MicroScan® Miniaturized SDR Transceivers


MicroScans are 70-6000 MHz, miniaturized, ruggedized, low SWaP SDR Transceivers. They can be programmed for customized COMMS, Cyber-EW, SIGINT, DF, Covert Collection, and varieties of Commercial Wireless applications where small size and application flexibility are important. Because of their small size they are ideal for manpacks, inside UAV pods, or even embedded inside 3rd party communications systems or antennas. Leave-behind versions optional (please ask the Factory for details). They are completely software-defined for a customer's wireless applications. The unit comes with in-built banks of RF Filters: 7 fixed + 2 tunable suboctave bandpass filters for RX, and 9 fixed suboctave lowpass filters for TX. The compact enclosure is fully ruggedized and operational from -40 °C to +75 °C. Spectranetix offers a Development Kit and Design Support Contracts so that Primes, Commercial Industry Partners, VARs, and Developers can test their custom code and get their Programs and Products off the ground very quickly.
