Radar Target Echo Simulator

Radar target Echo Simulator

Development of today’s sophisticated Radar Systems require advanced simulation and measurement techniques in order to evaluate performance under different operating modes and to ensure system’s specifications are met and fully characterized. To achieve this, more realistic testing with RF signals representing the field environment conditions are required. Hence, radar designers are looking for a more advanced, flexible and real-time radar simulation system through which they can simulate Radar Echo Characteristics to simulate the radar scenario replicating the required field conditions.

These field conditions will include multiple target models, RCS models, clutter models, and ECM features such as jammers.

DRFM based approach uses an electronic method for digitally capturing and retransmitting RF signals. It downconverts RF signal to digital baseband, processes them on FPGA and retransmits the digital baseband signal by upconverting the signals to the required RF frequency. This system simulates Radar Targets / Echoes with parameters such as Range, Doppler and RCS along with Radar Jamming Techniques.

Digilogic Radar Target Echo Simulator is one of the most effective means for test and evaluation of modern radars at lab environment by simulating the real-world scenarios using a user-friendly scenario generator. Digilogic RTES has been utilized for evaluating performance of various Radar Seekers, Surveillance & Tracking Radars.

Digilogic has continued efforts to develop and improve RTES on its earlier designs and now we are offering two variants of RTES.

Benchtop RTES

Digilogic Standard RTES is designed to test the performance of modern Radars with high bandwidth upto 1000MHz (instantaneous BW). It covers all the Radar Frequencies in L, S, C, X and Ku bands. RTES is also capable to stream the target parameters over MIL-STD-1553B protocol. As the RTES has been designed & developed on a scalable architecture, it enables us to expand a greater number of channels if required.

Portable RTES

Digilogic Portable RTES is a step forward in trying to minimize the dimensions that makes this product field deployable. This is designed for low bandwidth applications and operates at L, S, C, X & Ku frequency bands.

It can be operated in two modes i.e., locally & remotely. Local operation is with 2.4” display & keypad. Remote operation is with RS232/LAN interface. RTES is capable to stream the target parameters through MIL-STD-1553B protocol.
