Abstract:

Complexity of modern phased array radars requires that new high speed methods of microwave component test and evaluation be devised such that, not only is the specific device under test evaluated as to quality and accuracy, but also in terms of system errors, the total of all devices is evaluated in an appropriate statistical method to assure final use compatibility. This report summarizes the effort at Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C. To devise such a computer controlled laboratory test and evaluation facility capable to measuring not only CW devices, such as receivers, but also pulse devices such as transmitters. More specifically, the program as devised to implement an all solid state L-band transceiver module evaluation is described. Samples of computer programs and special test equipment schematics are included along with samples of data printout. Author
