Design procedures, theory, construction, and test data are given. The receiver is a solid-state, superheterodyne, monopulse receiver. Four channels are required to process signals from two line phased array antennae. Three frequency conversion stages are used to convert C-band signals to bipolar video outputs. Sensitivity time control and automatic gain control are employed to increase reciever dynamic range. Computer-aided design techniques were used to design the stripline-balanced mixer and filter for the receiver front end. Author
