The Model 1003 is a member of the Hunter family of products. The Hunter product line is a modular system using the latest in ultra-high speed interface technology. Multiple high-speed data converters are suitable for processing HF or IF data streams for communications (COMINT) or radar (ELINT) intelligence exploitation. Its built-in data capture features offer an ideal turnkey solution as well as a platform for developing and deploying custom FPGA processing IP. In addition to supporting PCI Express Gen3 as a native interface, the Hunter includes two industry standard VITA57.1 FMC processing sites for flexible modularity to serve any customer need. The modular design of the Hunter allows for an inexpensive solution to many of today’s SIGINT mission requirements.
In addition to its industry leading SIGINT capabilities, when loaded with the TSF5 Hornbow algorithm, the Hunter becomes an extraordinarily powerful co-processor, providing a wide range of capabilities to process in real time datasets and mathematically intensive applications that traditionally take hours to complete using standard microprocessor.
The Hunter 1003 includes the TSF5 Midband I/O Module in one of the Hunter’s FMC slots. The cardset is then capable of transferring raw data and simultaneously processing data from the two high-resolution ADC inputs. The 16-bit 250 MSPS ADCs are ideally suited for capturing 100 MHz of bandwidth centered at a 160 MHz IF, a much needed capability supporting the intelligence community mission. The 16-bit 1.5 GSPS DAC channels are suitable for playback of the same data captured using the onboard ADCs at a 160 MHz IF. Both dual channel capture as well as dual channel playback support coherent operation.
Expansion options include pairing with the TSF5 Ultra Wideband ADC Module for additional analog inputs capable of capturing greater than 500 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth. The dual DAC channels available with the Midband Module are also suitable for playback of Wideband DDC data captured using the Hunter 1000 with the Ultra Wideband ADC Module. The Midband ADC channels can also be populated with 14-bit 500 MSPS converters.
