This report documents the design, development, construction, and integration of two major modules and the software interface between the operator and the hardware of the SATCOM Signal Analyzer (SSA). The two modules are the Signal Selector and the Spectrum Receiver. Each SSA contains one Signal Selector which is the system's computer controlled switching network. Laboratory test procedures and results are contained in this report. The SSA has four computer controlled Spectrum Receiver chains which provide real-time multi-channel analysis of satellite downlink signals and local uplink signals. Real-time analysis includes the capability to observe the frequency spectrum with one of four display bandwidths. Laboratory test procedures are documented in this report. The menu concept of operation provides the operator-hardware interface. A menu is a video display of information and a series of buttons presented to the operator on the Hewlett-Packard (HP) 2649A Display Terminal. This report examines the menu concept from source file to display on the operator's console and backup display on the CONRAC QQA-17 large screen video monitor
