Research Institution
HYPRES is pleased to propose is to develop the physically small antenna Direction Finding (DF) subsystem capable of environmental noise limited reception based on SQIF technology and implemented using HTS materials. In this phase I project, we will focus on the analysis and design of the integrated SQIF antennas and low-noise amplifiers configured for HF DF applications. We will analyze and optimize DF antenna configurations capable of achieving high direction estimation accuracy of <~2 degree. The analysis will also be focused on achieving high gain, sensitivity, signal to noise ratio, and spur free dynamic range. Detailed test plans will be prepared for full evaluation of these devices at a field test range
