Abstract:

Texas Instruments, under contract to Naval Surface Weapons Center NSWC, has delivered the first proof of concept, prototype X and Ka band Mirror Scanning Antenna to the Navy. This antenna is a candidate for the Navys new generation of ship self defense weapon systems and culminates over two years of work by Texas Instruments Antenna Department. Several unique operational features are offered by the Mirror Scanning Antenna. These features include full hemispherical scan coverage, simultaneous X and Ka band dual plane monopulse tracking, rapid scan rates, variable scan modes, high Ka band power handling ability, and an integral weather tight protective radome.
