NIST posted a solicitation on FedBizOpps for a vector signal generator (VSG) for use in a cavity ring-down spectrometer (CRDS) application.
The centerpiece of the U.S. Navy’s airborne Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) mission is the Raytheon AN/AQS-22 Airborne Low Frequency Sonar (ALFS). The AN/ AQS-22 is the only deployed “dipping active sonar” with multi-frequency operational capabilities that adapts to varying environmental conditions and identifies threats sooner over a large area.
TEVET Case Study: National Instruments – FPGA with Protocol Awareness & Onboard Processing RT Application
Working on the leading edge of emerging wireless technologies, WNUF must utilize test tools that are not readily available on the market. This requires them to define their own test tools via FPGAs. However, most FPGAs do not provide adequate flexibility when it comes to Input/Output (I/O) Protocol Awareness, and therefore, are not fast enough with onboard processing and real-time analysis.
US Navy NSWC Corona, US Marine Corps Air Station Yuma Test Range required a VSA to perform maintenance and troubleshoot RF equipment such as UHF/VHF Radios, Wireless Local Area Net-work (WLAN) 802.11a/b/g/n Radios, and RF Emitters.
TEVET Case Study: Astronics Test Systems – Testing P25 Digital Mobile Radio (Legacy/Emerging Standards)
The DoD US Army Fort Bragg, Mission and Installation Contracting Command (MICC) plans, integrates, awards, and administers contracts throughout the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) to ensure operational readiness. One of the biggest initiatives the DoD began in 2014 is the modernization of their mission critical Test, Measurement & Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) requirements.
TEVET Case Study: Keysight Technologies – Digital Oscilloscope Test Applications for Electronics Warfare
Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation (LMC), for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC04-94AL85000.
TEVET Case Study: National Instruments – Large Cavitation Channel (LCC) Data Acquisition Application
The DoD US Navy NAVSEA NSWC Carderock has operated the William B Morgan Large Cavitation Channel (LCC) since 1991. The LCC is one of the world's largest and most technically advanced high speed, variable-pressure closed-loop water tunnel facilities. This facility is designed for a wide variety of hydrodynamic and hydro-acoustic tests. Its overall size and capabilities allow test model Reynolds numbers to approach, or even achieve, those of full-scale air or water-borne transportation systems.
The FAA put out an Open Market Survey to identify a 20GHz High Performance RF Analog Signal Generator under their modernization efforts, as reported to Congress for funding in US General Accounting Office (GAO) RCED-99-25.
The U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) Electromagnetic Radiation Effects (EMRE) facility is one of the largest Open Air Tests (OATS) facilities in the USA. The facility provides full body illumination testing of large vehicle systems. Many large test items come to EMRE every year to conduct their mandatory Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) testing.
The US Navy Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren site employs approximately 5,700 Engineers & Scientists, and is one of the US Navy’s top Research & Development (R&D) facilities.
