Decimator Spectrum Analyzers

Decimator D4

Calian, Advanced Technologies Decimator Spectrum Analyzer remotely monitors communication signals anywhere RF signal monitoring is required.  When used standalone or integrated into your solution, Decimator is ideally suited for the measurement of communications and broadcast carriers.

With a frequency range of 5 MHz to 3 GHz, the Decimator D3 provides accurate and fast measurements at a compelling cost.

Our new Decimator D4 Spectrum & Signal Analyzer product features advanced spectrum monitoring and signal analysis.  Decimator D4 has an increased frequency range of 5 MHz to 6.5 GHz and also includes digital demodulation capabilities.

Decimator Features:

  • Available in 3 form factors – PCIe card, portable and multi-port
  • Powerful & easy to use with a standard internet connection, no training required
  • Built-in Cross-pol and Carrier Monitoring applications
  • CarrierWatch add-ons provide the ability to view multiple carriers in a single window & more

Our Remote Management Protocol can be integrated into your network, RF system/unit, or RF monitoring/measurement system.

Satellite Communication Products

Calian, Advanced Technologies line of DVB-S/S2/S2X satellite modulators has been deployed around the world in DTH satellite broadcast and satellite newsgathering applications.  Our modulators have a flexible FPGA-based design that can be leveraged to deliver custom modulators for non-standard encoding and modulation types.  We also offer private labelling for OEM products.

SED Satellite Modulators









Our Hercules & Defender multi-channel modulators are designed to generate multiple channels out of a single one rack-mount unit (1RU) chassis. The small form factor provides significant savings in capital costs, reduced operating expenses & other benefits.

The Gemini modulator provides DVB-S/S2/S2X, DSNG and Turbo functionality and includes ASI and IP inputs and both IF and L-band outputs.

Our Itus modulator redundancy switch provides 1:1 modulator L-band redundancy switching for our modulator products.  Itus includes our patented Intelligent Switching mode functionality.

The narrow-band SDTS modulator supports the Inmarsat SES28B standard, while our Beacon Generator provides an L-band output that can be frequency converted to the band you need for your beacon signal.
