Research Institution
Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) proposes to design and build an advanced, pulsed solid-state transmitter capable of replacing legacy klystron amplifiers in Navy radars. The new transmitter will integrate commercially available semiconductors into a novel DTI combiner architecture, and will deliver higher availability, simplified maintenance, and an overall reduction of operating costs in comparison to existing klystron systems. This particular architecture is well-suited for applications from UHF to S-band and beyond. Pulsed versions of this system are scalable to a megawatt power level for high duty factor coherent radars. An L-band version of the transmitter will be discussed in this proposal.
