IT-8000 trainer introduces students to the fundamental principles of microwave communications through a wide range of practical activities. The Computer-Assisted Microwave Training System is a complete, state-of-the-art training program that includes data acquisition and instrumentation. It is designed for hands on training and demonstration of common waveguide configurations. This training system allows the user to investigate the principles of microwave transmission systems such as those used in radar and communications links. IT-8000 uses waveguide components to illustrate the essential elements within this field of study. The microwave devices and components are fabricated from silver plated brass to standard X-band waveguide dimensions.
