Fundamentals of Radar Measurements

This primer addresses the needs for pulse generation and measurements, the automated measurements that are available, and explains how the automated measurements are made as well as how pulses are generated.

Detecting Drones Using a Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer

Flying drones can be fun. For RC and photography enthusiasts, a drone is a source of entertainment, and with a camera attached, provides breathtaking birds-eye views. For commercial and first responder purposes, a drone can be a valuable asset for information and increase productivity. However, when a drone is operating where it shouldn’t, the potential ramifications can be catastrophic and costly. For these situations, organizations need real-time, accurate, simple to operate and cost-effective solutions for detecting drones flying in or near restricted airspace. In this application note, we’ll discuss the basics for detecting a drone with a Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer and how networking multiple Spectrum Analyzers together can create an automated drone detection system with 24/7 monitoring capabilities. 

Emission Control, Radiation Hazards, and the Value of Intelligent RF Sensing for These Applications

In this whitepaper, we will discuss electromagnetic radiation, EMCON and the three forms of RADHAZ. We’ll conclude with a discussion of how incorporating a USB Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer, such as Tektronix’ RSA500 series, can assist in identifying EMCON violations and mitigating RADHAZ risks.

Understanding Radar Signals Using Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers

This Primer will cover measurements methods, choosing your measurement parameters, how to find the pulse, estimating the carrier frequency and phase, timing measurements, frequency and phase measurements and chirp measurements.

Conquering Wideband Radar

Are you trying to build high fidelity wideband signal environments? Are you struggling to pick up on notoriously difficult to detect wideband signals? This webinar will focus on the challenges related to the adoption of wideband radar and techniques to master them. This hour long webinar features Tektronix expert Bill Byrom, who will share his insights on the key factor to consider when simulating and analyzing wideband signals.

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.
