X-COM's IQC5000A Series: The new standard in long-duration RF spectrum recording, storage, and playback

X-COM’s IQC5000A Series: The new standard in long-duration RF spectrum recording, storage, and playback

X-COM’s revolutionary IQC5000A records, stores, and plays back two independent 160-MHz-wide channels of signal activity captured at any frequency with high fidelity. All this included in an enclosure measuring 12 x 3.5 x 10.5 inches and weighing 10 lb. that operates from commercial power in the lab or a 12 V car battery in the field. So whether your job is ELINT, SIGINT, EW, spectrum management, or wireless or radar system testing, the IQC5000A is an indispensable companion. Learn more.

Proper Use Of Field Analyzers At Lower Frequencies
By AR
Field analyzers typically measure a wide bandwidth and have a very fast sample rate and analog response time. This allows them to be used for fast pulsed field measurements. Their ability to reproduce the envelope of a pulsed electric field in an oscilloscope-like display sets them apart from conventional field probes. This article provides some background information on the development of field analyzers and how they meet a growing need in system test.

Spotlight On Electronic Warfare

High-Power Amplifiers For EW Applications
High-power amplifiers by API Technologies are ideal for a wide variety of applications and solutions. These include broadband jamming, satellite links, test equipment, military communications, electronic warfare, digital control, PA modules with integrated PSU, pulsed radar, and transmitters.


RF Jammers From 8 MHz To 1 GHz
AR Modular RF now offers an entire family of extremely compact, highly efficient, tough, durable RF jammers for electronic warfare and general communications applications.


RF Cosite Modeling Software For EW Applications
Delcross Technologies’ EMIT software is used to predict EMI (electromagnetic interference) in complex RF environments. Download the datasheet for information on its features and specifications.


Test And Measurement Solutions For Aerospace And Defense
Surveillance, identification, targeting, control, intelligence gathering, and self-protection systems are becoming ever more complex and integrated. With the rapid advances across the entire spectrum of radar and electronic warfare technology, the capabilities of test and measurement systems must be continuously enhanced.


Case Study: Design Optimization With XFdtd EM Simulation Software Using GPU Acceleration And Particle Swarm Optimization
Devices designed for free space operation often fail to meet expectations when deployed in their actual environment. This study considers the example of designing a broadband antenna for an unattended ground sensor using Remcom's XFdtd Release 7 (XF7).


Aerospace And Defense Solutions
Whether your project includes radar, radio communications such as land mobile radio, software defined radio (joint tactical radio system (JRTS) and others), global positioning system (GPS) receivers, electronic countermeasures equipment including surveillance receivers or jammers, avionics systems, instrumentation, or microwave subsystems, Skyworks has the RF products you need to speed your design from concept to production.

Modeling The Installed Performance Of A SATCOM Antenna On A UAV
Modeling The Installed Performance Of A SATCOM Antenna On A UAV
The installed performance of an 8-GHz SATCOM reflector antenna on a UAV platform is modeled using Delcross Savant. Full 3D, far-field radiation patterns are computed and animated as the gimbaled antenna assembly is rotated through 360 degrees under a radome inside the forward UAV sensor compartment. Savant provides efficient high frequency EM simulation of installed antennas using an asymptotic shooting and bouncing rays (SBR) technique.
