Giga-tronics RT-1009 Radar Test Set

 

The Giga-tronics RT-1009 Radar Test Set is designed to test and calibrate advanced radar operating over the X-band frequency range (8.5 GHz - 9.6 GHz), which is the most widely used frequency band for both airborne and marine radar. This system is excellent for test and calibration of, "Weather Radar, Search Radar, Navigation Radar, Missile Control Radar, and Gun Fire Control Radar".
 

The Giga-tronics RT1009 combines an RF signal generator, programmable pulse generator, peak power meter, and frequency counter into a single test instrument. Each component is simultaneously triggered from a single pulse. The design of the RT1009 utilizes a precision digital counter and an indirect synthesis phase-lock system to provide a superior radar test set.
 

The push-button keypad and menu driven front panel allows for easy access of all the RT-1009 Test Sets functions and features, while control via IEEE-488 bus gives you the ATE capability you desire. The Giga-tronics RT-1009 also provides for automatic compensation of cable and coupler loss to make for a precision Radar Test Set.
