WE MAKE THE MOST OF DIGITAL AND RF TECHNOLOGIES

About Us

Our Business

tss

For more than 40 years, SYNOPSIS Corporation Group has been designing solutions for testing Electronic Warfare and Radar Systems from customer’s requirements, based on mature technological bricks. SYNOPSIS solutions make the most of digital and RF domains and aim at simulating high-fidelity signals and radar echoes as realistic as SYNOPSIS addresses both Military and Civil applications. SYNOPSIS market is worldwide and is addressed either directly or through representatives depending on the country. SYNOPSIS has prestigious references on both its domestic market and abroad.

Our solutions

SYNOPSIS Corporation Group specializes in the design and manufacture of simulation products for testing EW, RADAR and TELECOM systems. Our solutions are used in Hardware In the Loop(HIL) applications in both open-loop and closed-loop configurations and in both injection and radiation (Over The Air (OTA)) modes. Our solutions offer both pre-computed & replay and real-time types of simulation.

SYNOPSIS Corporation Group’s simulators line of products is based on a highly evolved architecture of software, high-speed digital processors, and RF assemblies used to simulate analog or digital modulation signals in complex electromagnetic environment.

Simulators designed by Synopsis Corporation Group from customer’s requirements are used to generate digital signals for injection into Radar, EW, ELINT or COMINT receivers or other digital networks. Low level RF signals, including their multi-port direction finding antenna systems (Amplitude, Phase, Time delay, Doppler, Antenna Beam Forming Unit), can also be generated for both injection and radiation Over The Air (OTA) modes. SYNOPSIS Corporation Group’s solutions are also used for Electronic Attack simulation (ECM) or Electronic Protection Measures (ECCM) and for Jamming Techniques effectiveness evaluation.

Finally, SYNOPSIS Corporation Group’s solutions for generating high-fidelity radar echoes can also be used to test or evaluate radar sensors considered in the automotive domain for ADAS or autonomous driving systems.

SYNOPSIS Corporation Group’s simulators line of products makes maximum use of building blocks and COTS elements, such as desktop and industrial computers or work stations in PCI, Compact PCI, VME, PCI Express formats or Open VPX, as well as DSP & FPGA technologies which offer the re-programmability, modularity and expandability suited for Research, Development, Test, Evaluation and training environments.
