FH-AV-BASIC, FlightHawk®

RF Aviation Cable & Antenna Analyzer Kit

Overview - Minimize AOG Downtime

Bird’s FH-AV-BASIC, FlightHawk® Aviation RF Test Kit provides all of the essential RF measurement capabilities required fro installing and maintaining aircraft antenna sysytems. Ideal for identifying failing RF cables, connectors, antennas, and more.

Product Features

  • Locate opens, shorts, improper crimps, bends, moisture, loose connectors, and defective antenna elements that lead to weak or intermittent Rf operations.
  • Utilize the FDR technology to perform a VSWR test by transmitting continuous RF sweep of cables & antenna at their operating frequencies.
  • Easy to use handheld tester, enabling the user to configure a Go/No-Go test by using the Pass/Fail, Limit Line, and Marker tools. This option can be used for a Measure/Match or Distance to Fault sweep.
  • Identifies issues easily from the equipment rack, eliminating the need to disassemble the airplane to test the RF system.

Critical Measurements
