The IFR IFF-45TS is an RF signal simulator that provides support for AIMS Mark XIIA transponders and interrogators. It operates under remote control from a computer or ATE system and provides versatile signal generation and measurement capability of Mark XIIA system signals in bench and over-the-air applications.
IFR IFI-45TS Features:
Dual I/O for diversity transponder or sum / difference interrogator testing
Separate RF I/O for direct connection to equipment under test, or connection to antennas for over-the-air testing
May be configured with optional interfaces supporting AIMS 97-900 (external KIT-1C, KIR-1C Mode 4), or appliqué AIMS 04-900 Type A or AIMS 04-900 Type B Mode 4/5 cryptographic equipment
Software Defined Radio design provides waveform flexibility and future growth potential
Dual-signal generators can produce coordinated signals for echo and interference testing
Antenna ports provide one watt signal generator outputs and -60 dBm sensitive receivers to allow for extended range over-the-air testing
Maximum dynamic range of transponder receiver can be tested at a range of up to 30 ft. using a unity gain antenna
Can produce levels above MTL at up to 10,000 ft. (greater distances or power levels are achievable with a directional antenna)
Remote interfaces: GPIB, USB, RS-232 and Ethernet
Typical applications include:
Support for engineering development of Mark XIIA equipment (Mode 5)
Manufacturing ATE for Mark XIIA equipment
Support for AIMS 03-1000 and DO-181 certification testing Over-the-air testing of Mark XIIA equipment
Test range to 3 km with appropriate antennas
Ramp testing of installed equipment performance
