Calibration and Measurement Solutions:
Pendulum Instruments GPS/GNSS simulators are easy-to-use and affordable GPS/GNSS satellite simulators with scenario-based instruments. Generating the same RF signals that are broadcast by navigation satellites, engineers can use the simulators to test any device or system with a GPS receiver, to verify that their system will work in any real world environment.
Time and Frequency Counters/ Analysers
These measurement systems are designed to carry out analysis and calibration of frequency, phase, or time in production test systems, laboratories, R&D settings or in the field. Most commonly these are used to test and measure how various pieces of equipment respond to pulsed radar signals; applications include military electronics, traffic control radar, ship and weather radar, and medical electronics.
