ASHBURN, Va. – The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the TTS-9800-2 programmable tri-band multimode transmitter for aerospace and defense test and measurement instrumentation applications like flight test, remotely piloted vehicle communications, and launch vehicle telemetry.
The TTS-9800-2 delivers high RF power efficiency, and its user-programmable multimode transmitters speed and simplify RF band selection in the field for flight test applications.
The TTS-9800-2 supports transmission in L-band, S-band, and lower and middle C-band, and is designed to operate in the harsh environmental rugged conditions of aerospace test applications. The transmitter also provides modulation, forward error correction, and space-time coding compatibility to the IRIG-106-17 telemetry standard.
The device’s user programmability options are via serial and parallel interfaces, and offers a second output and support for space-time coding and tri-band transmission.
The TTS-9800-2 tri-band transmitter provides dual outputs at 10 Watts. Both of its outputs support space-time coding to, for example, eliminate destructive interference between the top and bottom antennas on an aircraft, and mitigates occasional signal loss.
