    Assignment
      
    Thin client hardware
     
     
    Tacticos is a large and complex software-intensive system, and has been under continuous development for approximately 20 years. During that time, several evolutions of hardware and software infrastucture have been updated, while preserving the original application source code. The current generation of Tacticos applies a distributed thick client architecture.
    In the IT and consumer world, there is increasing interest in the use of thin client technologies, combined with virtualisation techniques, such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), remote rendering, VGX etc etc.
    Thales is interested in evaluating the use of thin client technologies in the Tacticos product. In the assignment, the evaluation of available technologies is required, based on Tacticos requirements, followed by building a prototype showing the integration of thin client hardware technology in Tacticos architecture.

    Secure hypervisors
     
    In the area of virtualization, many hypervisors exist in the commercial area (e.g. Hyper-V, XenServer, Vmware ESXi) and in open-source area (Xen, KVM).For these hypervisors, extensions are being developed which allow secure separation of virtual machines. Separately, specialized hypervisors are being developed (e.g. Sysgo PikeOS and Lynuxworks LynxSecure) which are called separation kernels, which have been built from the ground up to provide security separation.
    Thales is interested in investigating the current state of those fast-moving technologies, and evaluating whether they are applicable to the current Tacticos product and its future generation. The assignment will include development of one or more prototypes to support the evaluation.

    Within the Technical Unit RF radar front-ends are developed. This includes antennas, transmitters, signal generators and receivers. Besides product development, innovative technology studies are carried out in this field.
    Modeling and simulation are an important part of modern RF/microwave design methods. The probability of a first-time-right design is an aspect that receives continuous attention, because of the money that can be saved by avoiding unnecessary design iterations. As part of continuing innovation and process improvement, significant investments are made in tooling and model libraries.
     
    Assignment
     
    RF design based on model library 
     
    In this assignment a newly acquired model library shall be evaluated. The focus of this assignment is on passive components, such as resistors, capacitors, inductors and transformers, which do not behave in an ideal way at microwave frequencies. The quality of the model library depends on how the non-ideal behavior is included in the models, and determines the reliability of the simulations.
    As part of the assignment several passive circuits will be designed and simulated using the new model library.
    Also, the designs will be converted into printed circuit board layout, adding parasitic effects of the layout to the simulation. The final design will be fabricated and tested to assess the similarity between simulation and reality.
     
    Foreseen activities are:
    - Selection of suitable passive test circuits;
    - Design of circuits for frequencies around 5 GHz;
    - Verification of the circuits;
    - Writing a report on the activities, design procedure and results.

    Within the Technical Unit RF radar front-ends are developed. This includes antennas, transmitters, signal generators and receivers. Besides product development, innovative technology studies are carried out in this field.
    Linearized amplifiers are frequently used in base station applications. These amplifiers have a linear region below their compression point in which they maintain their efficiency, which is advantageous in communication applications using complex modulations. This category of amplifiers may also provide advantages when used in radar transmitters. 
     
    Assignment
     
    Linearized power amplifier techniques for radar transmitters
     
    In this assignment the possible application of linearized amplifiers in radar transmitters will be investigated. The radar waveforms are different from the communication signals, with different modulations, and the consequences of these differences have to be investigated to assess the possible advantages of linearized amplifiers for radar applications. An amplifier design shall be prototyped as a proof of concept.
     
    Foreseen activities are:
    - Literature search on commonly used linearized amplifiers;
    - Compare various concepts for feasibility and capabilities in a radar application;
    - Design of a prototype;
    - Verification of the design;
    - Report the activities, design procedure and results in a detailed report.

    Within the Technical Unit state-of-the-art RF radar front-ends are developed, comprising of antennas, transmitters, signal generators and receivers. Modern radar systems are based on phased array antennas, which are basically a collection of radiating elements that can transmit and receive signals by controlling the phase and amplitude of the transmit and receive signals. This enables fast electronic beamsteering and flexibility in the realized antenna pattern shapes. Applicable scanning angles go easily over 45deg in all directions.
     
    Assignment
     
    Array Scan Matching Techniques 
     
    To scan the array to large angles requires to consider the antenna impedance in the presence of other array elements. Array antenna elements influence each other through the antenna near-fields. The effect of the mutual coupling is that the antenna input reflection coefficient varies significantly with the applied scan angle.
    As a result scan matching techniques need to be applied in order to limit the reflection coefficient to acceptable proportions.

    Scan matching can be achieved using various methods. Intrinsic coupling reduction aims to reduce the coupling by influencing the direct near-fields from one element to another. Coupling cancellation method work by creating an additional reflection that interferes with the coupled signal. The reflection can either be on the outside or on the inside of the radiator.

    The objective in this assignment is to investigate scan matching techniques, with emphasis on cancellation methods.

    Activities include :
    - Literature overview of coupling reduction methods
    - Investigation of coupling reduction methods
    - Feasability study on an array antenna including a selected matching method
    - Reporting
