Abstract
PRECISE CHARACTERRIZATION OF THE PULSED RF SIGNAL RESPONSE OF A MODULE IS OFTEN NECESSARY TO ENSURE ITS PERFORMANCE IN A SYSTEM. SOME SYSTEMS REQUIRE THAT MANY MODULES OF A TYPE BE ACCURATELY CHARACTERIZED IN GAIN AND PHASE RESPONSE OVER A RANGE OF FREQUENCY AND SIGNAL LEVELS. A APPROACH TO ACCURATELY MEASURING THESE PARAMETERS USING CURRENTLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTS UNDER COMPUTER CONTROL IS DESCRIBED. A TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED THAT WILL LEAD TO DEFINITIVE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR AN AUTOMATIC PULSE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM (APMS). THE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF SELECTED COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION PRODUCTS ARE USED TO HELP ENSURE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILTY OF THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WITHIN CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART LIMITATIONS.
