SUBSYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT

Hardgate

Highly flexible system based on a modular design with separate transmit and receive units as well as adjustable pulse parameters to suppress cross-talk in RCS and antenna measurement facilities.

Easy handling due to an one-cable solution for power and signal (synchronization and data) and the possibility to set the parameter adjustments via PC or at the control unit.

This hardgating system is compatible with usual measurement in-strumentations.
