RF Test Systems
CIE developed and integrated five test systems for use in doing surveys of RF interference at airports and related FAA facilities. These systems included an extensive set of antennas covering up to a few GHz, a spectrum analyzer and a laptop computer along with related accessories. The laptop contained CIE developed software which controlled the operation of the spectrum analyzer and also stored the results of the scans for later analysis. The system was capable of being operated in either manual or automatic mode and could monitor frequency bands for long periods of time if needed to detect intermittent interferers. The system was packaged in two heavy duty travel cases.
conducted a number of field surveys at airports such as Atlanta and JFK.
Some of these surveys were in response to specific complaints of
interference such as at Atlanta when concern was raised over possible
interference from power generating stations on the airport with an
explosives detection system which was being demonstrated there. Other
surveys were in preparation for the installation of new equipment in order
to determine their suitability for the existing environment.
