  • IAI Unveils Stealth-Tracking UHF Radar

    The new ULTRA family of AESA UHF radars represents a formidable capability of early warning and long-range search and tracking of low observable (stealth) aircraft, Air Breathing Targets (ABTs), and ballistic missiles. The radars offer an advantage of low RCS targets detection at long ranges, operation under all weather conditions, and in the presence of dense electromagnetic environments.

    Radar Waveforms for A&D and Automotive Radar

    This White Paper provides a more detailed view on radar waveforms for Aerospace and Defense and commercial radar systems. Waveforms such as pulse and pulse-Doppler signal, continuous wave and frequency shift keying waveforms are described.

  • Doppler Generation For Moving Target Testing

    Channel Environment Replicator (CER) applications simulate and recreate outdoor environments in which radar systems must operate. It’s a much less expensive testing method when compared to the potential complications encountered in more traditional field testing, though testing a moving target in such an application isn’t all that simple.

  • Radar And Radio Range Simulation Using FODL

    FODL (fiber optic delay line) systems eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming outdoor range tests for radio and radar systems. This white paper outlines how FODL systems’ accuracy, repeatability, and reliability can save money and time when conducting these tests and also explains for delay line core technology works.
