Introducing ALT-9000 Radio Altimeter Test Set and Altitude Simulator!

The only flight line capable test set for checking the entire RADALT system for all RADALT types. Using true RF Time Delay and Path Loss models, the ALT-9000 can test any format of radio altimeter.

Product Features

  • Fiber optic delay line based test set supports all formats of radio altimeters
  • Portable ruggedized enclosure for flight line or benchtop use
  • Battery operated
  • Simulates static altitudes from 0* ft. to 10,000 ft. in 10 ft. steps (*minimum simulated altitude dependent upon AID and test cable length)
  • +20 dB of power level offset from nominal loop loss value
  • Touch-screen operation 
  • Direct-connect to UUT T/R or installed system via antenna couplers

Quickly test or troubleshoot all types of radio altimeter test systems.

The ALT-9000 comes with everything needed for confirming the installation and performance of:

  • CARA
  • LPI 
  • FMCW
  • Pulse
  • Next-Gen Radios

The ALT-9000 makes testing RADALT anomalies fast, and the large touch screen makes setting up and replicating multi-leg scenarios up to 10,000 feet easy. Most importantly, technicians can isolate faulty components with a variety of test applications, including:

  • TX Power
  • TX Frequency
  • FM Deviation
  • Sweep Rate
  • Pulse Width
  • PRF
