As Defense budgets around the world have been squeezed and with few new platforms in production, A&D companies are looking to upgrade current equipment as a major market opportunity. These upgrades are friendly to military budgets as they provide improved capabilities at much lower costs than new platforms. They also provide new capabilities much faster than developing new platforms that take years to design and produce.
X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies, introduced version 3.0 of its RF Editor Graphical RF Editor software, the industry's most advanced tool for modifying and building custom RF signal waveform files for use in defense, commercial, and system verification applications. RF Editor Version 3.0 is more intuitive, faster, and adds useful features that expand its capabilities.
The NoiseWave NW-ATE series, an economical and rugged programmable noise generator, now covering from 10 MHz up to 40 GHz, is ideal for military and SATCOM applications including Ka-Band tests such as BER vs. Eb/No, interference, and jamming.
Comtech Xicom Technology Inc., a technology leader of high power amplifier products for satellite communication (SATCOM), announced an expanded 12.75 to 14.5 GHz frequency coverage option for its Ku-Band, traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs).
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it will demonstrate next-generation test and measurement solutions that are enabling electronic warfare including radar, satellite, signal generation and analysis, and in-field RF and microwave at AOC, (Phoenix Convention Center, Booth 225) in Phoenix, Sepember 23-26.
Saab is coordinator of one of the biggest research and development projects within EU’s Seventh Framework Programme: Integrated Mobile Security Kit (IMSK). This project, which started in 2009, and is due to be delivered in 2013, has reached a significant milestone.
Tahoe RF Semiconductor announces that it has licensed the latest GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) technology from Stanford University for the development of their next generation low-power, low-cost universal GNSS IC. The technology employs unique RF subsampling techniques that enable the receiver to support all the GNSS bands and be implemented on a single RF CMOS IC Technology
