Advanced Transmitter and Receiver (T/R) Module Technology For Space Radar
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Toyon Research and Rockwell Scientific propose to develop a single chip T/R module using InP HEMT technology that is optimized for minimal power consumption in receive-mode -- a dramatically different paradigm than for airborne radar. The choice of InP HEMT allows exceptionally low DC power consumption with very low noise figure and yet high power-added efficiency on transmit. Building upon a previous joint effort that demonstrated the feasibility of such a chip in simulation, Toyon proposes to again team with Rockwell Scientific to demonstrate prototype T/R module MMICs in Phase II. In Phase I, the previous design will be enhanced with additional innovative features to reduce chip costs, improve performance further, and address potential radiation effects.
