The spectrum analyzer functionality of both the R&S ZNL and the R&S FPL1000 includes a wide range of spectral measurements such as channel power, adjacent-channel leakage ratio (ACLR), signal-to-noise ratio, spurious, harmonic distortions, third-order intercept point (TOI) and AM modulation depth.
Brian insisted the ILS started outside of the published glideslope intercept point, and no S-turns or 360s were allowed.
At that point, the two F-16s break out of their loiter patterns to fly in a straight line south, quite certainly under Turkish ground control because they clearly are not hunting for the Su-24s and following a curved path, they're heading straight for an intercept point that apparently ground control has provided them.
John said: "That instruction was so specific that the intercept point was at the end of the Dundonald runway, where Hess was heading.
BGA825L6S offers an optimized out-of-band input intercept point 3rd order (IIP3 oob) of +8 dBm, which dramatically improves sensitivity compared to other solutions available in the market today.
Midcourse interceptors launched at a predicted intercept point determined before the maneuver have limited flexibility to divert once their boost phase has ended.
It features the industry's best third-order intercept point at +24 dBm with an absolute amplitude accuracy of +/- 0.
A final approach fix (FAF) and/or a glideslope intercept point define the final approach segment depicted in the profile view on the approach plate.
It features a low phase noise of -129 dBc/Hz at a 10-kHz offset at 800 MHz, an average noise level of -165 dBm/Hz, a third-order intercept point of +24 dBm, and amplitude accuracy of [+ or -]0.
The new VSA features low phase noise of -129 dBc/Hx at a 10 kHz offset at 800 MHz, an average noise level of-165 dBm/Hz, a third-order intercept point of +24 dBm and absolute amplitude accuracy of [+ or -]0.
In order to do that, we'd have to make a wide arc through the thick brush as quickly as possible and get to the intercept point within a matter of minutes.
