Applications: Flight Test Ground Station Components and Systems

Flight test ground stations are presented with the most demanding requirements for signal acquisition and processing. The signal source emanating from an aircraft is in constant flux. The aircraft can be on the ground, in the air at various attitudes, altitudes and distances from the receiving antennas.

GDP provides equipment that overcomes and mitigates the perturbations that are presented by the conditions presented by the flight test environment. These high quality products capture and reproduce the needed signals under the most stressful conditions. Where appropriate, signals from multiple antennas are sampled and the best signal information is presented to the end-product processing equipment. Our Best Source Selectors can even select the best bits to combine from multiple sources without interruption of the output stream.

Equipment available from GDP for Flight Test Ground Stations includes:
