Compact Radar Transceiver With Included Calibration
Volume and weight are reduced without performance penalties.
The Digital Beamforming Synthetic
Aperture Radar (DBSAR) is an eight-channel
phased array radar system that employs
solid-state radar transceivers, a microstrip
patch antenna, and a reconfigurable waveform
generator and processor unit. The
original DBSAR transceiver design utilizes
connectorized electronic components ...

Software Defined Radio With Parallelized Software Architecture
This software implements softwaredefined
radio procession over multicore,
multi-CPU systems in a way that
maximizes the use of CPU resources in
the system. The software treats each
processing step in either a communications
or navigation modulator or
demodulator system as an independent,
threaded block. Each threaded block is
defined with ...
