Paper Abstract

Bragg cell spectrum analysers provide interception of simultaneous RF Si gnals over wide instantaneous bandwidths with 100% intercept probability. These properties make them attractive candidates for EW applications. Major issues currently being addressed by Marconi include dynamic range for single and multiple tones, miniaturisation and ruggedisation to meet stringent military specifications. This paper discusses these aspects with respect to both the power spectrum analyser (PSA) and the interferometric spectrum analyser (ISA). The discussion is illustrated by reference to Marconi 's range of Bragg cell receivers.
