White Paper: Overview of Tests on Radar Systems and Components

OpenSystems Media

This application note along with its corresponding white paper 1MA207 show how to use the Rohde and Schwarz radar product portfolio to tackle test and measurement tasks in modern radar technology. Target groups are students who want to become familiar with radar issues as well as radar professionals who want to solve certain test and measurement tasks.

White Paper: T&M solutions for software defined radios (SDR)

OpenSystems Media

After its initial implementation in civil mobile telephones, the concept of a software defined radio (SDR) has now started making inroads in radios used for military applications. This document provides an introduction to SDR as used for military radios and presents the relevant T and M solutions offered by Rohde and Schwarz.

White Paper: Integrating System and Software Engineering for Certifiable Avionics Applications

Thierry Le Sergent Esterel TechnologiesMathieu Viala Esterel TechnologiesAlain Le Guennec Esterel Technologies Esterel Technologies

Avionics systems are complex systems that integrate hardware, communication media, have many interactions with other subsystems within or outside of the aircraft, and, for the system discussed in this presentation, integrate software that must be developed according to DO-178B guidelines. System engineering and software engineering are two engineering disciplines that are historically handled by teams with different cultures, and when their engineering processes are supported by tools, use different, incompatible, tools. This very often leads to difficult collaboration, with at some point redundant information, and inconsistencies.

White Paper: PCI Express(r) Over Cable Link Tuning Essentials

Sr. Design Engineer

The promise of simple I/O expansion in an existing host server is made an implementation reality with proper PCI Express(r) link tuning and design fundamentals. Engineering a successful PCI Express over cable installation requires that the PCIe link-tuning fundamentals discussed in this article be properly implemented.

White Paper: MIL-STD-1553 Tutorial

Ron Rupert GE Intelligent Platforms, Inc.

This guide provides an introduction to the MIL-STD-1553 data bus, its history, applications, and use. Additionally, this guide introduces the various test plans and discusses how the GE Intelligent Platforms MIL-STD-1553 product line can solve some of your testing and application needs.

White Paper: Automated Target Tracking — Closing the gap between the Predictable and the Unpredictable

Michael Grumbine GE Intelligent Platforms, Inc.

While there are several methods of detecting movement and measuring the direction and the velocity of motion, the method that most resembles those human capabilities of visual input is the use of imaging sensors and automated target tracking hardware. Most autonomous or remotely piloted systems already have imaging sensors on-board, so the addition of an automated target tracking capability builds upon capabilities that are already resident in the platform.
