Wideband RF spectrum streaming, recording and analysis
EW/radar testing and analysis
Many radar systems try to disguise their signals by randomizing and spreading the pulses over a wide bandwidth. Using RFeye SenS to capture the full I/Q over a wide bandwidth allows an analyst to discriminate an individual radar pulse from the background noise. In the design and test of radar systems, this capability is also extremely useful to help ensure the system is performing to specification.
Post-event analysis and testing
After a test has been completed, you may need to question what exactly happened in the spectrum over that period. Did anything occur that caused interference to your systems? Were there any unexpected signals or anomalies? By recording the full I/Q you can reconstruct what happened and when. This data can then be used to verify the root cause or create repeatable environments for further tests, saving you time and money.
When radar or other transmissions cause accidental interference to communications equipment, spectrum managers and enforcement teams need to be able to identify the source quickly and with certainty. However, this can be difficult when the signal is sporadic or transient. By capturing the full I/Q you can quickly find trends and patterns in the data over time, which will help identify the signal source.
Signals intelligence (SIGINT)
Military and security services are interested in a range of signal types generated by hostile actors. By recording and analyzing the spectrum over time, it is possible to determine what signals were generated and where they came from. Further decoding and classification work can then be performed to extract evidential intelligence from the captured signals.
RFeye SenS range
CRFS provides different SenS solutions for a wide variety of missions and requirements: SenS Portable, SenS Remote and SenS G-Rack. All SenS systems utilize the same highly sensitive wideband superheterodyne receiver technology to provide full 16-bit sample resolution and ultra-low noise.
