Radar

Radar
With few exceptions, today's generation of radars employ a phased array or active electronically steered array (AESA) architecture to improve reliability and accuracy, and to allow tracking of multiple targets. HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of low loss and phase stable microwave cable assemblies to meet the requirements of today's systems. Miniaturisation is a key driver for higher integration and density. Our board-to-board solutions cope with the largest mechanical misalignment and are complemented by our Minibend products. The bend-to-the-end technology enables high integration densities without compromising performance and reliability.

Applications
  • Radars
  • T/R modules
Requirements
  • Low loss, phase stable cable assemblies
  • Small form factor, minimal bend radius (bend-to-the-end) 
Heritage
  • 3DLERR
  • GM radar
