Abstract

The potential application of radio-frequency (RF) technology for military and homeland security applications in the US are discussed. The US government is relying on RF technology for military and homeland security applications in the country, as it will continue to provide the armed forces with better capabilities and opportunities for new applications. The RF technology will be used for conducting continuous surveillance and object identification activities for the armed forces and homeland security of the country. RF technology is being increasingly used in military and homeland security applications, as it plays a significant role in the development of more cost-effective and faster electronics components that support higher frequencies and wider frequency bandwidths. Raytheon is one of the companies that is focused on developing RF technologies and subsystems that improve the performance and capabilities of existing and future systems.
