Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) said it has finished detailed performance testing on its advanced pulse generator, which represents the next technology evolution for the company´s combat electromagnetic environment simulator product that is used to test and validate the performance of electronic warfare equipment.
The APG utilizes high speed direct digital synthesizer technology to generate radio frequency waveforms. This DDS-based capability offers industry-leading RF performance and brings significant advantages to the user, including higher modulation sample rates, wider bandwidth intrapulse modulation, higher precision and resolution, and reduced calibration time. The capability also helps reduce RF part count, which leads to reduced cost and increased system reliability.
