Paper Abstract

This paper discusses three brassboard millimeter wave systems which are being built for the Army by Georgia Tech. These systems are: (1) a 94 GHz coherent transmitter/receiver, (2) a 140 GHz incoherent transmitter/receiver, and (3) a 220 GHz radar. The first two systems are to be used primarily for evaluation of millimeter guidance techniques, and the third will be used to evaluate performance of a 220 GHz radar system in a tank-mounted, target acquisition application. All of the systems use extended interaction oscillator transmitters and Schottky-barrier mixer receivers, and the radar employs a unique quasi-optical duplexer, and an all solid-state receiver.
