Measuring Radar Cross Section with Handheld VNAs

Radar cross section (RCS) is the measure of an object's ability to reflect radar signals in the direction of the radar receiver, i.e. it is the measure of the ratio of backscatter per steradian (unit solid angle) in the direction of the target radar to the power density intercepted by the target. RCS measurements help ensure the design of commercial and military aircraft and radar systems, as well as to maintain their performance once they are deployed.

How can I tell what firmware changes/improvements have made to my instrument?

Go to www.anritsu.com, type in your model numberin the “search box” press enter, click on the link that represents yourinstrument, then click on the “Library” tab, go to “Driver, Software Downloads”and click “Firmware update for XXXX (your model)” click where you see “ReleaseHistory” and the improvements/changes will be listed by the option.

I have an MS2713E, how can I tell what version of firmware is installed?

Press “Shift”, “System (#8 key)”, “Status” and look at“Package Version”.

How long will Anritsu “fully” support the equipment after it has been discontinued?

We will support the equipment 7 years after its discontinuance date.   Pleasecall 800-Anritsu (267-4878) for that information.

We have ordered the new MT8820T. On this model the GPS is standard with its antenna. Will the new GPS antenna 2000-1760 work on any other products?

Yes. As long as option 31 (GPS receiver), it will work on the following:S331E, S332E, S361E, S362E, S412E, MS2711E, MS2712E, MS2713E, MS2720T, MT8212E, MT8213E, MT8221B, MT8222B, MT8220T, MS2024B, MS2025B, MS2026C, MS2027C, MS2028C, MS2034B, MS2035B, MS2036C, MS2037C, MS2038C, MW82119A.

What is the preferred method for updating firmware for Anritsu Handheld RF tools such as the Site Master, Cell Master, VNA Master, LMR Master, Spectrum Master, or BTS Master?

Firmware updates are located under the library tab on the web page of each Anritsu handheld instrument. The installation process will require the use of an USB Memory Stick. Instructions and prompts will appear when the update is executed on your computer.   Older insturments, ones that do not have a firmware update listed in their library tab, can be updated using Anritsu's Master Software Tools. In this case, the preferred media is Ethernet if they have an Ethernet interface, or serial if they do not.  The MS2721B, MS2723B, MS2724B, MT8222A, and MS2026A are transition instruments. If these instruments have firmware created before August of 2009, Master Software Tools and an Ethernet connection will be requried to update their firmware. Once updated, future updates can be done by the USB Memory Stick method, using firmware downloaded from the instrument's web page.

I have a S412E and have saved my cable and antenna measurements. However, they only save in the .MNA format. What software tools can I use to manipulate them?

Yes. Line Sweep Tools supports .MNA files. You can add markers and limit lines. Please download Line Sweep Tools at this link: http://www.anritsu.com/en-US/Products-Solutions/Instructional/Line-Sweep-Tools.aspx

How much does it cost for Repair and/or Calibration?

Look on the tool bar of  this website and hover your mouse over the “Services & Support” words on the toolbar and click on “Repair and Calibration”. Next, click on “Repair and Calibration Pricing”. Enter your model number. The result will show your model number as a hyper link (in blue). Click on it to see the pricing.

We have OSLN50-1 and OSLN50 standards for our handhelds. How do we know what is loaded into the VNA masters or other handhelds with vna capability?

  The 18GHz OSLN50, OSLNF50, OSLK50, and OSLKF50 cal kits are tuned to have a capacitance value of 0. That is why the VNA Master “VNA Mode” uses a C=0 setting for those cal kits. The BTS Master VNA app (and the older “A” series VNA Master) are setup to use the older OSL 4GHz and 6GHz cal kits, which had a different capacitance value (not necessarily 0). In reality, when you are only sweeping to 4GHz  or even to 6GHz, the capacitance values will not make a noticeable difference.

Can I preset markers 5 and 6 for marker between peak or valley on Line Sweep Tools?

This is not recommended if you plan to use the marker between two markers function. The reason being is that these values will vary from sweep to sweep. If you are marker 5 and 6 as part of your preset, you will not be able to re-adjust them for marker between two markers (peak or valley). However, if you are setting them for a specific frequency then you need to manually enter a frequency in the “FREQ (MHZ) column.    Marker 5 is used to set the marker between Marker 1 and 2, Peak or Valley. Marker 6 is used to set the marker between Marker 3 and 4, Peak or Valley.

Can you tell me the difference between the 2000-767-R and the 2000-1618-R?

The only difference is the frequency range. The 2000-767 is DC to 4 GHz and the 2000-1618-R is DC to 6 GHz. There is also a female 7/16 Open/Short/Load part number 2000-768-R and 2000-1619-R. 2000-768-R frequency range is DC to 4GHz and 2000-1619-R is DC to 6GHz.

How do I copy files from my internal memory to my USB memory stick?

  The steps below detail copying a file from internal memory to an external flash drive.   NOTE: Select the files to copy in the top window and the location for the files to be copied to in the bottom window.   Insert a USB drive into either USB Type A port of the Site Master.   From the File main (shift/file (#7 key)) menu, press the “Copy (soft key)” submenu key.

How do I add options to my S331D Site Master?

Some options for the S331D Site Master require additional hardware or calibration factors to be loaded into the unit so the work needs to be done in either an Anritsu service center or at the Morgan Hill, CA facility.  For other options, these can be added via a license file and instructions on how to complete this process are shown below:    Generating an Instrument Config File and Installing A New License File To automatically queue the Anritsu website for updates, you must configure the Master Software Tools (MST) Internet Settings. 1. Run the MST program. 2. Connect to the instrument. 3. Generate a Config File a. Pull down the Sync menu and highlight Device Status and Options to open the submenu.   Get Options Highlighted (config file)   b. Click Get Options (Config File). The Save Config File window opens.     c. Go to the folder where the license file was previously stored. d. Highlight the file and press the Open button. The filename format is model-spaceserialnumber.license. e. MST will install the new license into the instrument. After the installation is complete, a dialog appears.   “Instrument options successfully upgraded. Cycle power on the instrument to begin using the new features”   f. Follow the instruction. g. Verify the new option(s) are listed on the boot up screen.
