Radar Test and Electronic Warfare

Performance precision and insight for your radar test and electronic warfare design.

SAPL EW Collage

With the proliferation of technology, it seems that anyone can create a threat simply by copying design information from the web. Thus, designing effective electronic countermeasures for radar and electronic warfare threats is a much more difficult and demanding task. The constantly changing threat environment presents an ever increasing challenge to your systems. They must be agile, flexible and able to adjust to the constantly changing threats.

Our innovative test solutions allow you to see aspects of your signals that were previously invisible, giving you the insight to increase the capabilities of your systems, shorten your design cycle and meet the challenges that you face.

  • Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers:
    • Validate your transmitter design with speed and confidence with the unique features of the RSA series Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers, including DPXTM live RF display and the advanced pulse measurement suite.
  • Arbitrary Waveform Generators:
    • With the highest speed AWG's available, you can generate unique signals for your application. Through RFXpress® and our RF environment simulator package we give you the tools that you need to quickly develop and test the complex RF environment that you need to validate your design.

Fundamentals of Radar Measurements

This primer addresses the needs for pulse generation and measurements, the automated measurements that are available, explanation of just how the automated measurements are made, and how pulses are generated.

Advanced Radar Analysis: Tools for Measuring Modern Radar Application Note

With today’s rapid advances in radar technology, developing and manufacturing highly specialized and innovative electronic products to detect radar signals takes leading-edge technology and tools. Tektronix innovative test equipment reduces testinguncertainty during the design process and delivers confidence in the integrity of increasingly complex designs. Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generators, Real-time Spectrum Analyzers and High-Bandwidth Oscilloscopes offer the capabilities you need to manage the requirements of modern radar applications.

Generating Advanced Radar Signals Using Arbitrary Waveform Generators

Advances in radar signal generation and processing are being driven by the need to improve resolution and reduce radar spectrum occupancy. Solving these challenges demands exceptional performance from an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) in terms of sample rate, analog bandwidth, and memory.

Improving IED Countermeasure Technology - Using RF Capture and Playback Systems

By combining the Tektronix spectrum analyzer and X-COM Systems long duration RF signal storage system, a unique tool results for the recording, analyzing, and creating of new waveforms and complex RF environments to help tackle IED countermeasure technologies.

Amplitude Correction for Impulse Response Measurement of Radar Pulses

This technical paper discusses the implementation of amplitude correct and the elimination of amplitude errors in the (IPR) impulse response measurement. This measurement can be performed using a signal analyzer on the RF output of a radar while using the radar’s own chirp as the internal measurement reference.

Impulse Response as a Measurement of the Quality of Chirp Radar Pulses

Impulse response, or time-sidelobe, is qualitative indicator of a chirp radar performance. This technical paper introduces and describes the implementation on the Tektronix Spectrum Analyzer and SignalVu software applications.

Calibrate+ Characterize and Emulate systems using RFXpress® in AWG Series

System designers and device manufacturers so long have been using one set of instruments for creating digitally modulated RF signals for testing their device, and another set of instruments to characterize their system. With high bandwidth and high sampling rate Tektronix AWG7122B along with RFXpress® software, test signals and device characterization can now be done with one set of general purpose instruments up to 9.6 GHz.

Making Modern Radar Measurements the Easy Way

At one time, radar measurements could be performed using an oscilloscope for time domain, and a spectrum analyzer for frequency domain parameters. As radars became more and more complex, the measurements also became more complex. To perform today's measurements the easy way, test instrumentation needs to include automatic measurement techniques that are focused on today's radars.

Fundamentals of Radar Measurements Webinar

This seminar focuses on the Automatic Measurement - theory of operation - using Tektronix signal analysis and generation tools. This presentation starts with an overview of common tools used for the testing of radars and important measurement parameters impacting measurement results. It then focuses on the Theory of Operation for the Automatic Pulse Measurements that are available on the latest Tektronix Oscilloscopes and Spectrum Analyzer products. In conclusion it discusses the challenges and solutions for Signal Generation.

Fast, Low Level Spurious Search with Tektronix Real Time Signal Analyzers

Historically, long test times have been required to perform low-level spur searches on high-performance RF and microwave transmitters.  In this webinar, learn how the unique wideband architecture of the Tektronix Real Time Signal Analyzers provides a breakthrough approach for this critical test, resulting in faster time to results and a significantly reduced test budget.
