Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) has developed a more capable version of its multi-channel electronic intelligence (ELINT) processor and launched it at the 2019 Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition (DSEI 2019) in London from 10 to 13 September.
The new wideband processing unit (WPU) 2000 has a 2 GHz instantaneous real time bandwidth, a notable improvement on its predecessor, the WPU 500, which has a 500 MHz bandwidth. The ELINT system collects, processes, and analyses modern low power, low probability of intercept (LPI) radar signals as well as wideband, multi-radio frequency (RF), high duty cycle radar emissions, such as those that are produced by an active electronically scanned array (AESA).
