L-SAR transmit/receive module TRM

Part of an L-Band Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR) system. This module provides amplification and phase/gain control of transmit and receive paths allowing the signals to be steered onto target region. The TRM connects to the antenna.

Features / technical details

  • L-Band operation.
  • H or V polarisation switching for TX, simultaneous dual H and V polarisation RX.
  • Approx. 40watt TX ouput
  • Approx. 2.8dB RX noise figure
  • 6 bit phase control on TX and RX.
  • 6 bit and 3 bit amplitude control respectively on RX and TX.
