Enigma super wideband (downlink) 32 x 32


  • Description

    The Enigma L-band to S-band is a distributive (full fan-out) Matrix. The NGM-52 covers 520-3150MHz.

    The Enigma Matrix is housed in a 6U 19" rack enclosure and has a module capacity of 32 inputs x 32 outputs and can be part populated to any size.

    A variety of impedances and connector types are available.

  • Benefits

    Key benefits: 

    - NGM-52 is wide band, covering 520-3150 MHz operating frequency.

    Inputs and outputs can be expanded in single and dual increments.

    - Continuous on-board monitoring and reporting of RF card amplifier status, CPU and PSU status and HMI communications.

    - Reliability in service with hot-swappable active components.

    - All settings are retained after a communications/power failure.

    - Touchscreen and VGA display with remote connection via RS232/485 serial and RJ45 Ethernet ports.

    - Web Browser Interface is provided as standard with the Enigma Matrix.

  • Application

    Typical Applications

    - Suited for earth observation downlink applications.

    - Satellite communications applications in teleports, and ground stations.

    - Signal monitoring of satellite traffic.

    - Remote controlled unmanned satcom sites.

    - Test environment applications such as lab resource testing, net mobility testing & large scale wireless testing. 

  • Matrix Types

    Non-blocking: this means any input can be routed to any output.

    Full Fan-out Matrix (or fully distributive or splitting matrix): any input can be routed to any output. One input can be routed to many outputs. Each output can only have one input. Tends to be more RX.

    In general our solid state (L-band) matrices are non-blocking.

  • Matrix Sizes

    The Enigma Matrix has a full capacity of 32 inputs x 32 outputs, but can be supplied part-populated in single input / output increments - such as 15x25 or 32x16.  It can then be hot expanded to 32x32.  Larger systems can be made using multiple (Enigma) modules with system splitters and / or combiners – such as 32x64 or 32x128 up to a maximum of 512x512.

    We also have modules with other capacities - please see;

    Victor Matrix - Up to 16 input x 16 output (populated in increments of 4)

    Hurricane Matrix - up to 64 inputs x 64 outputs (populated by increments of 8)

    Vortex Matrix - Up to 64 inputs x 64 outputs (populated in increments of 16)

    Vulcan Matrix - Up to 128 inputs x 128 outputs (populated in increments of 8)
