Abstract
IAI proposes the design of a Waveform Agile Telemetry Transmitter (WATT) which will support simultaneous dual-band S-C band operation (S-band , 2200-2400 MHz and C-band selectable between 4400-4950 MHz and 5091- 5250 MHz), to achieve the goals of this solicitation. Our proposed WATT architecture will employ state of the art, highly integrated, wideband Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMIC) and reconfigurable digital processor to achieve desired miniaturization and multi-band capability. Low power, wideband Phase Lock Loops (PLL) and I-Q modulators will manage the dual band RF up-conversion. IAI has teamed up with Purdue University (PU) for the proposed STTR program. PU will develop the wideband RF power combiner and power amplifier (PA) that will simultaneously work in S-C bands. This will address MDA requirement for simultaneous S-C band telemetry transmission as mentioned in the solicitation and we will need a single wideband PA to achieve the 10Watt peak output power requirement. The complete WATT module will be a three PCB stack each with 2in x 3in dimensions.
