacturer of nanotechnology-based engineered materials, has developed Scandia-doped tungsten nanopowders that enable thermionic cathodes to achieve higher power or higher frequency in RF (or higher frequency) applications. Today, these cathodes support numerous Navy applications that utilize vacuum-tube-based RF electronics. By providing higher power or higher frequency, cathodes produced with nGimat’s nanopowders enable various strategic applications (e.g., next-generation satellites, jamming systems, and communications). Additionally, the service life of the cathode, and therefore the larger system, can be increased by over 200%. We have demonstrated the high purity nanoscandia and improved mixing capabilities necessary for technical success. nGimat seeks to partner with an integrator of cathode-based systems capable of developing and manufacturing finished products and identifying additional commercial applications for nanoscandia.
