2019 DEFENCE, SECURITY & SPACE FORUM
The Defence, Security and Space (DSS) Forum is jointly organized by EuMA and Microwave Journal, to complement European Microwave Week’s activity in the defence, security and space sector. Each year the DSS Forum focuses on a hot topic that is engaging industry, academia and organisations/agencies to develop, test and implement leading edge technology. This year’s one-day focused Forum will address New Radio Architectures: The Evolution of Satellite Constellations. A full itinerary can be found in the conference special events section of the EuMW website.
HSM Series RF Synthesizer Modules
The unique, non-PLL-based HSM Series RF Synthesizer Modules offer incredibly agile frequency switching speeds as fast as 6 µS with no settling time.
