MORGAN HILL, Calif., June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company announces that its MS2713E Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzer appears in the blockbuster movie Battleship. The Universal Studios hit, inspired by the classic Hasbro® naval board game of the same name, is an action-adventure film about a fleet of naval ships forced to battle an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

The MS2713E Spectrum Master is prominently displayed in a scene in which it is used to locate gaps in a wall of interference created by alien invaders that has cut off a naval warship from the rest of civilization. The MS2713E plays a key role in the scene, which helps set the stage for an exciting, action-filled conclusion.  

"The inclusion of the MS2713E in a Hollywood hit such as Battleship is something everyone at Anritsu can be proud of. Our market-leading position, especially in military and national security applications, made our instruments a natural choice for the film," said Donn Mulder, Senior VP and General Manager of Microwave Measurements Division. "Our handheld analyzers have achieved many firsts in the marketplace. We believe that tradition of leadership continues, as the MS2713E hits the big screen."
