Capture Cutting-Edge Radar Simulation And Testing: Introducing The Pulse Sequencer Software

Radar systems follow the same trend as radiocommunications systems and are becoming increasingly defined. This enables radar systems to become multifunctional with many complex waveforms, often together with frequency agility techniques. This white paper presents the R&S®Pulse Sequencer software together with a vector signal generator from Rohde & Schwarz as a compelling radar signal generation solution. It provides an answer to the general trend to implement more test sessions in the lab than in expensive field tests.

  • Electronic Warfare, Drone Wars!

    Conflict is inevitable, and as a result, military force is required if a peaceful solution is unattainable. One of the numerous outcomes of this course of action has been the evolution of battle strategy and weaponry, for the sole purpose of either efficiently defeating the enemy or defending against their attack. This article addresses the use of drones as a protective countermeasure in the future of military applications.

  • Are You Space Qualified?

    It would seem that the desire to explore our boundaries is built into our DNA, and as a result, has driven us into every corner of the globe with few territories untouched.  Considering this expansion, it is only reasonable we would extend this reach into the cosmos.  This reach has led to an explosion in space related applications, such as satellite communications, lunar travel, deep space satellite exploration, space stations, weather tracking, global mapping, and global positioning technology. Is your company positioned for space exploration?

  • Understanding edgeBoost™, bandBoost™ and coexBoost™ – Three Types Of Wi-Fi Filters

    While it may generally be thought that “a filter is a filter,” there are actually many different filters that solve different problems for different types of use cases, and with different benefits. In general, of course, the purpose is to improve the quality of data communications. However, before making any decisions about including filters in your design, it might be good to understand what specific effect is desired. This paper addresses what types of filters are used and for what purposes.
