Radio Altimeters

A radar altimeter (RA), radio altimeter (RALT), electronic altimeter, or reflection altimeter measures altitude above the terrain presently beneath an aircraft or spacecraft by timing how long it takes a beam of radio waves to travel to ground, reflect, and return to the craft.

Optical Light Sources

A fibre light source is used to inject light into a fibre optic cable for the purpose of testing it. They come in two basic varieties: light emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes. They’re further differentiated by the wavelength they produce and the type of cable they test.

Visual Fault Locators

A visual fault identifier or visual fault locator (VFI / VFL) is a visible red laser designed to inject visible light energy into a fiber. Sharp bends, breaks, faulty connectors and other faults will “leak” red light allowing technicians to visually spot the defects.

GPS Simulators

As GPS receivers are built into more mission-critical devices for difficult application environments, and designed with the emerging capabilities of a multitude of GNSS constellations and augmentation systems, developers and manufacturers need better ways to guarantee performance. That’s where GPS signal generation comes in.
