Whether you are designing battlefield radio hardware or software, building a military IoT device with an RF module, buying or evaluating devices, or developing network applications that use radios, you are probably grappling with the real-world challenges of successfully getting RF signals from point A to point B.

Testing radio systems at a controlled range may be the most realistic methodology, but it has many challenges. Range testing can only replicate a small subset of the variables of a scenario, and it is difficult to replicate the congested and contested environments that mirror the tactical edge. It can also be expensive to implement, and scheduling restrictions often adversely impact the ability to debug and iterate designs.

The connected battlefield requires a new level of testing and assurance that depends on close collaboration between government defense agencies and private enterprise.

Enter Spirent Communications. Long considered the foremost experts on the technical challenges that military radio system designers, integrators and buyers face, our partners at Spirent have developed a state-of-the-art tool for RF channel emulation. Known as the Vertex, it models real-world signal impairments and worst-case scenarios for fast and accurate testing, allowing users to bring new RF systems online quickly and at a lower cost than previously imaginable.

As experts in product application and support, Dualos is here to arm you with the tools and knowledge necessary to make well-informed decisions.
