Explorer CS1247-G Broadband Signal and Environment Series

  • Overview
  • Features
  • Software

The CS1247-G Broadband Signal and Environment series provides the widest bandwidth and deepest memory RF/baseband signal generator available.  The BSG combines broadband RF upconverters, wide bandwidth high dynamic range DACs and high speed memory with powerful DSP-based signal creation software. Real signals, including recording using Cobham AvComm's Broadband Signal Analyzers or other recorder sources can be imported, combined with digitally generated signals, and then played back on the BSG for ultra-realistic test scenarios.

Applications include:

  • Radar
  • Communications
  • EW/ECM
  • Spectrum monitoring
  • EME

Aeroflex's Vector Signal Player (VSP) software provides simple controls for signal file selection, and output frequency and power control. Aeroflex's up converters use real (non-I/Q) conversion architectures, generating high dynamic range waveforms without the carrier leakage and signal image problems associated with I/Q modulators found in traditional signal sources.  The Vector Signal Simulator (VSS) software provides the unique ability to mix any combination of signals and impairments to generate complex signal environments.

Vector Signal Simulator (VSS) software creates signal files for generic nPSK, nQAM, nFSK, MSK,ASK, OOK, AM, FM, PM, SSB, CW, tone combs, and notched noise signals. Commercial wireless standards are also available. Any of these generic signal types can be gated or bursted in time as well as hopped infrequency with digital precision and easy-to-use controls. Real signals, including signals recorded using Aeroflex's Broadband Signal Analyzers or other recorder sources can be imported, combined with digitally generated signals, and then played back on the BSG for ultra-realistic test scenarios. Impairments can be added to the signals including thermal noise, phase noise, passband amplitude and phase distortion, co-channel and adjacent channel interference, and multi-path distortion. VSS software provides the unique ability to mix any combination of signals and impairments to generate complex signal environments. Aeroflex's Vector Signal Player (VSP) software provides simple controls for signal files election, and output frequency and power control.
