Abstract:

Microwave millimeter wave imaging systems offer the advantage of longer range performance in adverse atmospheric conditions as a helicopter landing aid. A Ka-Band radar system offers the resolution required to determine safe landing and takeoff conditions as well as a package size that can be incorporated within the weight and size constraints of military and commercial helicopter platforms. An electronically scanned phased array is the ideal choice for the above requirement from rapid scanning, lower profile, and reliability standpoint. Historically, cost of a Ka-band phased array for radar applications has limited the use of electronically scanned antennas. FIRST RF has developed a concept and is proposing a unique solution to this complex problem with a very simple and innovative solution that has the potential for a profound impact on the proposed system as well as other radar systems.
