TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,610,069, “Coaxial to Dual Co-Planar Waveguide Launcher for Microwave Bolometry,” This patent describes a new way to construct bolometers—a type of microwave power sensor that uses thermistors—that makes them more accurate and easier to assembly.
Mercury Systems Inc., a best-of-breed provider of commercially developed, open sensor and Big Data processing systems for critical commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced it received an $11 million follow-on order from a leading defense prime contractor for high performance microwave subsystems for an electronic warfare application. The orders were received in Mercury’s fiscal 2014 second quarter, with deliveries currently expected to span 2015 through 2018.
Cassidian has developed a flexible airborne ground surveillance radar, which can be deployed on a variety of manned and unmanned platforms for the detection of ground and sea targets.
A unique feature of the tried and tested R&S NRP power sensors is their ability to work independently of a specific base unit. The sensors can be connected directly to a PC or laptop via USB. Rohde & Schwarz has now implemented this feature for compact smartphones and tablet PCs as well.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a wireless vibration sensing system that allows industrial systems operators to remotely monitor production equipment health, improve system performance, and reduce maintenance costs. The new networked system includes the ADIS16229 iSensor(R) wireless vibration sensor node, which combines dual-axis digital MEMs (micro-electro mechanical systems) acceleration sensing with advanced frequency-domain and time-domain signal processing.
L-3 WESCAM unveiled its new land vehicle surveillance system, the MX™-LVSS, at CANSEC, Canada’s largest defence and security trade show, in the outside display area, booth 2019. Based on L-3 WESCAM’s industry-leading MXSeries of multi-spectral, highly stabilized imaging systems, the MX-LVSS is a modular and rugged solution consisting of low-risk, battle-proven, commercial-off-the-shelf subsystemscurrently operating in the world’s harshest terrains and climates.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI), leading the industry with the most complete wireless connectivity portfolio for embedded applications, announced the extension of its remote control solutions offering with a new Bluetooth® low energy advanced remote control kit. As a technology, Bluetooth low energy allows for remotes with mouse-like pointing and keyboard functionality as well as gesture-, touch- and motion-based input controls so users can take their viewing and gaming experience to the next level.
CRFS has been named as the winner of a 2013 Queen's Award for Enterprise, International Trade. The award recognizes the success of the company's international strategy in establishing itself as a major exporter of spectrum monitoring and surveillance technology.
RF Monolithics Inc. (a subsidiary of Murata Electronics North America Inc.) (“RFM” or “the company”), a provider of solutions-driven, technology-enabled RF technologies for machine-to-machine (M2M) and wireless communications, introduced the next generation of its wireless sensor networking platform products -- the SN-4 series of battery-powered wireless sensor nodes. The SN-4 provides 4 channels of sensor inputs and transmits the data back to access points, Ethernet, or Cellular gateways.
Fast, precise, highly linear – users working with a frequency range over 67 GHz now also benefit from the unique features of the thermal power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz. The new R&S NRP-Z58 is the world's first power sensor that covers the frequency range continuously from DC to 110 GHz.
