There is a need to test the effectiveness of US assets (e.g. weapons and platforms) against the evolving adversaries’ radar systems. Current practice is time consuming and expensive, thus limiting the assessment of the performance of these assets. The desired approach is to have a single transmitter platform that is capable of synthesizing multiple types of waveforms at different frequencies emulating the radar system. The desired versatile transmitter should include high-power wide-band transmitter with a phased array antenna and fitted within a 3ft x 3ft x3ft form factor. To address this challenge, Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes to develop a Small Ultra-wideband Phased Array Transmitter (SUPAT) system to emulate the adversary radar system. SUPAT will use three UWB electrically small array antennas to cover the frequency bands from 100MHz to 30GHz. SUPAT will be composed of several Super Element Modules (SEM) which have high performance and are highly modular and scalable. The SEM will host the radar waveform synthesis firmware/ software and will integrate a high performance RF transmitter covering 100MHz to 30GHz operation.
