The RFeye BackPack is a complete integrated man-portable sysytem designed to allow discrete spectrum surveys and surveillance in urban or security-critical environmentsEnquire
Built into a standard commercial backpack, the system includes an RFeye Node, environmental protection cover, internally-mounted antennas, battery providing up to 6 hours of operation, power controller and charger, and high-capacity USB memory stick for local data storage. Overall backpack weight is approximately 6 kg (13.2 lb).
Pre-programmable, flexible and easy to use
The system may be pre-programmed with the required measurement profile - frequency ranges, measurement intervals, resolution bandwidths, statistical processing required etc. - prior to the start of the survey, allowing use by non-technical personnel where required. The built-in high accuracy GPS receiver is used to tag the data received to allow mapping against location, and data is also time-stamped using the precision GPS-derived clock, allowing later TDOA (time difference of arrival) analysis against data from other nodes for signal geolocation purposes. In locations with poor GPS coverage, 'waypoint' based location logging may alternatively be used. Data is logged to a USB memory stick for easy transfer of data after each survey.
Built-in data processing and intelligence
The powerful embedded Linux system built into the RFeye Node allows for conditional data acquisition (including if-then-else constructs) and statistical analysis as the data is collected to maximise the value of the survey data. In addition, a netbook PC may be connected for monitoring signals received whilst the survey is underway.
