Frequency Electronics, Inc. Announces FEI-Elcom Tech, Inc. New Electronic Warfare Product Line

MITCHEL FIELD, N.Y., Aug. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frequency Electronics, Inc. (“FEI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ-FEIM) announced today that FEI-Elcom Tech, Inc., (Elcom), a subsidiary of Frequency Electronics, Inc., is introducing its new EW series VPXTR6000 next-generation wideband microwave quad-channel synthesized transceivers and VPXST6000 tuners applicable for EW/ECM/EP/SIGINT and jammer open architecture (OSA) VPX Systems.

Elcom transceivers and tuners feature up to 2GHz real-time bandwidth and ultra-fast, sub-microsecond tuning speeds. The fast switching speed and real-time bandwidth provide capability to address current and future EW threats.

VPXTR6000 standard frequency ranges include 1-18GHz and 6-18GHz. Up to 67 GHz is available on special order. The unit is configurable as either a two-channel synthesized up-down converter or a four-channel synthesized down-converter.

Innovative microwave front-end design delivers low noise figure/high dynamic range performance, enabling detection of signals in high RF pulse density environments, as well as stand-off interception of low-level emitters in the presence of jamming.

VPXTR6000 incorporates Elcom’s dual DDS/analog synthesizer architecture, providing fast frequency switching and lower phase noise compared to PLL based architectures. Phase coherent switching capability can also be used to simulate multiple emitters with one synthesizer.

A low g-sensitive oven controlled quartz crystal oscillator (OCXO) option provides a vibration compensated low phase noise 100MHz frequency output that can be integrated into the VPX chassis for reference signal distribution to multiple VPX modules over a VITA-67 coaxial backplane. The patented design enables stable quartz crystal reference for operation on high dynamic platforms such as aircraft, UAVs and other mobile platforms.

VPXTR6000 can be configured as VPX or as stand-alone, ruggedized, hermetically sealed module.
