RF Expansion Module for Cassidian ATEC® Series 6 ATE

Best In Test 2012The RF Expansion Module (RFEM) is designed to support testing of airborne RF components on the ATEC® Series 6 ATE. Developed and manufactured by Aeroflex Test Solutions in partnership with Cassidian, the RFEM provides a convenient platform that is completely compatible with new and existing ATEC® Series 6 ATE systems.

A library of TPS solutions is currently in development by Aeroflex that will cover the full range of navigation, communication, TCAS, transponder, and other RF systems. 
The product strategy has full OEM support and CMM listing.

The RF instrumentation package includes the new Aeroflex PXI format synthetic instrument modules for both signal generation and analysis. These products offer very high performance in a compact size, permitting greater resource density in the RFEM tower.
