Abstract:
This paper presents an interference analysis of an AESA antenna demonstrator for S-band civil maritime navigation radar applications. A qualitative evaluation of the CW interferences effects on the AESA antenna operation has been carried out, in order to design the most suitable receiver protector. In addition, a receiver protector concept is drawn.
