Abstract : Evaluation data on an 8-watt and a 16-watt Impatt Amplifier are presented to concisely describe the performance of these amplifiers. The data include component specifications and photographs, test set-up configuration, amplitude and phase characteristics of the input and/or output, and noise data. The amplifier development effort was pursued in the component development phase of the Microwave Landing System (MLS) Program, because solid state sources are considered a part of the critical technology ultimately required for the MLS systems. The units performed satisfactorily and show promise for the implementation of this solid state source technology into future microwave landing systems. (Author)
