Paper Abstract

A tactically sized 35 GHz millimeter wave (MMW) radar sensor has been developed by Martin Marietta Orlando Aerospace to demonstrate functional performance in a compact package. Due to the increased emphasis on packaging, we designed this sensor to meet all required performance parameters and still fit within the seeker envelope of most modern-guided weapons. An envelope of 7 inches diameter X 17 inches long was achieved by employing a planar array mono-pulse antenna and microwave integrated circuits (MIC) for the transmitter and receiver. The radar sensor is fully coherent, dual circular polarized, and includes a two channel monopulse receiver. A nontactically configured programmable digital signal processor was developed for use with the radar sensor to form a complete testbed radar seeker.
