Plath Signal Products new SIR 2115 receiver just set a new standard for application configurability and integration use cases

Hamburg, Germany, January 25 2022 – PLATH Signal Products GmbH & Co. KG today announces a significant upgrade to its SIR 2115 receiver. The SIR 2115 is already the markets pre-eminent flexibly configurable wideband monitoring receiver with its VLF thru UHF RF spectrum coverage, extremely high speed 100 GHz/sec scan and configurable narrowband receiver capabilities. But the best just got better:

  • RF coverage extension to 6 Ghz giving it VLF thru SHF RF spectrum coverage
  • New bandwidth selection set for the wideband DDCs of 1.25/2.5/5/10/20 MHz
  • A 15 second memory buffer for its 20 narrowband DDCs

The SIR 2115 now augments its 80 MHz coherent bandwidth with its 4 x 20 MHz wideband DDCs, with the addition of selectable smaller wideband DDCs. Using these gives operators and system integrators the ability to improve signal to noise ratio, meaning operators and system integrations are far more likely to be able to extract signals-of-interest from noisy background RF spectrums.

The new memory buffer for the 20 narrowband DDCs means you’ll never miss a signal, especially at the pre-amble of a signal, which can be the most important information sought. For system integrators this can mean the receiver may replace externally provisioned hardware and software solutions for data caching, cutting down space, power and cost.

These upgrades mean the SIR 2115 has set a new market standard for modularity, configurability and flexibility giving system integrators the opportunity to build once, deploy many across a wide spectrum of COMINT applications, manually controlled and in automated systems.

Dr. Ronald Meixner, CEO of PLATH Signal Products, says “Modularity objectives are driving configurability needs as systems of systems need to be more widely adaptable to application scenarios. The SIR 2115 sets a new standard for application-centric configurability, which empowers system integrators to cost effectively help their customers deploy a single system with a widely adaptable set of scenario capabilities.”
