Low-cost systems operating at video rates within W-band have remained elusive – especially for stand-off and remote applications. Real time video rate imaging requires parallel detection modalities that traditionally led to high costs and calibration challenges. Substantial advances in low-cost packaging and chip-level integration driven by commercial millimeter-wave applications can now be applied to enhance performance and bring down the cost of these systems. A key innovation of the research will be proving components supporting architectures that integrate commercial HEMT and Schottky diode technology to reduce cost and improve performance. Total Base cost: $182,932.25.
