Modem pulsed phased array radar systems bring new challenges to antenna measurement. These antennas generally consist of hundreds of Transmit-Receive (TR) modules controlled via a beam steering computer to fonn the antenna beam. Attempting to operate these modules with a CW wavefonn will not only quickly damage the modules but will not properly characterize the antenna. The Navel Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, recognized the need to add pulsed capability when specifying their latest antenna measurement system. Scientific Atlanta met these requirements by integrating their newly introduced Model 1795P Pulsed Microwave Receiver into their proven 2095 Microwave Measurement System to make the Model 2095P Pulsed Microwave Measurement System.
