The MS2830A spectrum analyzer/signal analyzer is now compatible with the Monics satellite carrier monitoring system from SAT Corp., a subsidiary of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions. The test instrument has been equipped with a new driver that allows the analyzer to be integrated into the Monics enterprise networked carrier monitoring system used by government agencies, satellite operators, satellite-communications (satcom) service providers, and telecommunications companies. The signal analyzer is available as a variety of models with different frequency ranges, including from 9 kHz to 3.6, 6.0, 13.5, 26.5, and 43.0 GHz. Analysis bandwidths can be as wide (optionally) as 125 MHz. The analyzer can be used for a variety of measurements, including bandwidth, center frequency, carrier-to-noise (C/N) ratio, and equivalent isotropic radiated power (EIRP) level. The instrument can also be used to detect interference based on known carrier plans and saved reference traces.
