Millimeter Wave Measurement
May 2011SA PhotonicsRequest Info
SA Photonics has developed a millimeter wave measurement system
(MWMS), a high-power measurement and calibration unit that tests and calibrates
millimeter wave sources and instrument test ranges. It records power densities in
frequencies ranging from 40 to 110 GHz with an accuracy of ±0.5 dB. The MWMS
measures millimeter wave emissions directly from their source, providing operators
with accurate and timely information about power and frequency. It has applicability
to 95-GHz active denial systems. The company says that, as the use of active denial
systems for nonlethal applications grows, defense and homeland security agencies
will need MWMS to effectively calibrate these systems and ensure their safe use.
The system comprises a photonic probe, a processing unit, a fiber optic spool and
up to 5 km of fiber optic cable.
