Brief Description

To accomplish out missions successfully, it is essential to carry out training and tests that closely reflect real operational conditions and to know the capabilities of one's own forces.

The R&S®GTA-RN5 radio net simulation device offers the required solution, providing defined and reproducible scenarios and providing defined and reproducible scenarios and boundary conditions for radiomonitoring and radiolocation as well as radiocommunications.

The R&S®GTA-RN5 simulates wave propagation between radios and/or radiomonitoring equipment that are connected to the device. It provides all the required functionality in a single box and does away with complex and costly open-field tests. All test parameters can be edited and stored by means of the control software. This allows the use a variety of reproducible test scenarios.
