RASSRReliable Advanced Solid State Phased Array Radar

RASSR antenna radiation pattern performance was equal to contemporary airborne radar requirements; but it was equipped with low efficiency silicon active devices, multipliers and frequency converters between its X-band in-space signal and S-band amplifiers.
Building on the success of RASSR, beginning in 1983, the solid-state phased-array (SSPA) was the first USAF/TI X-band AESA array to realize the performance efficiency of direct power and receive amplification at X-band using GaAs devices.
By contrast, production rates of hybrid modules for the one-of-a-kind SSPA and RASSR arrays have peaked at 300 modules per month.
