AbstractNext generation radar systems will be required to perform multiple missions. Tactical ground based systems will be called upon for supporting air defense with target identification and for air traffic control. The same system will be required to perform hostile weapons locating together with cueing of friendly weapons. It’s essential that all these missions be accomplished effectively—with a high degree of performance and readiness. Providing the ability for radar system operation in more than a single frequency band enables realizing optimum multi-mission performance. Lower frequencies generally provide superior long range surveillance capabilities while higher frequencies excel for angular accuracy and target discrimination. Sensis Corporation proposes an innovative and practical solution for realizing active phased array systems capable of operating on two distinct frequency bands with uncompromised performance. Our approach is system driven ensuring fulfillment of radar operational requirements while being amenable to performance growth, supportive of high system mobility, readily maintained, and cost effective. In the Phase I program, Sensis made substantial accomplishments in deriving architectures for multi-band active arrays, establishing Transmit/Receive unit requirements and budgets, and developing a dual-band T/R building block concept. For Phase II, Sensis will further advance from the concept stage towards functional demonstration vehicles.
