The UK Space Conference 2023, taking place from 21-23 November at ICC Belfast, will gather members from the international space community. Rohde & Schwarz is set to present its portfolio of high-performing solutions for satellite communications and payload testing applications at the event.
Satellite communication systems need to meet various requirements, including direct broadcast, wireless communications, and remote sensing applications. They must also operate reliably 24/7 with a long system lifespan and undergo thorough testing to ensure quality of service throughout the satellite’s lifecycle.
Rohde & Schwarz will showcase state-of-the-art solutions at their stand for these industry challenges. This includes the R&S ZNA low-noise vector network analyzer, R&S SMW200 configurable vector signal generator, R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer, and R&S GSACSM signal monitoring solution. These instruments are trusted references in research laboratories worldwide.
Experts from Rohde & Schwarz will demonstrate how their solutions can help prepare systems for space operation. The portfolio offers test solutions suitable for both ground equipment and space vehicles. Applications highlighted include ground stations and terminals, positioning and navigation systems, satellite components and payloads, small satellites, and transmit/receive modules and antennas.
The R&S ZNA vector network analyzer combines excellent RF performance with a wide range of software features. Its configurable hardware concept allows users to customize low-noise sources, receivers, pulse modulators, and generators. With a user-friendly interface and powerful features, characterizing passive and active devices becomes effortless. The analyzer is available in two- and four-port models, and its frequency range extends from 10MHz.
