Abstract
Vadum proposes to develop an innovative, highly integrated, power-conserving GaN T/R MMIC for radar applications. We will leverage expertise in high efficiency, high power Gallium Nitride Power Amplifiers, low loss GaN RF switches, Low Noise Amplifiers, GaN Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits, and wide experience with radar and Electronic Warfare systems. This MMIC will deliver new capability to the warfighter by enabling a low cost, high performance, thin phased array. The Phase I deliverable will be a comprehensive trade study and a complete MMIC design
