The DRS9300X-MB Recorder is designed to record two RF signals (typically right-hand polarization and left-hand polarization) directly from the multi-coupler (between the antenna and receiver). The recorder provides up to 200MHz of signal BW for each channel (signals sampled at 500MSPS). The DRS9300X employs a modular design such that the recorder can be user-configured for different RF bands by swapping in/out the appropriate RF Board Sets (interface boards). Currently, we have an S Band, two L Band board sets, and, three C Band board sets. Support for other bands is always considered upon request.
One of the key reasons for using the 9300X-MB RF recorder is to capture an entire band (P, L, C, or S). In the S band case, that’s 200 MHz; in the L band case, it’s 100MHz. Typically, there are multiple transmitters in the band so this is a great way to capture everything transmitted on the range during missions.
