The ATR80M6G is a wide band, high gain, log periodic antenna that is uniquely suited for use in both traditional applications as well as in new compact chambers. The proprietary design utilizing a “bent element” approach provides a size reduction of approximately 60% without sacrificing key electrical performance such as gain and beamwidth and minimizes field loss resulting from “room loading”.
The HyCap series capacitors are composed of sintered tantalum anodes and ruthenium oxide coated cathodes operating in aqueous electrolyte. These capacitors are designed to operate reliably in extreme shock and vibration environments and for operation in environments of up to 200°C.
Antenna Magus is a new software tool to help engineers accelerate the antenna design and modelling process. It has a huge database of designed antennas which can be exported to CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® for further analysis and optimization.
Wireless InSite is site-specific radio propagation software for the analysis of wireless communication systems, wireless networks, sensors, radars, and other devices that transmit or receive radio waves

SOSA And VITA: Working Together For Next-Gen Defense Systems
The Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA™) Consortium is developing common open standards for designing, building, and deploying hardware, software, and firmware components of new military electronic systems. Because the emerging SOSA hardware standard draws primarily from OpenVPX and other related VITA standards, the new technologies, topologies, and environmental requirements critical to meeting SOSA objectives must be supported by extensions to these VITA standards. This article is an overview of the SOSA and VITA organizations and how they interact, along with the challenges, successful strategies, and illustrative examples.
The Basics Of Military EMC Testing
Although the onus is not on the EMC test engineers and test laboratories to make the decisions on test levels, limits, and requirements, they are still required to identify test specifications, define test procedures, as well as perform the tests.
Unique mmWave Designs And Customized Products For Satcom, Radar, EW, And ECM Systems
Systems operating in the Ka-band, Q-band, and other high-frequency bands present more significant SWaP-C challenges than systems operating at lower frequencies, demanding more expertise from component designers.
