dc.description.abstractThis document summarizes the design, fabrication, and testing of an S-band receiver single node for a multistatic radar network application. The proposed receiver design established the need of low cost, low power, easy to replicate and deploy system, to be operated by the United States Air Force. This work has been completed by modifying a previous prototype receiver built under the same USAF grant at Colorado State University with UPRM collaboration. The modifications consist in the replacements of the most expensive components including the antenna, the data acquisition system, the synchronization system, the containing box and adjustments to the operating frequency bandwidth. Presented as part of the design are tests to individual components, sub-systems and to the complete receiver as a system. With the modifications made to the existing receiver the cost has been reduced approximately by a factor of 4. In addition, a solar energy option was implemented for the modified design.en_US
dc.description.abstractEn este documento se resume el trabajo hecho para crear un recibidor de radar como nodo de una red de recibidores que formaran un sistema de radar multiestatico para la Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos. El recibidor propuesto responde a la necesidad de un sistema de bajo costo, bajo consumo de potencia y fácil de duplicar e instalar para ser operado por la Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos. Esto se logró modificando un recibidor ya creado y entregado hecho en la Universidad del Estado de Colorado en colaboración con la Universidad de Puerto Rico recinto de Mayagüez. Las modificaciones hechas son básicamente el remplazo o modificación de los componentes o sub- sistemas más caros, como la antena, el sistema de adquisición de datos, el sistema de sincronización, la caja que contiene el sistema y la modificación del ancho de banda del sistema. Con las modificaciones hechas al sistema se logró reducir aproximadamente 4 veces el costo del recibidor original. Un sistema de potencia solar se ha implementado en este diseño modificado.en_US
