Webinar Overview

As defense budgets shrink amid calls for smaller, more technologically capable military forces, the push to do more with less when it comes to test and measurement is stronger than ever. At the same time the performance and reliability requirements for aerospace and defense systems will continue to become increasingly stringent. In light of these seemingly conflicting requirements the tools for test need to adapt to these needs addressing issues such as ease of use, cost of test and perhaps most importantly- cutting edge performance. 

This webcast will explore the current trends for test and measurement equipment and software, showing how new architectures and capabilities are needed to help solve the quickly escalating characterization challenges of various application areas like Electronic Warfare (EW) systems, Active Electronically Steerable Antennas (AESA) and military communications. 

Test engineers, systems engineers, and managers who develop, test and characterize products within the aerospace and defense industry.
