Using an Arbitrary Waveform Generator for Threat Generation

Almost any threat emitter – legacy or next generation AESA – can be realized using a combination of a modern Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) and a high speed integrated up-converting Advanced Signal Generator (ASG). This paper shows how to integrate the two instruments to generate appropriate waveforms then modify, amplitude, phase and frequency through 100 MHz to 18 GHz and give you the ability to create situations that can test specific ‘stress’ conditions using your latest waveform data at an appropriate Angle of Arrival (AOA) and power.
