Captronic Systems CE troposcatter

The Troposcatter Channel Emulator

Tropo-scatter Channel Emulator is based on COTS products serving validation of non-line-of-sight (NLOS) devices and has ability to simulate many Channel parameters with sophisticated algorithms and software. It acquires an IF/RF signal and generates four IF/RF outputs. All the four outputs are independent and non-coherent in nature. The effects of Tropo-scatter are being emulated on each output independently. It is configured in a 1:4 MIMO configuration. The system has 16 taps per channel making it 64taps for 4 channels.

It allows to emulate AWGN, Multipath, Attenuation, Delay, Phase Shift, Digital Impairment and Multitone Interference.

Satellite Link Emulator

Satellite Link Emulator helps in dynamic testing of Tx- Rx Links by emulating various realistic and accurate channel models in satellite communication with easy to operate and user friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface). Software allows configuring the system to simulate LEO, MEO and GEO satellites orbits, perform real-time satellite tracking, orbit prediction and Orbital Parameters such as Position, Slant Range, Elevation angle etc.

It can emulate satellite specific impairments like Phase Noise: LO instability, Noise density, Offset frequency and non-linearity: Amplifier Saturation level, AM/AM Characteristic, AM/PM Characteristic also, AGWN, Multipath, Attenuation, Delay, Phase Shift, Digital Impairment, and Multitone Interference.

Captronic Systems CE AWGN

Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) Generator

As its name may indicate, the AWGN Generator allows to emulate what is called "Additive white Gaussian noise”. It is a basic noise model used in information theory to mimic the effect of many random processes that occur in nature. This emulator has frequency range of 10 MHz to 3 GHz, with multipath up to 16 taps, with the noise density equals to ≥-85 dBm/Hz.  The equipment comes with an easy to carry portable form factor.
