  • RFeye Backpack

Mission-ready integrated solution for discreet spectrum surveillance in urban or security-critical locations

The RFeye Backpack is a man-portable integrated system designed for easy spectrum surveying on foot. Built into a standard commercial backpack, the system includes a ruggedized RFeye Node 20-6, internal and external antenna mounting, high performance rechargeable battery and integrated SSD memory for high volume data collection during mobile field operations.

Embedded data logging software applications are typically pre-programmed with the required measurement profile prior to deployment, allowing autonomous spectrum surveillance and surveying operations to be performed by non-technical personnel. Data is visualized and analyzed post-survey using RFeye application software. In addition, any mobile computing device with a web browser can be connected for real-time monitoring of signals during the survey using embedded RFeye Web Apps software.
