Deployable, high-bandwidth Node with Remote I/Q recorder
Remote receiver head with rack mounted processing and storage for high-fidelity RF recording and streaming
- Up to 500+ MHz instantaneous bandwidth
- 9 kHz up to 8 GHz/18 GHz frequency range
- Rack-mounted COTS processors and storage
- Designed for harsh environments
The Node Plus+ performs all the functions of a standard CRFS receiver Node but with the addition of full-rate I/Q streaming and use of a more powerful COTS processor. It enables secure recording to take place in fixed, unmanned locations such as on a mast or tower; no data is stored on the remote receivers. The weatherproof remote receiver heads are located as close to the antenna as possible to minimize cable losses. Data from the receivers is streamed via fiber-optic cables to COTS rack-mounted processors and storage media (SAN, NAS or RAID, for example) housed in a building or secure environmental enclosure.
Node Plus+ has been designed to operate in the harshest of conditions on land and on sea while delivering high-fidelity, low-noise spectrum data.
The rack-mount processor can run in 2 modes: as a node it runs node firmware and the faster processor allows detectors and other DSP algorithms to run faster so offering a higher POI. In recorder mode, the processor runs DeepView forensic analysis software. By remotely connecting to DeepView via web browser, anyone in your organization can perform analysis on the data without the need for high-speed data connections.
The modular nature of Node Plus+ enables you to increase the IBW from 100 MHz up to several hundred MHz with no degradation in SFDR. Multiple receiver heads can be deployed using a single antenna input to provide wider IBWs.
