The Aeroflex 3515LSR (Life Support Radio) Test System is the next generation test platform for life support radios. The 3515LSR Test System consists of the widely deployed 3515AR Radio Test Set and custom designed RF isolation chamber, as well as custom cabling for the supported radios.

The Aeroflex 3515LSR is a self-contained, compact, transportable, automated test system designed for ease of use and deploy-ability. It is used for operational verification testing of life support radio systems: 406 MHz COSPAS/SARSAT beacons, 121.5 MHz beacon and 243 MHz beacons.

One of the keys to testing life support radios is minimizing the radiated RF, and even more important, ensuring that the 406 MHz COSPAS/SARSAT Beacon does not trigger a false alert inadvertently. To accomplish this, Aeroflex has designed a custom RF isolation chamber which provides the user with better than 70 dB of isolation. With this type of isolation, the technician can feel confident that he can fully test a life support radio without running the risk of triggering a false beacon event.
