Abstract:

The direction-sensitive doppler radar, a system concept originated in HDL, requires the introduction of a 90-deg phase displacement between two doppler signals. This had restricted the receiver bandwidth to about 3 octaves because of the interchannel amplitude discrepancy caused by available phase shifters. A new quadrature phase shifter with a constant output over a large frequency range has been developed. The performance of an experimental receiver incorporating this new phase shifter is described. It has a 7-octave bandwidth. Author
