Abstract : A study of the feasibility of generating microwave signals from solid state sources, and the analysis and design of varactor multipliers were undertaken as the first phase in the possible development of a solid state radar altimeter. The results showed that a solid state microwave generator is possible, and a completely solid state radar altimeter is feasible. (Author)
