A CORE APPLICATIONS OF OUR TECHNOLOGY (AND ONE THAT OUR SYSTEM DOES INCREDIBLY WELL) IS RADIO FREQUENCY SPECTRUM ANALYSIS. THE S2-EBAC SYSTEM ACCEPTS RAW RADIO FREQUENCY SIGNALS FROM AN EXTREME-BANDWIDTH rf ANTENNA.  tHESE SIGNALS ARE THEN UP-CONVERTED TO AN OPTICAL CARRIER AND PROCESSED THROUGH proprietary S2 CRYSTAL MATERIALS to PROVIDE AMPLITUDE AND FREQUENCY INFORMATION. THIS aLLOWS USERs TO ACHIEVE 100% PROBABILITY-OF-INTERCEPT SPECTRAL AWARENESS WITH HIGH FIDELITY IN AN UNPREDICTABLE AND DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT. 

A TRADITIONAL SWEPT/STEP LOCAL OSCILLATOR, NARROW BANDWIDTH(110MHZ) SPECTRUM ANALYZER WILL CAPTURE <1% OF THE SPECTRUM.  IMAGINE THE CAPABILITY TO MEASURE THE ENTIRE ELECTROMAGNETIC SPECTRUM, THOUSANDS OF TIMES PER SECOND.

SPECTRUM ANALYSIS SYSTEM OVERVIEW

a VIDEO SHOWCASING 20 GHZ INSTANTANEOUS BANDWIDTH RF SPECTRUM ANALYSIS.  this data was created in our lab using 11 different transmitters to simulate a rich, rf environment.  The sources included RF signal generators, arbitrary waveform generators on a hopping local oscillator, wifi & bluetooth transmissions, microwave ovens, and wireless phones.  

one undeniable benefit of the ebac is 100% Probability of intercept with <1Mhz resolution bandwidth over the full instantaneous bandwidth, whether it's 1 ghz, 10 ghz, 20 ghz, 40 ghz, etc.   the image Below shows a capture of a gsm cell call in the 1800 mhz band.
