At Artech House, we ask our authors what problems their books can help readers solve. In this series, we share what our authors aim to do in their writing. Read on to find out what Anil Pandey, who wrote Practical Microstrip and Printed Antenna Design had to say.
Anokiwave Inc. announced further expansion of its SATCOM beamformer IC family with the new Generation-2 Ku-Band set of ICs for the design and commercial deployment of phased array-based ground terminals.
Altair announced that Daniel Ung, a Masters student at Curtin University in Perth, Australia, has won the 2016 FEKO Student Competition, an annual international contest organized in support of engineering education and academic excellence.
To address the need for radio systems that can adapt to changing environments on the fly and that can be easily reconfigured once in the field, BAE Systems has developed the MATRICS (Microwave Array Technology for Reconfigurable Integrated Circuits) chip.
Smiths Microwave Subsystems is pleased to announce that advanced surface mount technology has led TRAK to deliver the first-ever circulator that can be used in automated assembly of phased array radar assemblies. You’ll find this product and several other microwave component and assembly innovations on display at the Smiths Microwave Subsystems Booth #721 at EDI CON USA 2016.
Objects in space will soon be monitored by a radar array for the U.S. Air Force’s Space Fence as part of Lockheed Martin’s new test site representative of the larger system under construction on the remote Kwajalein Island.
Romania will gain greater situational awareness with two new TPS-77 radars under a contract agreement with Lockheed Martin. Like all next-generation radars made by Lockheed Martin, the company is planning to include innovative new Digital Array Row Transceivers (DART), which lead to energy efficiency and greater performance for the Lockheed Martin suite of radars.
M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc. announced that following the successful field trial of the Multifunction Phased Array Radar (MPAR) prototype system, it has received an order for Scalable Planar ARray (SPAR) Tiles from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory for use in the first full-scale MPAR system.
Comtech PST proudly introduces another new gallium nitride (GaN) amplifier for X-Band applications. This class AB linear design operates over the full 9 to10 GHz frequency range and is ideal for use in phase array radar applications, as a TWT replacement or for a microwave communication link.
