STAR Performance with SPEAR (Signal Processing Electronic Attack RFIC)
Naval Research Laboratory Washington United States
Pagination or Media Count:
The Signal Processing Electronic Attack RFIC SPEAR is a simultaneous transmit and receive STAR system capable of STAR operation in the presence of 1 kW EIRP power, independently of the choice of transmitter in use. The paper reports on the status of the SPEAR project that started 2 years ago with the support of the Office of Naval Research, Code 31. Preliminary measurements based on a COTS-based receiver prototype will be presented. To the authors knowledge, the measured results from the prototype already demonstrate state-of-the-art STAR performance and provide a solid base for the integration of the complete system.
