TPS-75 Transmitter Control Unit
TPS-75 Transmitter Control Unit

HED designed, built, and tested a custom Transmitter Control Unit to monitor and control the transmitter subsystems for the AN/TPS-75 Solid State Modulator Transmitter Upgrade.


The TCU is built into the door of the transmitter compartment and performs real-time analyses for each radar pulse, digitizing and analyzing the waveforms for critical signals in the transmitter, and inhibiting operation of the radar in the event of a fault. A microprocessor-based manual control panel provides back-up control in the event of the failure of the computer touch-screen. The project involved the design of custom CCAs, control firmware, and a graphical user interface on a Linux platform, as well as the mechanical design of the door assembly.
