Northrop Grumman Electronics Systems

ADS delivered an 8-channel arbitrary waveform generator to NGES based upon the ADS Spectrum Defender platform. With phase synchronous long duration data streams, the system emulates antennas to enhance subsystem testing by direct injection of RF and IF to the processor signal. The RF or IF environments, created by the Spectrum Defender waveform generator provide the downlink for data processing subsystems. This down link is extremely versatile with the ability to emulate environments requiring less than eight channels or may be cascaded with additional units to expand to 16, 32 and 64+ channels.

Quality Assessment and Ability to Obtain Feedback:

Performance Documentation and Reporting:

Monthly Progress, Status and Management Reports will detail program performance status – whether from a cost, schedule or technical perspective – and provide trend and variance analyses. Our PM will meet monthly, or as required, with Task Order CORs and the TO Leads will meet monthly with each government TO PM upon delivery of the monthly reports, with a goal of monitoring and receiving feedback on quality, cost control and schedule. The ADS Team also will document and report on program performance in the TO management reviews, IPTs, and formal SE reviews. The ADS PM and TO Leads continually inform program team members of the challenges and critical success factors of the program through regular quarterly discussions at the PMB and regularly scheduled training.
