Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Eastern OptX, long recognized as the world’s leader in microwave delay lines for radar target simulation, introduced its Series 10000 Radar Scenario Generator. Various components of this system will be on display at the International Microwave Symposium on June 3-5 in Tampa, FL.
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) has awarded Raytheon Co. an $8.5 million base contract to design the Flexible Distributed Array Radar (FlexDAR), enabling dynamic multi-mission radars capable of executing a variety of functions including surveillance, communications and electronic warfare.
Launched on 3 April, ESA’s Sentinel-1A satellite has already delivered its first radar images of Earth. They offer a tantalising glimpse of the kind of operational imagery that this new mission will provide for Europe’s ambitious Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.
Cree has added four new gallium nitride (GaN) high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) to its product portfolio at Digi-Key, the sole distributor for Cree RF components. Respectively based on Cree’s high power density 50V, 0.25μm and 0.4μm GaN on silicon carbide (SiC) foundry processes, the new X-Band and S-Band components exhibit high efficiency, high power gain, and wide bandwidth capabilities.
The demonstrator radar developed by Indra for detecting objects in space has successfully passed the validation tests performed within the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness (SSA) preparation programme.
Pre-launch preparations for the Sentinel-1A satellite, carrying an Airbus Defence and Space built radar instrument, are in full swing at Europe´s Kourou Spaceport in French Guiana. The satellite will mark a new era of Earth observation.
Sapienza University of Rome Professor Stefano Pisa supervised a graduate research project that used AWR’s Microwave Office® circuit design software to model, analyze, and design ultra wideband (UWB) radars for the novel use of remotely monitoring breath activity.
