AbstractnGimat proposes to develop low-cost, lightweight antenna array and beamformer for Ka-band radar systems. The sensor system is to support the safe approach and landing during brownout, whiteout, and sea spray as well as improved safety for night and no/low visibility low altitude pilotage. In Phase I, we will study trade-offs of various antenna architectures, design and analyze the antenna and beamformer, develop the critical component, and build and test critical component. In Phase II we will build a prototype antenna array, along with the appropriate hardware/software to meet the cost/weight/performance goals.
