Abstract:

This Technical Report describes some of the transmit instrumentation, that was assembled using relatively inexpensive commercial-off-the-shelf COT components, for use in investigating the performance of frequency diverse array FDA antennas for secure communications. Brief descriptions of the bench-level set-ups used for characterizing the transmit waveform generation instrumentation are provided. Test results are included to give some indication of expected level of performance.
