Efficient Superposition of Communications and Radar Waveforms (Raytheon)
Bathgate, Daniel Brown, Greg Meyer, Joseph Poon, Jason
This SCOPE project supports simultaneous transmission of communication and radar signals through a phased antenna array. A phased antenna array is a grid of independent antennas that can focus different signals in different directions through constructive and destructive interference. This team deals with the selection of communications and radar waveforms that can be transmitted through a non-linear amplifier with acceptable levels of signal distortion. We have reached our conclusions through a combination of simulation and RF hardware testing.
