RF Sensing

The ability to sense important signals of interest (SOIs) in a crowded spectrum has become more challenging for military and government personnel. As spectrum density grows, understanding what is in your environment at any given time has become increasingly complex. RF monitoring with the RSA500 provides real-time situational awareness in the field to quickly identify and monitor spectrum violations, such as unauthorized transmission, LPI threats, hazardous power or emissions control conditions.

Radar

Advancements in radar technology have led to adoption in mobile applications ranging from defense systems to autonomous vehicles. With applications operating across a large spectrum range, it’s important to have spectrum analysis solutions that provide the ability to quickly and accurately identify sources of interference and noise. The Tektronix RSA500 series provides unparalleled performance for analyzing radar signals from the UHF to Ku bands. In a compact form factor, the RSA500 is the perfect choice for on the range, in the field or in the lab.

Electronic Warfare

Operating in today’s battlefield has been amplified by advancements in electronic warfare (EW). The proliferation of high-end electronics and the evolution of commercial technologies have given adversaries unprecedented capabilities. Tektronix Real-time Spectrum Analyzers provide real-time, robust visibility into signals emitted into the electromagnetic spectrum to provide Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) and identify potential threats before they occur.

Spectrum Monitoring and Interference hunting

Mobile communications are creating a complex and crowded signal environment with unprecedented spectrum capacity pressure. Tektronix’ Real-time Spectrum Analyzers help you discover and examine sources of interference quickly, so you can locate and identify unwanted activity. Ensure your signal integrity and compliance to standards using the RSA500 for real-time spectrum insights.

EMI/EMC pre-compliance Testing

Save cost and precious time by performing pre-compliance testing in your lab with our Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers. You can use peak detection with a free version of SignalVu-PC. You also get more accurate results with quasi-peak and average detection by purchasing the additional option EMCVu.

Datasheet Manual

EMC pre-compliance testing with EMCVu.

EMCVu is an all-in-one software solution for EMI/EMC pre-compliance testing and troubleshooting that runs on your own PC. This gives you an easy, fast, accurate and affordable way to determine if your product designs are ready to submit to the test house for EMI/EMC radiation emission compliance testing. This is done through push button support for multiple standards, automated multiple measurement/multiple format reporting, ambient noise calibration and comparison, harmonic markers and faster scans using peak detector and spot measurements with quasi-peak and average detector failures.

The base version ships free with the product; add options to configure the software for your application.

Optional applications tailored for your RF applications

Application-optimized software is available for P25, Bluetooth, LTE, Mapping, Playback of recorded files, WLAN, settling time, audio, modulation, pulse, and OFDM analysis. Wideband satellite and point-to-point microwave links can be directly observed with SignalVu-PC analysis software. Settling time measurements (SVT) are easy and automated. The user can select measurement bandwidth, tolerance bands, reference frequency (auto or manual), and establish up to 3 tolerance bands vs. time for Pass/Fail testing. Settling time may be referenced to external or internal trigger, and from the last settled frequency or phase.
