Monitoring the RF spectrum is a massive undertaking. As well as dealing with the vast quantity of RF signals present, a spectrum manager needs to know what signals should be there, what shouldn’t, when the signals occurred and the signal transmitter location.
This task takes on an even more critical importance when dealing with RF signals on military test ranges. RFeye Mission has been designed to help Spectrum Managers with planning, live monitoring, and postevent analysis of everything happening on the range. Its intuitive interface means that experts and non-experts are able to quickly obtain actionable intelligence from the RF spectrum. With automation at its core, RFeye Mission helps optimize spectrum operations.
Continuously monitor what is happening anywhere on the range
RFeye Mission’s network of remote, and extremely rugged, RF sensors enable you to continuously monitor the spectrum from a centralized control point. There is no need to transport monitoring equipment to remote parts of the range as the autonomous sensors can cover the range 24/7.
Using the simple browser based interface, you will be able to view the range/base spectrum schedules to see what should be happening when and where. RFeye Mission clearly displays authorized transmitters, operating zones and shows geolocations, incidents, and alarms as they happen.
Save time by automating
Spectrum monitoring of a test can be quickly and remotely set-up. When a test is due to take place RFeye Mission automatically starts monitoring the spectrum, providing you with information on the frequency, power, time up/time down and location. Reports on the specific test or more general spectrum usage can be automatically generated, ensuring the correct data is always collected and reported.
- Signal Power reports – Looks at changes in transmitter power
- Signal Occupancy reports – Looks at the percentage occupancy of a portion of spectrum
- Sweep data – Shows if signals are being transmitted within a spectrum range
Prevent system interference
When multiple missions are taking place on the same range, or even nearby ranges, deconflicting any possible interference can be a time consuming and painstaking task. RFeye Mission lets you quickly import deconfliction schedules, such as Integrated Frequency Deconfliction System (IFDS) files, to automatically create spectrum monitoring tasks and highlight any potential schedule conflicts.
When a test takes place, you’ll need to know instantly if a known or unknown transmitter is operating outside of scope, in the wrong area, or at the wrong time (and potentially causing interference). RFeye Mission can automatically raise alerts for these unexpected events, letting you know who, what, where and when an issue occurs. Via the RFeye Mission Integrator API, these alerts can also be pushed to 3rd party systems.
Monitor your airspace
Air Defense Package (3D TDOA and ballistics)
With the optional Airborne Defense Package airborne targets emitting RF can be individually identified, and flight characteristics determined (including heading, speed, flight path, and altitude). This data can further be used to determine flight envelope characteristics such as climb and turn rates, acceleration rates, etc.
Signal of Interest (SOI) Detector Package
With this optional detector package, you can target single channel or multi-channel signals, including pulse signals such as Link 16, TACAN and ADS-B. Geolocations derived from this data can then be displayed in RFeye Mission.
