Research Topics


A unique and novel concept to quickly determine defects on phased array radar antenna systems is proposed. The concept is based on the hybridization of IR imaging techniques and the utilization of a miniature optical probe. The concept is independent of frequency, can handle full power and will provide the government with laboratory type measurement accuracies. The measurement concept is highly portable, lightweight (
