Abstract
MILLIMETER WAVES ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF SATELLITE COMMUNICAITONS, ELECTRONIC WARFARE, AND MISSILE RADAR. UNTIL RECENTLY, THE PROSPECTS OF AMPLIFYING SIGNIFICANT LEVELS OF MILLIMETER POWER USING SOLID STATE DEVICES HAVE DEPENDED ON IMPATT DIODES WHICH EXHIBIT LOW EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY. SPIRE PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN INP-BASED HETEROJUNCTION BI-POLAR TRANSISTOR (HBT) TECHNOLOGY FOR THE AMPLIFICAITON OF MILLIMETER WAVES WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY, SPECIFICALLY AT FREQUENCIES OF L40 AND 220 GHZ.
