GaN, Open Systems, Low-SWaP Platforms Transform the Military Sector (.PDF Download)

Aug. 29, 2016

To support current aerospace and defense systems, technology has moved beyond traditional constructs and iterations to completely new approaches and solutions. The RF/microwave industry faces the task of providing ever-advancing electronic-warfare (EW) solutions while meeting size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints. A further example of this advanced technology revolves around next-generation radar systems—a number of them are being powered by active electronically scanned arrays (AESAs) based on gallium nitride (GaN), providing capabilities not possible with older systems...
