The test phases are key in the design and commissioning of new electronic warfare (ELINT, SIGINT) and radar equipment. It is therefore essential to have reproducible, identifiable and precise test data during the different stages of the cycle. New types of instruments, including SDR systems, require frequency converters compatible with the application frequency bands.

SPHEREA’s Up & Down converters combine a wide instantaneous bandwidth (up to 2Ghz), with extensive frequency coverage (up to 18 / 26 / 40Ghz) making this equipment a unique product on the market and capable of responding to a wide variety of programs.
