Monitoring mmWave frequencies

Why 40GHz Matters Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication systems are coming into widespread use, specifically because the RF spectrum is highly congested, and we need more of it to deal with increasing data demand. MmWave helps both with new spectrum allocations, and efficient spectrum re-use.  MmWave (strictly between 30GHz to 300GHz, but more loosely referred to as frequencies above about 20GHz) is characterized by wider bandwidths, [...]

CRFS Webinar round-up

Since the global lockdown started in March, attending face-to-face events have proved difficult, if not impossible. It was because of this that we decided to start a series of webinars on RF and Electronic Warfare. We were blown away by the response. We had thousands of people join us from all over the world; from their kitchen tables, spare rooms, barrack blocks and a [...]

Counter Drone System Q&A

31 counter-drone questions you need to ask Last month’s webinar, “The Anatomy of An Effective Counter Drone Solution”, generated far more questions than we had time for in the allotted hour, so we invited the presenters (Jon Bradley, VP International Sales at CRFS and Brian Shand, VP, Chief Engineer & CTO at L3Harris ASA) back to answer them. Here are [...]

Capturing and Decoding of PMR Signals – A Brief Introduction

Professional/Private mobile radios (PMR) are two-way radio voice communication systems, including most recognizable handheld radios and widely deployed push-to-talk systems. As these systems can employ direct communication between users, rather than sending information via a central hub (as cellphone or internet messages do), they are still the system of choice for many of those engaged in illicit activities, including criminal gangs and terrorists. As [...]

How to deal with GPS jamming and spoofing

Expanded and updated, July 2020 From ship navigation to financial transactions, we’re increasingly reliant on GPS (or other GNSS systems, such as Galileo, GLONASS or BDS BeiDou). Jamming and spoofing can therefore cause significant disruption and represent a public safety threat. Fortunately, spectrum monitoring allows detection and location of jammers and the possibility to pre-empt attacks with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technologies. GPS Jamming [...]

RFeye Site Feature Spotlight: More Than A Bearing

Traditional direction-finding systems provide a single line of bearing to a target, as shown below in Figure 1. RFeye Site, on the other hand, can provide far more detail, and does so with a user-friendly interface, allowing operators to extract the maximum amount of geolocation information from incoming signals. Figure 1 Single Line of Bearing (LOB) Feature 1 – Color-Coded Lines of Bearing RFeye [...]

What Distance Can You Detect Drones From?

One of the most frequently-asked questions when discussing our RF drone detection system is: “At what distance are you able to detect drones? How far away can they be and still be picked up by RFeye?” And the answer, as is so often the case, is “it’s complicated” - depending on the conditions, the answer could be anything from many kilometers to tens of [...]
