Abstract:

The ultimate goal of this Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) effort is to design, build, and integrate flight-ready custom electronics for a 220-channel MMW distributed-aperture imager. This work bases on a previous SBIR project, in which we constructed a single-channel prototype of the phase control electronics in a laboratory (breadboard) environment. To enable control of a 220-channel system ready for flight testing, the prototype functionality must not only be appropriately scaled, but also must sufficiently address size, weight, power, and operational environment considerations. In addition, two more areas of the electronics must be provided: PIN switching control electronics, and an image acquisition system. By the end of this CPP effort, we will have integrated our custom control electronics with PSI''s distributed-aperture millimeter-wave imaging system. Specifically, we will leverage the power of reconfigurable commodity hardware to replace the current control system, which is not appropriate for airframe deployment.
