With the rapid development of mm-wave (30 - 300 GHz) communications standards, and the availability of off-the-shelf components to enable these developments, the future EW and SIGINT practitioner will be called on to develop high quality receivers to match. Although Maxwell's equations may hold from DC to daylight, the same cannot be said for the design tools and techniques; similarly, there are some significant differences (and important similarities!) when moving system design from the microwave (3 - 30 GHz) to the mm-wave spectrum.
This talk presents a broad overview of these similarities and dissimilarities, starting with atmospheric propagation characteristics and an overview of the current systems operating in the band. The talk will then look in detail at components, materials, and packaging technology, as well as pointing out some issues in design and simulation. Finally, the presentation concludes with some notes on guided media and interconnects, as well as a discussion of equipment and measurement techniques.
