Agilent Technologies Inc. in Santa Clara, Calif., won a contract from the U.S. Army to deliver as many as 1,600 MXG microwave analog signal generators over seven years, as part of the Army's Test Equipment Modernization (TEMOD) program.
The TEMOD program was developed to replace obsolete general-purpose test equipment with state-of-the-art alternatives. Its mission is to improve the readiness of current and future Army systems, while reducing operating and support costs.
In 2008, the TEMOD program office began investigating options for replacing its inventory of old, obsolete microwave signal generators from several vendors with a single modern, supportable unit, reveals a representative. Following a 10-month technical evaluation, the Army selected Agilent's MXG microwave signal generator as the replacement.
Agilent will provide the Army with a special version of the N5183M MXG microwave analog signal generator tailored to its requirements.
