The ever-evolving aerospace and defense industry requires continuous integration of new technologies to innovate and adapt throughout all program stages. Your test tools must provide end-to-end expertise and solutions to help you accelerate development and achieve operational readiness with confidence.
Join Keysight as we discuss the latest architectures and capabilities in Satcom, electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO), wideband recording analysis and playback, and digital twin technology at our Aerospace and Defense Symposium in Ottawa.

Testing Your RWR Accuracy Matters
Accuracy is of the utmost importance when testing a radar warning receiver, and maintaining the highest accuracy of your test system is essential. One is only as strong as the other, else you might be initiating countermeasures miles off-target. This presentation will explore how measurement errors and inaccuracies in your test system can compromise the effectiveness of an EW system. We will describe the calibration procedures that can be implemented to achieve higher (EW) system performance and traceability necessary for the assurance test & evaluation engineers seek.
9:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.
This presentation will cover Satcom basics, including the challenges of low Earth orbit (LEO) RF communications and the channel effects that satellite operators have to overcome to close the link budget. We will look at the advantages of satellite modulation standards in the industry, focusing on DVB-S2X and DVB-RCS2.

High Bandwidth Oscilloscopes for Multi-Port, Coherent RF Pulse Analysis
When a warfighter enters the battlefield, whether in the sky or on the ground or sea, they depend on sophisticated radar and electronic attack jammer systems to protect them from harm. Before such systems ever are put to the test in a real conflict, they can be evaluated on the lab bench with tools like the UXR wideband oscilloscope, used for multi-port, coherent, RF pulse analysis. With the combination of real-time digital down conversion and variable-length segmented capture, the UXR can digitize and store the essential information needed on every radar echo or jammer pulse in a typical EW scenario. This presentation will walk through a variety of EW analysis examples.
12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. / Lunch
1:30 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Simulation with Network Digital Twins
In the multi-domain battlefield, personnel relies on a geographically dispersed, connected network of sensors, platforms, and weapon systems to execute their missions in harsh and contested environments. Mission planning must accurately incorporate the evaluation of network performance and cyber resilience in a holistic survivability context based on realistic tactical environments. The network digital twin concept has become a viable solution to mission assurance through network planning, deployment, reconfiguration, and resilience to electromagnetic spectrum operations. This presentation will explore the network digital twin concept and show a multi-domain network solution that accurately models the impact of cyber attacks.
