Lockheed Martin recently completed a milestone test on the U.S. Navy’s evolutionary Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 system. This test further validated the system’s ability to protect the Navy’s fleet from evolving anti-ship missile threats.
Northrop Grumman Corp. has finished detailed performance testing on its Advanced Pulse Generator (APG), which represents the next technology evolution for the company's Combat Electromagnetic Environment Simulator (CEESIM) product that is used to test and validate the performance of electronic warfare equipment.
The fifth Lockheed Martin Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite for the U.S. Navy is entering its first system test faster than the previous build, now that integration is complete. Engineers and technicians recently mated its system module and core to the multi-beam assembly (MBA), which hosts 16 ultra-high frequency (UHF) antennas for distributed, global communications coverage.
Vaunix , a manufacturer of USB controlled and powered test equipment, has announced the addition of two new models to its family of LDA series digital attenuators. This product family now offers attenuators with up to 120 dB of programmable attenuation through 6,000 MHz.
Anritsu Co. announces that it has validated 100 percent of the tests required by NTT DoCoMo for the Summer 2014 model mobile phones using the flexible ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform. Achievement of this level of validation uniquely positions the ME7834L as the only test system with the ability to offer complete coverage for DoCoMo requirements, building on Anritsu’s #1 positions for Summer 2013 and Winter 2013 test requirements.
Anritsu Co. announces it has worked with Qualcomm Technologies Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., to successfully demonstrate peak throughput for a Category 6 LTE device and network simulator using 20+20 MHz carrier aggregation (CA). The two companies have jointly performed tests with a device based on the new Qualcomm® Gobi™ 9x35 modem, the world’s first LTE Advanced World Mode Category 6 chipset solution.
