Abstract : A detailed design of the receiver portion of a flight test model Interferometric Landmark Tracker (ILT) was completed. Prototype RF subassemblies and breadboard circuits were built and tested. Test results indicate the flight test model ILT receiver will provide an accuracy of 0.57 phase one sigma over the frequency range of 2.5 to 2.9 GHz, the specified temperature range of 30 F to +160 F and the received signal dynamic range of 50 dB.
