Aeroflex Test Environment for Satellite Payloads
Satellite payload, panel, TVAC and antenna range testing.
Plainview, NY — Aeroflex' Synthetic Multifunction Adaptable Reconfigurable Test Environment — the SMART_E 5200 Series — is a new, truly synthetic Satellite Payload Test Environment that includes hardware, software, test practices and support required by customers for a complete test solution.

The 5200 is the newest member of the SMART_E 5000 Series, which is a complete, hybrid synthetic test environment. It provides standard and customizable test programs tailored to the specific problems of testing high performance payloads, which consist of multiple channels, each with up to hundreds of connections between the test system and payload under test.

The synthetic test environment is a highly integrated and reliable COTS-based solution with an extremely intuitive user interface. Completely new, yet already customer-proven, its entire measurement library and underlying measurement and calibration technology have been fully tested and validated with the STI1000C at major customer sites worldwide.

The core modules utilized in the SMART_E 5200 have been shipping in other SMART^E applications for approximately two years. Like the software and user interface, the core modules are production-grade and operationally proven in the field. When combined with proven accessories such as the Remote Calibration Unit (RCU), which allows TVAC testing of payloads with as many as 384 ports at an extended frequency of 40GHz, the system is the most cost-effective, most advanced solution available to industry.
