Portable RF Target Simulator

Manufacturer: NSI-MI Technologies
Product Number: FF-PTS

Product Description

The evaluation of RF Sensors often requires a test capability where various RF scenes are presented to the Unit Under Test (UUT). These scenes may need to be dynamic, represent multiple targets and/or decoys, emulate dynamic motion, and simulate real world RF environmental conditions. An RF Target Simulator can be employed to perform these functions. The total test system is usually called Hardware in the Loop (HWTL) involving the sensor mounted on a Flight Motion Simulator (FMS), the RF Target Simulator presenting the RF Scene, and a Simulation Computer that dynamically commands everything in real time.

NSI-MI Technologies has designed and delivered several versions of Target Simulators as turnkey systems. The systems accept real-time commands from the customer’s simulation computer to dynamically create the desired target motion with desired angle of arrival accuracy. Our systems engineering expertise has allowed us to scale and tailor the system to meet the unique needs of each

Key Specification

  • Compact Range – Moving Reflector
  • Portable Compact Range to interface with flight motion simulator (FMS)
  • The hexapod provides 6 degrees of dynamic motion for the reflector creating target motion
  • Reflector moves to create target signals from various angles of arrival
  • Oversized test zone always covers required test zone


  • A portable anechoic compact range creates very high dynamic target motion by mechanically moving the compact range reflector, thereby changing the angle of arrival of the plane wave presented to the UUT. The mobile nature of the range allows the customer mate it with the UUT on an FMS when they want to test and to detach and roll away the chamber when they want to use the test chamber for purposes other than RF testing.
