Harrow, UK, 18th May 2017: The new Aerospace and Defence Tool Box from Microlease streamlines access to specially selected sets of equipment and test gear, to minimise risks for manufacturers on long term projects and to help them respond quickly to win market opportunities.
The Microlease Aerospace and Defence Tool Box is configured by specialists experienced in working with aerospace and defence manufacturers, and support roles across the spectrum of activities including producing, commissioning or repairing equipment such as radar, microwave communication, mobile radio, satellite testing and electronic security systems. They can offer a time-saving and cost-effective solution, particularly for projects (or programs) needing specialised, high-performance tools for time limited needs which can last from a few months to multiple years.
The wide range of equipment available includes analysers, signal generators and other instruments that are proven and popular within aerospace and defence industries, such as:
Keysight N9040B high-end spectrum analyser up to 50GHz: the reference analyser for the aerospace industry, featured for detailed analysis of high frequencies and capturing intermittent or spurious signals
Rohde & Schwarz FSH-18 portable spectrum analyser for field usage, with features such as interference hunting, geotagging and antenna field-strength measurement in addition to spectrum analysis, vector network analysis and cable and antenna analysis
Keysight N5225A high-end network analyser up to 50GHz, with advanced measurement applications and built-in pulse modulators and pulse generators
Anritsu S820D portable 20GHz network analyser for field engineers working with microwave communication systems, capable of maintaining measurement accuracy in challenging RF environments, and featuring data-analysis and reporting tools
Keysight E8257D signal generator, which offers extremely high accuracy, features for testing high-power devices, and extremely low phase noise for Doppler radar, ADC and receiver-blocking tests
Tektronix AWG70002 waveform generator with support for direct generation of wideband signals up to 20GHz
Mobile radio test gear including Viavi JD745 cell advisor and base station tester with power, interference and system-performance analysis
A large range of field instruments including portable transmission and mobile radio testers such as the Keysight Fieldfox for Spectrum and Network Analysis (up to 50GHz)
The rich selection also includes highly regarded power supplies, noise generators, oscilloscopes, multimeters, data-acquisition instruments, counters, semiconductor parametric analysers, impedance analysers, function/pulse generators, logic analysers, and environmental test equipment.
“Manufacturers typically have to manage their cost of test across peaks and troughs to deliver within agreed timeframes” said George Acris, Marketing Director, Microlease. “Our new Aerospace and Defence Tool Box, configured by our in-house technical experts, simplifies procurement of the right equipment, and can satisfy time-limited requirements for periods of a few months up to multiple years, cost-effectively and with full support. These are high-quality, reliable tools, fully maintained and calibrated, delivered quickly, enabling our customers to complete time-critical projects with cost- control and flexibility to adapt during the project.”
The new Aerospace and Defence Tool Box extends Microlease’s successful concept, which gathers all the equipment engineers need to meet the demands of specific industries into a single, comprehensive package. Alternative Tool Box options currently available from Microlease support the Automotive, Semiconductor and Railway industries, and more Tool Boxes for other sectors will be introduced in the future.
