Award ceremony recognises outstanding export sales of RFeye spectrum monitoring systems
CAMBRIDGE, UK: 3 July 2013 — CRFS, the world-leading manufacturer of RF spectrum monitoring systems, was today presented with the 2013 Queen’s Award for Enterprise, International Trade by HM Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Hugh Duberly Esq CBE, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen. The award recognises the significant growth in CRFS’s export sales of spectrum monitoring and surveillance technology. The Lord-Lieutenant visited CRFS’s facility on Cambridge Research Park, where he met the whole CRFS team prior to presenting the Award to CEO, Dr Alistair Massarella.
Over the past three years CRFS has built a strong market position in the key US market where it supplies its state-of-the-art RFeye® systems to a wide range of customers, including the US DoD, security age
ncies and commercial companies. These systems are deployed to help plan and manage efficient spectrum usage and to resolve interference issues, as well as to alert for unauthorised or illegal transmissions that may indicate a security breach, public safety threat, or espionage.
CRFS has also made significant strides in the last year in building its sales and support channels across South America, Europe, Middle East and Asia. The company is bidding on some major overseas contracts in these regions which will drive continuing growth of its export sales.
