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.

 MOVE THE SLIDER ON THE 24 SECOND, 20GHZ IMAGE BELOW TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT YOU WILL SEE WITH A TRADITIONAL SPECTRUM ANALYZER and THE GAME CHANGING S2 SPECTRUM ANALYZER.

SPECTRUM ANALYSIS SYSTEM OVERVIEW

Click on the video below to see our latest results showcasing 35 GHz IBW spectrum analysis over the full W-Band (75 - 110 GHz)!  This data was created using 2 separate RF signal generators, and x6 frequency multipliers in order to achieve the desired W-Band frequency output.  (Top Graph) Real-time spectrum analysis with 10 seconds of persistence.  (Bottom Graph) Time/Frequency waterfall plot with ~5 second window. 

Full W-Band (75 - 110 GHz) Spectrum Analysis showing true instantaneous bandwidth capabilities (35 GHz) of the S2 EBAC Spec-An system.

The video below demonstrates 20 GHz IBW between 0.1 - 20 GHz frequency range.  This data was created in our lab using 2 different transmitters to simulate a rich,
RF environment.

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.
