A MECHANICAL DUPLEXER FOR HIGH-POWERED X-BAND RADARS

Pagination or Media Count:
The combination of high power and the use of a low-noise maser receiving system places severe requirements on modern radar duplexing systems. Typical values of isolation of -120 db and insertion loss of less than -0.2 db are required to prevent deterioration of the maser gain and low-noise capabilities. The only presently AVAILABLE SYSTEM THAT CAN APPROACH THE NEEDED PERFORMANCE IS THE MECHANICAL DUPLEXER. A duplexer unit is discussed which was developed for the West Ford radar system.
