Syndetic has just completed another successful design project with SIXARMS, an innovative company that is using cutting edge unmanned aerial vehicle (i.e. drone) technologies to produce efficient, accurate and cost-effective measurement solutions within the broadcast, telecommunication and defence RF environments.
Syndetic has designed a specialised antenna and receiver system for SIXARMS that enables them to measure all types of broadcast and telecommunication transmission systems. Their current measurement system (Franky), is a drone capable of measuring services within all broadcast bands (AM Radio, FM Radio, DVB-T/T2 and DAB+) as well as other telecommunication services found within the Medium Frequency (MF) – Ultra High Frequency (UHF) bands – 500 kHz – 6GHz.
The RF Measurement services SIXARMS offer include:
- Antenna Proof of Performance Measurements including Horizontal and Vertical Radiation Pattern (HRP, VRP) Reconstitution which includes Effective Radiated Power (ERP) Verification.
- Multiple Channel Power and Field Strength Measurements including SNR, MER, Pre and Post Viterbi BER, Constellation and Impulse Response.
- Electromagnetic Energy (EME) Compliancy and Environmental EME Compliancy Measurements.
- Receive Antenna Placement via live Signal Level Monitoring.
