Abstract

SRI International has been developing an Advanced Modular Incoherent Scatter Radar (AMISR) for the purpose of observing upper-atmospheric phenomena with an easily deployable modular radar system. This project was mostly concerned with the power amplifier in the AMISR, specifically a Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA). Ourproject was to design and build an automated test station for use during production testing and design verification testing as well as design circuitry that will be used during a twenty-four hour burn-in test.
