Rohde & Schwarz will launch its R&S EVSD1000 VHF/UHF nav/drone
analyzer at Airspace World 2023 in Geneva from March 8 to 10, 2023. The analyzer
provides highly accurate and efficient drone inspection of terrestrial navigation
and communications systems along with outstanding accuracy and the measurement repeatability

Geneva/Munich, March 7, 2023 -- Civil aviation requires accurate and reliable
navigation systems for optimizing air traffic control (ATC) and ensuring the essential
public safety while mitigating aircraft risks, delays and costs. Terrestrial air
navigation systems, such as landing systems or en-route navigation systems require
unique test and measurement capabilities.
R&S EVSD1000 VHF/UHF nav/drone analyzer is a signal level and modulation
analyzer for medium-sized drones. It is the only instrument that combines measurements
of instrument landing systems (ILS), ground-based augmentation systems (GBAS) and
VHF omnirange (VOR) ground stations in a single box. The mechanical and electrical
design is optimized for drone based, real-time measurements of terrestrial navigation
systems with up to 100 measurement data sets per second.
The analyzer provides high-precision signal analysis in the frequency range from
70 MHz to 410 MHz, a critical requirement for drone based terrestrial
navigation signal measurement systems. This also includes the needed measurement
repeatability to ensure that results from drone measurements can be compared to
flight and to ground inspections in line with ICAO standards.
The analyzer is ideal for drone-based ground station testing in the perimeter
of an airport. At 1.5 kg, the instrument’s weight allows usage of a medium-sized
drone to perform measurements on ILS/VOR systems in line with the ICAO standards.
Customer benefits include reduced runway blocking times compared to conventional
methods (manual measurements, mast measurements), significantly reducing costs while
providing the necessary measurement repeatability, measurement precision and GNSS
time and location stamps. While streaming measurement data during a drone flight
via the data link to a PC on the ground, the analyzer can buffer this data internally
to ensure that no results are lost if the data link is lost. This ensures gapless
measurements and easy reporting.
With the theme "Trusted – Trendsetting – Sustainable," Rohde & Schwarz is
presenting the complete CERTIUM portfolio and further innovative solutions at Airspace
World 2023 at the Palexpo Exhibition Centre in Geneva, Switzerland, booth E13, from
March 8 to 10.
