This application note describes how a modern battery-powered / portable Microwave Vector Network Analyzer with Time Domain Gating can make it easy to do RCS tests on the flight line or in the field.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/measurement-radar-cross-section-using-vna-master-handheld-vna" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/measurement-radar-cross-section-using-vna-master-handheld-vna#comments Military Defense Electronics White Papers Test & Measurement Tue, 31 Jan 2017 17:17:00 +0000 9791 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Bandpass Filter Screens 0.7 to 6.0 GHz http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/components/bandpass-filter-screens-07-60-ghz <div class="node-body article-body">A digitally tunable filter provides adjustable passbands from 0.7 to 6.0 GHz. </div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/components/bandpass-filter-screens-07-60-ghz" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/components/bandpass-filter-screens-07-60-ghz#comments Communications Components Test & Measurement Fri, 21 Oct 2016 20:46:00 +0000 9781 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Sidewinder Missile Tests Hit the Mark http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/sidewinder-missile-tests-hit-mark <div class="node-body article-body">Testing verified the effectiveness and reliability on aircraft communications to, and control of, AIM-9X Block I Sidewinder missiles.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/sidewinder-missile-tests-hit-mark" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/sidewinder-missile-tests-hit-mark#comments Communications Test & Measurement Tue, 04 Oct 2016 20:52:00 +0000 9701 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Get the New 3-Part Series of Radar Measurement Resources from Keysight Technologies http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/get-new-3-part-series-radar-measurement-resources-keysight-technologies <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Keysight Technologies </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Radar Measurements Part 1: A Framework for Understanding: Deriving the Radar Range Equation - This application note is the first in a series that delves into radar systems and the associated measurement challenges and solution.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/get-new-3-part-series-radar-measurement-resources-keysight-technologies" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/get-new-3-part-series-radar-measurement-resources-keysight-technologies#comments White Papers Test & Measurement Thu, 12 May 2016 15:40:00 +0000 8831 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com VNA Test Cables Reach 67 GHz http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/vna-test-cables-reach-67-ghz <div class="node-body article-body">A line of flexible test cables supports test applications to 50 and 67 GHz.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/vna-test-cables-reach-67-ghz" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/vna-test-cables-reach-67-ghz#comments Communications Test & Measurement Mon, 09 May 2016 19:32:00 +0000 8801 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Understanding Vector Network Analysis http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/military-defense-electronics/understanding-vector-network-analysis <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Anritsu </div> <div class="node-body article-body">In this 62 page understanding guide we will introduce the basic fundamentals of the Vector Network Analyzer (VNA).
