Virtual Warfighter Expo – Rohde & Schwarz Compact Direction Finder

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

I don’t get to write about electronic warfare equipment very often, but it’s always fun when I do.

The R&S DDF1555 Compact Direction Finder can be configured for spectrum search, signal monitoring and mobile as well as static direction finding. There is even an option for internal recording of signals.

It can be used with a variety of end user devices and depending on receivers installed, will receive signals from 9 kHz to 7.5 GHz and DF signals from 20 MHz to 6 GHz. Likewise, the system uses either the correlative interferometer or Watson-Watt method for DF solutions. There are a variety of antennas available for use, depending on the application.

The system weighs just shy of 9 lbs and utilizes a BB-2590 type battery which delivers up to 10 hours of DF operation.

Virtual Warfighter Expo – RightEye Vision System

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Those most amazing thing I’ve run across during the Virtual Warfighter Expo is the RightEye Vision System. They focus on human performance improvement based on dynamic vision skills.

The American Optometry Association (AOA), recommends evaluation for dynamic eye focusing, eye teaming, and eye movement, in addition to static visual acuity.

The RightEye Vision System is intended for recording, analyzing, and reporting eye movements in support of identifying visual tracking impairment.

They offer graphic, computer based testing which includes:

• Nystagmus
• Smooth Pursuit Tracking
• Saccades
• Fixations
• Multi-layer Reaction Time
• Visual Speed
• Visual Processing
• Reading Gaze Trails

Their device is an FDA certified Nystagmograph that tracks the amplitude and velocity of rapid, involuntary, and oscillatory ocular movements, and measures changes in the eye as the eye moves.

They evaluate vision to identify issues and then offer exercises to improve performance.

ADS Virtual Warfighter Expo

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

The ADS Virtual Warfighter Expo has kicked off and they are doing an amazing job. I’ve attended several virtual events over the past few months and they’ve been difficult to navigate and poorly populated with content. This is neither. There’s loads of great products and services and the site is a snap to get around. What’s more, both ADS and brand representatives are available to chat.

If you’re eligible to attend and haven’t signed up, do it.
