When a threat is identified the optimal intercept point is automatically calculated, the countermeasures assembly is opened and an interceptor is launched which forms a 'beam' of fragments to intercept the threat at a range of 10 to 30 metres from the vehicle.
The IDTF1162 is a low-power, low-distortion dual 2300-2700 MHz RF to IF mixer with an ultra-linear (+43 dBm) third-order intercept point (IP3O) for superb intermodulation rejection, making it ideal for multi-carrier, multi-mode cellular systems found in 4G wireless base station transceivers.
Capable of defeating the full spectrum of direct fire, anti-armor rockets, missiles, and tank-fired high-explosive rounds, the system rapidly detects and tracks an incoming threat, classifies it, computes the optimal intercept point in space, and, if necessary, neutralizes it away from the platform.
4dB of gain, and an Output Third-Order Intercept Point (OIP3) of 49dBm, matching the highest linearity in its class, while consuming only 220mA from its single +5V supply.
The IDT F1150 and F1152 are low-power, low-distortion dual 1700 - 2200 MHz RF to IF mixers with ultra linear (+42 dBm) third-order intercept point (IP3O) for superb intermodulation rejection, making them ideal for multi-carrier, multi-mode cellular systems found in 4G wireless base stations.
The miniature amplifier family provides high gain, a high third-order intercept point (IP3) for good linearity, low noise figure (NF) and integrated 50-ohm input and output matching networks to simplify system design.
These features enable ESSM to arrive at the intercept point with more endgame speed and agility to counter the threat.
audio quality at the intercept point is far superior to premise recording and customer interactions are captured as they happen, resulting in much faster intelligence gathering.
The Low-Noise Amplifier Student Design Competition will require students to design, construct, measure, and demonstrate a high linearity (as measured by the output third-order intercept point value), low-noise amplifier at 2.
The new VSA features an exceptionally low phase noise of -129 dBc/Hz at a 10 kHz offset at 800 MHz, an average noise level of -165 dBm/Hz, a third-order intercept point of +24 dBm and absolute amplitude accuracy of +/-0.
