Wireless Instrumented Streaming Platform (WISP)
The Wireless Instrumented Streaming Platform (WISP) is a portable, remotely controllable, instrumented wideband RF data capture, transmit, and analysis tool. WISP uses include wireless signal capture, an arbitrary signal generator, and frequency translation for both R&D and field-based operations. WISP runs on a wideband software defined radio (SDR) transceiver architecture.

Graphical User Interface
The intuitive WISP/mini-WISP GUI runs on a laptop computer (laptop included with WISP; offered as option for mini-WISP). The GUI controls powerful use modes with flexibility to support a wide variety of operational scenarios. Users can manage transmitted and captured signal files and can stream raw data and analyze wireless protocols using signal generator analysis software. The WISP/mini-WISP GUI can be operated remotely.
Optional Power Amplifier Modules for Mini-WISP
WISP units include integrated power amplifiers. For mini-WISP units, optional external Power Amplifier Modules are available for applications requiring higher output power. Mini-WISP PA Modules are controlled from the mini-WISP user interface to provide accurate, power-calibrated output levels. Mini-WISP PA Modules are available in single-channel and dual-channel versions and can be configured for frequency coverage and power. A popular version provides up to 5 W of power over 500 MHz-4200 MHz and is powered by either AC or DC (9-36 V).
