– Abstract of a SAF Tehnika Blog–
For flight test in civil and military aviation and heavy weaponry tests, it is crucial to receive important data in real time, to analyze flight characteristics and health status during the test. To receive this data, usually, telemetry tracking antennas are used.
Well-designed tracking antennas like the WTW-LSC series from WTW Anlagenbau allow a smooth and easy transfer of crucial data from the flying object to the ground control station even if they are moving fast or operating several kilometers away from the ground station.
These flight or weaponry tests are usually men, time and cost-intensive, so any problem with the telemetric system that might occur during the test has to be solved fast and efficiently. Here the spectrum analyzer, Spectrum Compact, from SAF Tehnika is a real game-changer. Spectrum Compact is deployed and ready for measurement within seconds. The device is specifically designed for the field use and easy to operate, so also technicians unfamiliar with spectrum analyzers can use Spectrum Compact easily.
Using Spectrum Compact, problems with the receiver, transmitter or the cabling can be identified and resolved fast and easy. Which saves valuable time and money. As Spectrum Compact is the size of a smartphone it can easily be carried at any time, which improves the reaction time of the troubleshooting technician even further.
Currently, Spectrum Compact is available in the frequencies 2-40Ghz, 56-67Ghz and 70-87Ghz. Additionally, a Signal Generator in the same form factor in frequency range 6-40Ghz is available.

Portable Auto Tracking Antenna, the WTW-LSC 20
– Abstract of a Rampart Defense Solutions Newsletter –
The newest man portable, tri band tracking system with the optional Lumistar 2 channel receiver, is a complete Ethernet based, three band tracking system with camera and built-in GUI. We just completed several days of testing the antenna tracking system in very cold weather tracking aircraft on the runway out to over 85 miles down range.
Some preliminary results of testing:
The antenna worked really well tracking a V-22 aircraft that was running on the taxiway with a 10 Watt L-Band transmitter. The rotors chopping the signal, piles of snow, chain link fences and numerous hangers nearby all contributed to the worst possible multipath environment but the LSC-20 continued to track while the aircraft took off, hovered over a snow and ice covered field and later landed.
The antenna also tracked a new F-35 fighter as it ran up , taxied to the active runway and took off behind a stand of trees and a large hanger. The Navy engineer in charge of all the Pax River antennas later told our team that it tracked all the way across the Chesapeake bay to Wallops Island and beyond for a distance of about 85 miles as measured on their TSPI system. This aircraft had a 20 Watt L Band transmitter and was flying low level across the bay and then at 15K ft. over the ocean.
We also witnessed a solid track on other orbiting and over flying aircraft in both L and S Band at the N.A.S. During the tests the antenna was sitting on top of a small scissor lift about 6-8 ft. above the ground.
The antenna has also been successfully tested in Germany tracking a small drone with a 1/10 watt C-Band transmitter in the snow.
