A stabilized local oscillator is one of the key components for any radar system, especially for a Doppler radar in detecting slowly moving targets. Based on hybrid semiconductor/superconductor circuitry, the HTS local oscillator produces stable, low noise performance superior to that achieved with conventional technology. The device combines a high Q HTS sapphire cavity resonator (f=5.6 GHz) with a C-band low noise GsAs HEMT amplifier. The phase noise of the oscillator, measured by a HP 3048A noise measurement system, is -134 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset at 77 K.
