Abstract: The national microwave power standards consist of two parts: a microcalorimeter and a bolometer mount used as the transfer standard. In the past, operation of the microcalorimeter has been slow and complicated, and required skilled personnel. This paper details the automation of the 0.1 to 18 GHz coaxial microcalorimeter and the design of a new coaxial transfer standard.
