Testing Digital Radios

 Radio testing with the Cobham 8800 radio test set

Although digital modulation alignments are similar to alignments used in analog radio systems, digital radios require more precise alignment to achieve optimum performance and must be verified for digital modulation performance.

Indoor Signal Mapping

 Signal Mapping with the Cobham 8800 radio test set

TRX Systems' NEON® Signal Mapper in conjunction with the 8800SX, enables automatic geo-referencing of signal and sensor data for indoor test and measurement applications.

Signal Mapper leverages key parts of TRX’s patented NEON Location Service including sensor fusion and mapping algorithms that enable real-time 3D location and mapping within buildings.

Signal Mapper’s ability to locate and geo-reference users where GPS is not available simplifies and dramatically reduces the time required for mapping indoor signal and sensor data.
