FIRST RF will lead the Phase II effort and will leverage the system architecture of the MAINLINE system and integrate multifunctional SiGe integrated circuits (ICs) developed by The University of California San Diego under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Rebeiz. The SiGe devices developed during the Phase II effort will significantly reduce the power requirements of the MAINLINE system allowing for the SWaP-C of the system to be minimized while maintaining similar RF performance of the current state-of-the-art system. FIRST RF and UCSD will demonstrate a path to build a four-antenna input, four-beam output SiGe IC and a 16-input, four-beam output combiner IC which will drastically reduce the part count in the receive array. Secondarily, UCSD will perform an electromagnetic design of a single channel of a four-antenna input, four-beam output SiGe beamformer chip.
