SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA INTRODUCES TOUCH-SCREEN-BASED PATTERN RECORDER New Instrument Simplifies Antenna Measurement Process

 ATLANTA, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. (NYSE: SFA) has introduced a revolutionary new pattern recorder that dramatically improves the science of testing high performance antennas.
 The Model 1590 pattern recorder is the only one of its type to use a touch-screen display to plot, analyze and store pattern data.
 The new instrument, available now, is produced by Scientific- Atlanta's Instrumentation Group which introduced the industry's first antenna pattern recorder more than 40 years ago.
 The Model 1590 is designed to make a test engineer more productive by allowing quick scale changes, simplified overlay comparisons and easy antenna pattern analyses. All normal recorder functions are easily accessed from the touch-sensitive display. Patterns are acquired and displayed in real time and displayed on the large 19-inch color monitor in both rectangular and polar coordinates.
 Antenna pattern recorders are used to analyze the propagation of antennas by compiling data regarding an antenna's beamwidth, sidelobe levels, boresight position, null depth, axial ratio and gain. Recorders are used to perform measurements at commercial and military test ranges worldwide. There are approximately 8,000 such ranges operating in the world today.
 Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. is a world leader in broadband communications systems, cable television electronics, satellite-based communications networks, and instrumentation for industrial, telecommunications and government applications.
