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.
University of Rome graduate class uses Microwave Office to design a UWB impulse radar system for breath-activity monitoring
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.
