BRAT Option 535

SATCOM Test System

Description

The BRAT Option 535 is an option to the BRAT Test System utilizing Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) equipment. The system is used to augment the existing BRAT capabilities to test Satellite Communications (SATCOM) equipment. In addition, the BRAT Option 535 Test System will test communication equipment at various IF frequencies in the UHF, L, X, and Ku bands of operation.

System capabilities include:

  • Modulation: QPSK, OQPSK, BPSK
  • Encryption: Reed Solomon, Viterbi, COMSEC (KYK-13, CYZ-10)
  • Bit Rates: Up to 55 Mbps or up to 330 Mbps Composite Rate
  • Measurement of 70 MHz IF, 140 MHz IF, 1700 MHz IF
  • Simulation of 70 MHz IF, 140 MHz IF, 1700 MHz IF
  • Waveguide pressurization and leak detection
