Multi-beam Monopulse Radar For Airborne Sense And Avoid System

By Ashok Gorwaraa and Pavlo Molchanov, Planar Monolithics Industries

The next step in the development of a passive monopulse direction finder is the development of a multi-beam monopulse radar for Airborne Based Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) systems. This concept consists of a multi-beam  monopulse  radar  with  an  array  of  directional  antennas  that is positioned  on  a small  aircraft  or Unmanned  Aircraft  System  (UAS). The radar signals are then simultaneously transmitted and received by multiple angle shifted directional antennas with overlapping antenna patterns covering 360° for both horizontal and vertical coverage. This white paper presents in-depth information on the concept of the multi-beam monopulse radar, state-of-the-art Ground and Airborne Based Sense and Avoid Systems, and much more.
