Rohde & Schwarz provides test and measurement solutions created to meet the most challenging requirements in aerospace and defense. The company’s test instruments offer precise signal and phase noise analysis, clean signal generation and high-resolution time domain verification with unrivaled instrument performance, all of which with a unique approach focusing on the ease of use for engineers and developers.

The latest generations of multifunctional Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA) radar systems have been developed as a response to the rapidly increasing complexity of electromagnetic environments and enhanced electronic warfare (EW) capabilities. This architecture brings new challenges, such as frequency and mode agility, as well as complex waveforms and pulse modulations in an often compact and fully integrated radar system design. Hence, engineers are looking for the right tools to address these challenges, reduce risks, meet challenging time-to-market objectives and simplify the costly and time-consuming development and design process.

Rohde & Schwarz provides a dedicated portfolio for radar and EW testing that focuses on bringing realistic scenarios – usually simulated in extensive field tests – to the lab. With this new approach, engineers and developers are provided with greater insight much earlier in the design and development phase. The R&S Pulse Sequencer software, for instance, used together with signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz, provides an ideal solution for simulating angle of arrival (AoA) in the lab to verify direction finding performance of radar warning receivers. This setup eliminates the need for expensive field tests and is used to create complex simulations with static or moving emitters in a 3D scenario, providing a new level of realism, in any lab.

Furthermore, electronic attack and defense suites widely use digital radio frequency memory (DRFM) jammers in order to deceive hostile radars and protect assets. Rohde & Schwarz offers a specialized product portfolio, including high-end signal and spectrum analyzers as well as best-in-class phase noise testers, designed to address all challenges during the design phase of such smart jammers, but also for system performance validation and production.

All test and measurement solutions from Rohde & Schwarz are designed to meet the industry’s high standards of reliability combined with class-leading performance. For more information on the Rohde & Schwarz portfolio for radar and EW testing, visit Rohde & Schwarz at DSEI 2019 in London, UK, from 10 to 13 September 2019, on stand S1-350, or visit www.rohde-schwarz.com/ad/press/radar-ew.
