An Introduction to Passive Radar Systems

This whitepaper explores the innovative concept of passive radar and its many advantages. We cover its operating principles, basics of bistatic radars and the concept of EoOs. We also evaluate the role of satellite illumination and forward scattering in passive radar and highlight real-world examples of operational passive radar systems.

Multi-Tone Testing, Theory, and Practice

Multi-tone testing has many benefits. While the multi-tone method was initially implemented to increase the speed of IEC 61000-4-3 radiated immunity testing, it has been found that this method also improves equipment efficiency, offers greater flexibility to truly test the equipment (EUT) under real-world threat conditions, and can be fully compliant to standards.

Disruptive MMICs for mmWave: Power | Efficiency | Linearity

The promise of mmWave spectrum for communications has been realized more slowly than hoped. Simultaneously optimizing for output power, linearity, and efficiency over wide bandwidths is more challenging than expected — limiting system capabilities such as range and data rates. This white paper discusses mmTron's approach to overcoming these challenges.

Effects of Mobility on mmWave Beamforming in Dynamic, Urban Environments

In 5G and 6G, mmWaves bring the promise of new, high bandwidth frequency bands. Propagation losses and fast fading due to increasingly mobile devices and short wavelengths pose challenges for these new concepts. This paper explores the effectiveness of massive MIMO beamforming at mitigating mmWave propagation challenges using Wireless InSite and its mmWave hybrid beamformer capabilities to transmit data streams to a sedan driving in central Manhattan.

Large Platform Co-Site Interference Mitigation

Analyzing co-site interference using electromagnetics simulation solutions requires:

  • Accurate determination of the coupling between antennas over a broad frequency range
  • Evaluation of the impact of non-linear electronic effects

This white paper describes how to analyze co-site interference on large multi-antenna platforms, modify proposed configurations, and easily eliminate co-site interference problems.
