Radar and EW researchers and systems engineers need to prove out novel concepts quickly, in order to meet funding timelines or to transition capability into fielded systems. Pace is limited by the speed of building testbeds and migrating IP from simulation to hardware. Experimenting with firmware on mission hardware is unintuitive and takes deployed assets out of use. Custom board designs typically lack software support, making them time consuming to create and sustain. NI COTS components help:
NI COTS components include modular I/O and signal processing blocks, with infrastructure for synchronization and data movement.
Synchronized COTS IF, RF, and microwave Tx/Rx modules scale from one to many channels, for architectures including digital phased array radar.
The path from simulation to hardware is simplified by algorithmic IP reuse from MathWorks software into the LabVIEW FPGA Module through HDL Coder™.
Tight software and hardware integration allows researchers to focus on algorithm design and validation rather than infrastructure development.
IP export features in the LabVIEW FPGA Module ease the transition from the lab to tactical hardware, saving time in development.
NI offers a variety of solution integration options customized to your application-specific requirements. You can use your own internal integration teams for full system control or leverage the expertise of NI and our worldwide NI Partner Network to obtain a turnkey solution.
The NI Partner Network is a global community of domain, application, and overall test development experts working closely with NI to meet the needs of the engineering community. NI Partners are trusted solution providers, systems integrators, consultants, product developers, and services and sales channel experts skilled across a wide range of industries and application areas.
NI works with customers throughout the life of an application, delivering training, technical support, consultation and integration services, and maintenance programs. Teams can discover new skills by participating in NI-specific and geographic user groups and build proficiency with online and in-person training.
