The cyber/electromagnetic space can be as dangerous as the conventional ground, air, and sea battlespaces. That’s why military and defense organizations task companies such as Textron Systems and Daqscribe to build the most advanced Electromagnetic (RF) threat simulation solutions.

Textron Systems now delivers its Radio Frequency Scoring Tool (RFST) with Daqscribe’s Ethernet recording technology built in. During RF environment simulation, Textron Systems’ RFST provides persistent signal performance scoring of a co-located RF simulator, including Textron Systems’ A2PATS products.

RFST digitizes the simulated RF environment which produces massive amounts of streaming digital radio information (i.e., I-Q data). I-Q data packets are reliably recorded and processed on Daqscribe’s high-speed Ethernet recording technology for post-scenario signals analysis.

RF SCORING TOOL (RFST) FOR VALIDATING RF SIMULATOR SIGNAL OUTPUT

  • Immediate feedback of how accurately RF outputs match commanded Pulse Descriptor Words (PDWs)
  • Records hours of high-fidelity, I-Q data for post-analysis
  • Multiple users can post-process RF data simultaneously
  • RF signal can be recorded while the previous run is being offloaded and analyzed
