DME Corp. selects Agilent N6700 power systems for device that tests military radios in the field

SANTA CLARA, Calif., 23 March 2007. Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that defense electronics firm DME Corp. is incorporating Agilent N6700 low-profile modular power systems in its Advanced Tactical Agile Communications Test Set, or ATACTS, for testing military radios in the field. Military field technicians use the ATACTS system to determine whether a radio is usable or needs to be sent back to the depot for repair.

Military field technicians use the ATACTS system to determine whether a radio is usable or needs to be sent back to the depot for repair.

ATACTS combines the operations of 12 to 16 virtual test instruments into a single unit. Technicians plug the radio-under-test into ATACTS, which puts it through a series of predefined tests.

DME engineers wanted a power supply that was 1U to 2U high and had three to five programmable outputs.

The Agilent N6700 low-profile modular power system is designed to simplify test-system assembly, programming, debugging, and operation.
