RF Expansion Module for SPHEREA ATEC® Test Systems

The RF Expansion Module (RFEM) is designed to support testing of airborne RF components on the ATEC® Test System. Developed and manufactured by VIAVI Test Solutions in partnership with SPHEREA, the RFEM provides a convenient platform that is completely compatible with new and existing ATEC® Test Systems.

A library of TPS solutions is currently in development by VIAVI Solutions 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 VIAVI 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.
