R&S®SMW-K308 Direction Finding

Key facts

  • Direction finding with a single emitter
  • Up to 10 individual antenna elements
  • Predefined antenna patterns or user-defined antenna patterns

Brief description

The R&S®Pulse Sequencer software together with R&S®SMW-K308 option enhances the capabilities of R&S®SMW-K300 and R&S®SMW-K301 options. The R&S®SMW-K308 options allows the user to simulate the angle of arrival (AoA) of a radar transmitter.

Key facts

  • Direction finding with a single emitter
  • Up to 10 individual antenna elements
  • Predefined antenna patterns or user-defined antenna patterns
  • Consideration of attitude information of receiver and emitter
  • Consideration of co- and cross-polarization
  • ARB-based signal generation

Brief description

The R&S®Pulse Sequencer software together with R&S®SMW-K308 option enhances the capabilities of R&S®SMW-K300 and R&S®SMW-K301 options. The R&S®SMW-K308 options allows the user to simulate the angle of arrival (AoA) of a radar transmitter.

This option provides a receiver as a new simulation component. The receiver can store individual antenna patterns for each channel. Each antenna can be assigned a position, an antenna pattern and a pointing direction. The ensemble of all individual antennas is an antenna system.

On the 2D map, the antenna system itself can be assigned attitude and height information. In combination with an emitter placed on the 2D map, the R&S®Pulse Sequencer software automatically calculates the individual power levels at the output of each individual receiver antenna taking into consideration free space propagation and the attitude information.
