Specturm Defender™

Spectrum Defender™ is a complete solution for detection, capture, analysis and reproduction of RF signals in today’s congested and hostile electromagnetic spectrum. Four software components form the core of Spectrum Defender: Surveyor, Recorder, Player and Reviewer. These software components are compatible with a wide variety of different instrumentation hardware, with frequency ranges from 20Hz to 14GHz, and analysis/record/reproduction bandwidths of up to 100MHz/channel. Two additional software components, EMSEC Basic and EMSEC Advanced, extend Spectrum Defender’s capabilities to Emission Security (EMSEC) applications.

Cutting-edge system enables engineers to factor real-world signals into the design, test and modeling of complex RF systems

Conventional RF spectrum and vector signal analyzers provide little quantitative insight into an RF signal’s multipath impairments. Spectrum Defender enables engineers to capture (record) hours of these highly volatile real-world RF signals for playback and analysis in a controlled environment. Working with real-world performance data enables engineers to analyze signal variations and account for bandwidth and frequency issues in specific applications, enhancing the performance and reliability of the end product. Spectrum Defender eliminates the need for expensive, complex custom equipment configurations. Whether you need repeatable off-air test patterns and recordings, real-world RF signals for stress testing, a cost-effective alternative to field testing, accurate RF models or SIGINT platforms, Spectrum Defender is the clear choice.

Introducing the 8-channel Spectrum Defender Phase coherent Playback unit.

This system may be used in applications requiring multi-channel RF generation of signals from either a recorded or fabricated source to be induced into a system for test, threat injection, or any application that desires comprehensive emulation capability within an overall complex system.  To test these receivers, signal generation must handle extended bandwidths, extended test lengths, and most importantly, channel phase locking. In addition, multiple units can be synchronized together to expand the number of channels from 8 to 16, 32 and beyond.
