a) Band pass filter: In the receiver side filter is being used of 3.2 db S/N. Its gain is 8.1.
b) Limiter: A very low power loss is being employed and its gain is as high as high 12 and S/N of 14.1dB.
c) LNA: Amplifiers employed are low noise amplifier for reducing waveform attenuation with again high gain. Their dB loss is max of 2.4dB
d) Low-noise amplifiers (BB-AMP, AMP)
e) Radar modulators
Modulators act to provide the short pulses of power to the magnetron, a special type of vacuum tube that converts DC (usually pulsed) into microwaves. This technology is known as Pulsed power. In this way, the transmitted pulse of RF radiation is kept to a defined and usually, very short duration. Modulators consist of a high voltage pulse generator formed from an HV supply, a pulse forming network and a high voltage switch such as a thyratron. A klystron tube may also be used as a modulator because it is an amplifier, so it can be modulated by its low power input signal.
