Leverage Opportunities

Open doors to difficult accounts and close deals on high-dollar NI hardware with Spectra Lab.

While our focus is providing our existing Spectrum Defender® product line and software codebase to the military and aerospace markets, we recognize the value in serving potential customers who are pushing the performance boundaries of RF technology in commercial and research applications.

We can also engage opportunities that require a customized RF solution in order to penetrate a key account and build brand reputation for Spectrum Defender.

If your customer doesn’t have LabVIEW expertise or programming resources, or is on a tight timeline with low risk-tolerance, Spectrum Defender provides turnkey solutions that can challenge Keysight/R&S plug-and-play (turnkey) user experience often found in traditional mil-aero accounts.

System Design & Integration

Spectrum Defender has been fully tested and proven, runs on most NI PXI VSA/VSG hardware, and is deliverable in both modular and customized configurations to meet your specific requirements. Spectrum Defender can be delivered as a turnkey system with an executable file, or as a programmable API where the end-user integrates the Spectrum Defender platform into their own top-level software or test executive. Our Standard (SD) systems come with fixed specifications and are immediately available. Build-to-Order (BTO) systems allow for minor variances to the fixed specifications and are readily available in 2-4 weeks. Custom (CST) systems are available to meet customer-defined specifications on a project-specific delivery schedule.


The Spectrum Defender software platform serves as an Operating System and Unified Graphical User Interface (GUI) for underlying PXI RF hardware instrumentation and processing subsystems. This mature, scalable software platform configures and controls instrument hardware, synchronizes multiple RF channels, applies inter-channel phase alignment offsets, supervises high-speed data movement channels, controls FPGA processors, and manages storage systems. Our software has been on the leading edge for over 10 years and continues to evolve.


System-level Spectrum Defender marketing materials and spec sheets will ensure you have the detailed information you need at your fingertips. Our extensive system documentation is designed to allow the end user to completely disassemble, reassemble, service, and operate every aspect of the delivered product.
