SMR-3822A Advanced Wideband Microwave Search Receiver

SMR-3822A Advanced Wideband Microwave Search Receiver

The SMR-3822A Receiver, a member of the SMR-3000 family of high-performance synthesized microwave receivers, covers 0.1 to 20GHz. Millimeter wave frequency extension is achievable using an FE-3820. An internal Spectrum Display Generator (SDG) generates data that can be used to develop RF sweep and IF pan spectrum displays on a remote workstation or laptop. The receiver provides simultaneous wideband IF outputs at 1GHz (500MHz bandwidth) and 160MHz (100MHz bandwidth) in addition to a post-filtered 160MHz IF output. All IF outputs have a noninverted spectrum; in addition, there is operator-selectable inversion of the IF up to 20GHz tuned frequency.

Enhanced GUI


  • Full Band RF Sweep Spectrum Display

  • IF Pan Displays Maximum Span of 100MHz

  • Zero Span Mode

  • 2D or 3D Waterfall Display in RF Sweep or IF Pan Modes
  • Snapshot Feature

The enhanced GUI for search receivers allows the operator to remotely control an SMR-3822A microwave receiving system. This GUI has similar display capabilities as the SMR-3822 GUI shown on the previous page. Six-trace, RF sweep, and IF pan displays are available.

The enhanced features include a 25-channel step and dwell function and an improved parameter set manager for storage and recall of preset receiver operating functions. Also included are updated 2D and 3D waterfall displays.
