Radar, Electronic Warfare, and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT)

Modern radar, electronic warfare, and SIGINT systems generate, process, and record wide signal bandwidths at a broad range of frequencies. Engineers need flexible hardware and software to adapt these systems to new signal types and threats.

Validate Your Radar System Using Real-Time Target Generation

Radar target generators allow you to create various scenarios with a user-programmable FPGA. Simulating these real-world conditions reduces the cost and expense of field trials and flight tests. Learn how you can use NI’s modular COTS platform built on PXI for real-time, closed-loop target generation for radar system-level validation at X-band and beyond.

Adapt to Emerging Threats with Software-Defined, FPGA-Enabled RF Systems

As threats evolve, radar, electronic warfare, RF spectrum monitoring, and SIGINT systems must have higher performance, wider bandwidths, and faster response speeds while adapting to emerging needs and operating for the long term. The development tools used to design, validate, and test these systems must keep pace. NI delivers solutions for rapid prototyping, rugged deployment, flexible validation, and functional test of C4ISR and radar systems. NI's software defined radio and FPGA-enabled instrumentation reduces development risk through integrated hardware and software and increases confidence by improving test coverage.
