TSDG Radar Target Simulator
The TSDG is a highly integrated, 19” rack mountable radar target simulator, which is capable of simulating a single target with programmable Doppler shift and RCS. Multi target generation is optionally possible. All settings can be programmed over Ethernet. The TSDG receives the radar sensor signal via an antenna connected to its input, a programmable synthesizer converts the frequency down to an intermediate frequency (IF). A second individually programmable synthesizer converts the frequency back up before it gets transmitted back to the radar sensor by a second antenna.
The delta frequency between the two synthesizers defines the Doppler shift of the signal. The RCS of a radar target can also be adjusted by programming of a variable attenuator inside the TSDG. Real time delays can be realized with the TSDG by inserting a coaxial cable or fiber optic media converter into the IF signal path.
Three models are available in the TSDG family:
- TSDG-0000xx supports both the 24 GHz and 76-81 GHz bands
- TSDG-0001xx supports the 24 GHz band
- TSDG-0002xx supports the 76-81 GHz band
The single band models (0001xx, 0002xx) can be upgraded to work with sensors in all supported frequency bands by adding an additional frequency converter (hardware option).
