TECHNICAL ABSTRACT ( Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
During Phase I, TLC will demonstrate and deliver a remote mixed-mode adjustable X-band to W-band transceiver chip that can perform well as a FMCW, super-heterodyne or pulse radar that meets space qualification specifications. This reconfigurable transceiver will serve as the basis for the precipitation & cloud measurement doppler radar system that will be developed, tested and delivered to NASA in Phase II.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS ( Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Small, low cost, efficient and reliable detector and data transfer systems for domestic & space applications. Precise weather forcasting for timely public response.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS ( Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Dual tracking and communication transceiver in one chip. Collision avoidance, wireless communication, security radar, military radar, UAV transceiver.

NASA's technology taxonomy has been developed by the SBIR-STTR program to disseminate awareness of proposed and awarded R/R&D in the agency. It is a listing of over 100 technologies, sorted into broad categories, of interest to NASA.
