Rohde & Schwarz enables standard test solution for Moog's TACAN beacon rollout
Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) announced that Moog has selected the R&S EDS300 DME/pulse analyzer as a standard test solution for R&D, manufacturing and field deployment of their MM-7000 series navigation aids. The Moog MM-7000 is a technologically advanced full service TACAN and DME Beacon-Transponder that is being widely sold into the civil and military aircraft navigation market.
Precise and reliable navigation and flight approach systems are vital to ensuring international aviation safety. Moog's MM-7000 platform represents the 4th generation DME & TACAN System and is designed to maximize performance and reliability. It features a highly integrated design for fixed base, shipboard, mobile and man-portable applications with a common set of modules.
The R&S EDS300 is a standalone, remote-controlled level and modulation analyzer that can be deployed for the continuous monitoring, recording and analysis of pulsed terrestrial navigation signals. The R&S EDS300 TACAN software includes measurement functions for completely analyzing signals from TACAN stations, making it ideal for commissioning and service tasks. The compact R&S EDS300 is tailor-made for carrying out such tasks, offering extremely high sensitivity and measurement accuracy.
"The R&S EDS300 has the performance and sensitivity we need in the lab and manufacturing environment, plus it offers a robust and compact design for field testing the air interface of the MM-7000," said Achim Soelter, Moog Director of Engineering. "The R&S EDS300 is an integrated test solution that enables Moog to have a standardized test process for verifying the performance of our TACAN and DME products at all stages."
