Eastern OptX, specialists in fiber optic delay lines for RF and microwave test applications, introduced its new Series 5000 Doppler radar target generators. The company will be showing the systems at IMS 2013 for the first time.
The Series 5000 features moving target generators covering radar frequencies from 1 to 18 GHz. The Series 5000 instruments are compact systems that provide Doppler radar target generation with speeds from 0 to 3000 MPH, allowing users to set target and radar source speeds and directions.
Series 5000 systems may be operated remotely using wireless control with scenario generator features including flight path replication, moving source and targets, and multiple target options.
Data may be entered in multiple formats. Formats include: target and radar speed and direction; start-stop LONG-LAT; lateral path (angle of opening and angle of closing) and speeds; or pre-programmed Google Map placements.
Customers can also create a complete moving target replication by integrating delay lines. All Series 5000 Doppler radar generators may be used with Eastern OptX Series 3000 delay lines to create both Doppler and step-wise target and source movements.
The Series 5000 is available in 1U for 19” racks in bands from 1 to 18 GHz with external modulation input and external trigger input (synchronous mode). The instrument is controlled by USB or WiFi using optional Microsoft Surface™ with control software.
Software for Doppler input includes speed, frequency, Google Maps, approaching/retreating targets, target speed and direction, and radar source speed and direction. Other important features of the Series 5000 software settings include:
