Abstract : This paper will describe the development of a prototype SAW resonator controlled 740 MHz precision local oscillator for satellite applications. The oscillator is housed in a 2.4 cubic inch package. It uses discreet components and a miniature component oven for temperature compensation and enhancement of short term stability. Considerations in the design and fabrication of resonators for this application will be discussed as well as those of the oscillator.
