Paper Abstract

We are developing integrated antennas and receivers for millimeter-wave applications. As the remote-sensing frequencies are pushed higher into the millimeter and submillimeterwave regions, the integrated receivers become very competitive with standard waveguide receivers. The integrated units consist of an antenna integrated directly with a matching network/mixer. Integrated receivers are easier to manufacture, more reliable and much less expensive than waveguide receivers. The integration also allows the use of linear or two- dimensional arrays without a dramatic increase in cost.
