Research Institution
The U.S. Army is currently investing in the development of affordable electronics for defense systems. Specifically, affordable active phased arrays are being explored for the purpose of reducing the cost of missile seekers. As threat types, ranges and ballistics become more and more abundant and diverse, there becomes a increasing need for missile seekers than provide guidance with a high degree of accuracy to insure lethality upon intercepting the threat. As the threat matrix increases so does the need for affordable seekers. The focus of the proposed effort is on the design of affordable active phased array sensors at Ku- and Ka-bands. Specifically, in this proposal TSC presents Ku-band and Ka-band active phased array solutions that address affordability, reliability, size/weight and thermal management.
