Miniature Quickscan Receiver
Agency / Branch:
DOD / SOCOM
Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobility. This proposal is to conduct a feasibility study on using a CMOS based RFIC implementation to miniaturize the front end of the Miniature Quickscan Receiver. The receiver front end will consist of the following components: bandpass filter (BPF), low noise amplifier (LNA), image rejection filter, mixer, IF filter, and IF amplifier. GaAs HBT technology will also be explored for comparison. Designs, simulation results, and conclusions will be delivered upon project completion.
