Discrete data collection

The RFeye Roofbox  is a complete solution for mobile wide area spectrum monitoring.  The system combines the performance of the Node 20-6 with an array of high-performance omnidirectional antennas.  It can be powered via the vehicle 12 VDC supply or optionally via power over Ethernet for users running real-time RFeye software from within the vehicle.

The Roofbox system is targeted principally at spectrum regulatory, planning and enforcement teams who want to capture real-world data about spectrum usage and infringements across wide frequency bands.  The aggregated data that emerges from mobile RFeye systems is used to monitor compliance, identify trends, and detect and localize suspicious or illegal activity.

Onboard intelligence and SSD data storage allow the Roofbox to be used flexibly as a real-time system via in-vehicle touchscreen software, or as a passive data collection system requiring no operator input, or concurrently in both modes
