Agilent Technologies, the world’s premier Test and Measurement Company today, launched five new state-of-the-art products in the aerospace and defense segment at its annual mega event Aerospace and Defense Symposium – 2012. The newly launched products and solutions extend Agilent’s leadership in this domain. These test and measurement products will play a decisive role in revolutionizing the strategic areas of Aerospace & Defense sectors which will surely be an asset to the Indian Army, Navy and Air force.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sudhir Tangri, Country Manager, Agilent Technologies, Electronics Measurement Group said “We are excited and proud to organize the sixth edition of Agilent`s Aerospace and Defense symposium. We have been getting an overwhelming response from industry leaders, key decision makers, senior scientists, technical officers from DRDO Labs, Government R&D and the armed forces. This is a great platform to exchange ideas that can better our Aerospace & Defense ecosystem”.
“Agilent Technologies has been continuously offering Innovative test and measurement products worldwide to address the growing needs of both R&D and field requirements that encompasses sub-segments like RADAR, Satellites, Military Communication and Surveillance, to name a few. India is a growing market and we are quite positive about increasing our engagement levels across sectors. ” added Mr. Sudhir Tangri.
The symposium highlighted the recent developments in off-the-shelf test equipment which would help customers to improve the test procedure. The symposium focused primarily at military communications and radar systems to discuss test & measurement theory, measurement challenges and recent technology advances.
Aerospace & Defense Symposium, 2012 was attended by key influencers from the aerospace and defense sector. The event is being supported by IEEE - the world’s largest professional association for advancement of technology.
The newly launched products & solutions from Agilent Technologies are:
1) X Series Signal Generators
Crafted to create signals capable of testing your very best devices and designs, the X-Series signal generators offer industry-leading performance, sophisticated software, and low cost of ownership. With these capabilities, Agilent’s new MXG and EXG products (available in analog and vector models) support the development of components and receivers that meet the complex challenges of mitigating interference, speeding data throughput and increasing signal quality in applications such as radar, military communications and consumer wireless.
2) Infiniium 90000 Q-Series Oscilloscopes
The 90000 Q-Series represents another breakthrough for Agilent Infiniium oscilloscopes. At its maximum bandwidth the Q-Series breaks the 60-GHz barrier, with a -3 dB point of 63 GHz. The 33-GHz model allows engineers to simultaneously trigger on and capture signals on all four channels with no compromise. These two specifications allow the oscilloscopes to make measurements on devices designed to conform to emerging standards and complex signals which require higher Resolution Bandwidth in Defense applications.
3) PNA-L Vector Network Analyzer
Agilent’s new N523xA PNA-L vector network analyzers, replacing the existing N5230C models, offer design and manufacturing engineers the highest performance (up to 50 GHz) in a mid-range VNA, along with lower cost and future-proof capabilities. They are available in five frequency models, starting at 300 kHz, with two or four ports available for the 13.5- and 20-GHz models, and two ports available for the 8.5-, 43.5- and 50-GHz products.
4) U2020 X Series USB Power Sensors
Agilent’s new U2020 X-Series USB power sensors, the world’s fastest USB power sensors, offer the capability to measure peak and average power of a power meter in a compact and portable form factor. With the peak and average power measurement capabilities of a power meter, these compact high-performance sensors allow engineers to test devices faster and with greater efficiency and accuracy.
5) Agilent U1810B USB Coaxial Switch
U1810B is a USB-powered, single-pole double-throw coaxial switch, operating from DC to 18 GHz. The first-to-market microwave switch driven by a USB port, the Agilent U1810B will provide system-design and manufacturing engineers a long-operating-life solution with convenient RF switching.
