Miniaturized P-Band Beamforming Synthetic Aperture Radar Transceiver

Abstract: The next generation synthetic aperture radar (SAR) instruments for the study of Earth and planets will employ multiple-input multiple output architectures and advanced beamforming techniques to significantly enhance the capabilities of remote sensing radars. One key component in realizing these instruments is a compact, lightweight and power efficient radar transceiver. To this end a P-band radar transceiver was developed to advance the technical readiness level (TRL) level toward spaceborne …
