Abstract:

Applications for millimeter waves are discussed, and it is shown how propagation effects enter into systems considerations for the EHF region. The state of the millimeter-wave art is reviewed as to antennas, sources, amplifiers, and receivers. Highlighted are two applications, a high-resolution radar, which it is hoped can utilize the inherent advantage of the short millimeter wavelengths for resolution, and a space-to-space communication system at EHF.
