Patent-pending Tools Revolutionize Microwave Design

Designing and implementing RF and microwave signal routing solutions is both challenging and time consuming; however, VTI has the tools to simplify the process while saving you considerable time and money. 

VTI's Broadband Integrated Design Wizard, with access to thousands of components and data sheets, enables custom designs to be defined and configured in less than one day. This represents a true paradigm shift away from design methodologies used in the past.


An application specific Graphical User Interface (GUI), generated automatically from the design documents, is ready for out-of-the-box operation with any web browser worldwide.  Additionally, path-level instrument drivers based on the IVI-COM and IVI-C classes are automatically generated and eliminate the need for custom software driver development and testing.


By combining a powerful web-based search engine with an intuitive graphical configuration utility, developers can quickly create a custom assembly with the look and feel of a standard commercial-of-the-shelf (COTS) product.  The finished subsystem includes complete documentation, generated automatically, to simplify long-term support and ensure product reusability.

Experience the future of broadband microwave design today!

Mission Critical Reliability for Rocket Motor Test

Solid rocket motors (SRM), a critical component of rocket launch vehicles, are essential for delivering payloads both inside and outside of Earth's atmosphere. Whether validating the development of future SRMs or verifying the production of existing designs, precision testing is critical to the success of each launch.  SRM testing requires the utmost accuracy because a launch failure can be catastrophic resulting in the loss of lives and property.

VTI's proven accuracy and reliability is ideal for strain, temperature, voltage, and vibration measurements in SRM test cells.  Unique instrumentation capabilities, such as internal self-calibration, integrated signal conditioning, outstanding analog design, measurement stability, and simplified connectivity
have made VTI the solution of choice.
