Research Institution

A low-cost full-two-dimensional electronically scanned W-Band active imaging system can enable high-resolution day/night/all-weather sensor systems. To meet the demanding performance requirements associated with these imagers while maintaining a low system cost, FIRST RF proposes a pragmatic approach using COTS SiGe MMICs and novel phased array/packaging. FIRST RFs approach leverages existing low-cost phased array technology and scanning millimeter-wave (MMW) sensors for radar and communication systems to meet the portability and robustness required for military environments. The FIRST RF approach will support fast scanning of up to 30 frames per second (fps) and a minimum range of 100m in a small air-cooled package.
