  3. Measuring Inter-Pulse Noise In Radar Amplifiers

    To start off our second day here at IMS 2018, George Solomon from Communications & Power Industries (CPI), Beverly Microwave Division presents a technique for measuring inter-pulse noise within radar amplifiers. Ideally, an amplifier would have no inter-pulse noise measured to KTB of -174 dBm/Hz. Check out the video to learn how to make sure this measurement happens.

  4. How To Speak Radar: Basic Fundamentals And Applications

    The evolution of radar has grown steadily over the decades to its present level that employs sophisticated computerized techniques which has stimulated the development of increasingly complex components. This white paper provides a basic introduction to radar technologies and to the application of radar equipment.

  9. CFA Theory Of Operation

    A CFA is a vacuum electron device (VED) which might best be described as part magnetron and part traveling wave tube (TWT). This device is used to generate power with high efficiency and voltage levels of a magnetron while the electronic interaction is with a traveling wave. This white paper further discusses CFA characteristics and its operational theory.

  10. TWT Theory Of Operation

    TWTs incorporate many basic components, including an electron gun, an RF circuit, an attenuator, and a collector. This white paper further discusses TWT characteristics and operational theory, including the effects of input/output conditions on TWTs, and cooling requirements.
