In this standalone module, we explore active electronically steered array (AESA) antennas and the unique problems they pose for the test engineer. Our attention will be focused primarily on AESA control issues: test plan complexity, measurement timelines, and optimizing test efficiency. A practical discussion of beam steering interfaces and how they affect range timing and antenna performance will give the audience a baseline for understanding their own AESA integration challenges. Finally, some practical error-checking techniques are presented that will help verify coordination between the range controller and the AESA being tested, for trustworthy and efficient testing.
Once purchased, the bundle is available immediately and gives you access to pre-recorded lectures listed below and slides (that you watch at your own pace).
Note: a separate email with instructions and a link to view the lecture material will be sent.
