Santa Clara, CA, 95051

Press release date: June 2, 2008

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 2, 2008 -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced a rugged, portable radio tester that enables one-button testing of FM and SINCGARS (SINgle Channel Ground Air Radio System) radios at both the operational and intermediate military testing levels.

The advanced diagnostics available through the new Agilent L4600A Radio Test Set's one-button operation reduces training and troubleshooting time for quicker identification and repair of equipment failures. In addition, technicians can use the built-in spectrum analyzer, network analyzer, signal generator or signal analyzer, depending on testing requirements, to eliminate the need for multiple pieces of test equipment.

The L4600A's rugged, weather-resistant design enables reliable field operation. A magnesium alloy housing provides both a lightweight, durable structure as well as enhanced RF shielding and integrated heat distribution -- a critical element, since the L4600A is fully sealed (no fans or vents) for advanced dust and moisture protection. A water-resistant rubber membrane over the keypad and display seals out water and dirt as well.

Easy, one-button navigation and step-by-step instructions guide users through the testing process without the need for extensive training or technical testing knowledge. In addition, the L4600A's transflective color display enables users to view data in direct sunlight, darkness and shade, providing exceptional flexibility. Backlit keys also allow the tester to operate under all lighting and weather conditions.

"A reliable communication system is critical, so the ability to diagnose and repair radio units either directly in the field or at the intermediate level provides users with added peace of mind," said Tom Burrell, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Signal Networks Division. "The L4600A, which incorporates technology from our commercial radio test equipment used widely throughout the wireless market, enables users to make these advanced diagnoses quickly and accurately."

The test set's architecture is designed for expansion and in-field upgrades, incorporating additional functionality as newer testing technology becomes available, including JTRS radios up to 2.5 GHz.

The L4600A operates over an expanded frequency range of 2 MHz to 2,500 MHz and features a hot-swappable battery. Full span measurement speed is < 17 ms/point; reference level range is -150 dBm to +100 dBm; operating temperature is -10C to +50C (14F to 122F); storage temperature is -40C to +70C (-40F to 158F).
