I am extremely impressed by the performance of the radar unit.
was so impressed that I even called the head of the centre
to come and look at the results of some of the tests that
I had done, because I don’t think I have ever worked with
a millimetre wave radar unit that produced such clean output
I have included a couple of pictures showing the radar being
The “scope data 1V sweep old antenna j” shows the ramp signal
(AC coupled) in yellow, the IF in blue and the spectrum in
red. Note that two strong well separated peaks are visible
at a beat frequency of 68 and 74kHz
These returns are from the two corner reflectors shown in
“test reflector pair j” which are spaced about 1.2m apart.
done guys. I think you can be proud of your hardware.

Thank you for the ELVA newsletter… I keep running into
your equipment at labs all over the world, so I guess business
must be going well. Thanks for the excellent service and quality

very pleased with the support received from Gilland and ELVA-1.
Many thanks to you and Philip (and the rest of the staff)
for your support on this project.

was quite pleased with ELVA-1’s 115 GHz cavity-stabilized
oscillator, the CIDO-8. It delivered more power than we had
expected (>10-15 mW), and was an excellent price value. I was
particularly pleased with the manner in which John Stover at
Gilland Electronics managed the import process.

Your visit to
our laboratory was important. We are operating the machine in various
regimes and everything seems to me working very well.

are extremely happy with the products and service which we have
received from ELVA-1. When we had a component failure en route
to the volcano in the Caribbean, ELVA-1 pulled out all the stops
to send us a replacement, enabling us to conclude a successful
field trip. In 2005 we will be undertaking further field
campaigns to gather more data using AVTIS”
