About RFeye®

RFeye is different from anything else in the market. Its RF performance and sensitivity is exceptional and compares with that of bench-top analyser equipment. Its speed of sweep is comparable with that of high-end SIGINT receivers with very high probability of signal intercept across all monitored frequencies. The RFeye is fully autonomous and remotely programmable with its own built-in intelligence in the form of a Linux PC. It can perform multi-layered tasks ranging from general background monitoring to specific missions for frequencies of special interest or geolocation techniques such as TDOA, POA and AOA. All of this capability is packaged in a ruggedized IP67-rated housing designed for the most hostile of environments, and the whole unit can be held in the palm of your hand and weighs less than 5lbs. It is low power and can run off multiple power sources including battery-backed solar cells. The RFeye can be deployed standalone or can form part of a remote distributed network where each unit is an intelligent node that can make decisions and prioritize tasks, communicate with and assign tasks to other nodes in the network, flag warnings and trigger alarms. It can log data to local memory or relay back to a centre. CRFS manufactures the RFeye using the latest volume manufacturing techniques which means that it can be sold at a lower price than even standard receivers on the market.
