With its fibre optical delay line technology, Eastern OptX provides an efficient solution to the market where transmission delays are required without having the need to perform these tests in real field situations.
The fibre optical technology has many great advantages, one of the most important is the enormous bandwidth (40 GHz) in which signals can be delayed. This allows users of broadband systems such as frequency hopping or wide-band multi-channel radar systems to receive, delay and retransmit the received signal without tuning replication systems.
Delay Line Products
As most fire and control radar systems are looking for incoming targets, the Eastern OptX delay lines can be fitted with Doppler modulators that provide the reflected pulse with a simulated speed. Without this option, many of these systems neglect echoes. As the target simulator uses low-loss optical fibre to create the distance between the radar and the target, there is almost no difference between the amplitude of a close by and far away target reflection. To create a more real world simulation, the system can be fitted with an optional variable attenuator that varies the level of reflection as a function of the distance.

Radar Altimeter Test Sets
Fibre optical based systems used in the calibration of altimeters.
This products wideband capabilities offer some great advantages especially in cases where the new LPI (Low Probability of Intercept) Radio Altimeters are used in Military applications such as helicopters and UAVs. These wideband, spread spectrum like signals can easily be handled by Eastern OptX delay lines where IF based system suffer in frequency agility.
