RFeye® Site is our state-of-the-art desktop application for all your real-time monitoring and geolocation requirements. It includes all the essential functionality needed for spectrum monitoring and management tasks such as: carrying out RF spectrum sweeps; IQ capture; measurements of power, occupancy, bandwidth and frequency deviation; and visualization via interactive charts and graphs. However, RFeye Site goes far beyond this with a vast array of advanced functionalities combined in one software suite which is ideal for the RF expert. This includes:
- Indoor and outdoor real-time geolocation (including AOA, TDOA, POA and hybrid)
- Detailed interactive mapping of Node networks and geolocation results
- Alarms and triggered missions (e.g. sweep, IQ capture, geolocation) in response to frequency mask breakages
- Signal classification
- Post-analysis of recorded signals (including geolocation)
- 3D TDOA geolocation for aircraft and drone tracking
- Propagation modelling to optimize receiver networks for required coverage
- Simulation capabilities for testing of monitoring and geolocation scenarios
The value of this extensive range of capability is maximized with our multi-mission capability enabling multiple spectrum monitoring and geolocation tasks to be run simultaneously on the same Nodes.
RFeye Site can be customized according to your application requirements by including or excluding optional plugins. Contact us if you’d like to discuss your needs further or continue reading to find out more about Site functionality.
CRFS knows that those charged with monitoring and management of the RF spectrum need to carry out essential measurements in a more effective and efficient way. RFeye Site allows all the basic measurements to be carried out, including frequency, power and frequency deviation according to relevant ITU recommendations. Data from receiver networks comprising many Nodes, Arrays and other RFeye hardware can then be overlaid and analyzed with customizable charts and measurement tools.
Detailed and fast updating real-time monitoring in our software is enabled by the exceptional performance of our hardware ensuring capture of short duration and low power signals. Frequency masks can also be set up on particular bands and channels with mask breakages used to trigger tasks such as recording of signals of interests, geolocation or even triggering of 3rd party alarm systems.
Monitoring scenarios can also be simulated with simulated receivers and transmitters allowing illegal and/or dangerous monitoring scenarios to be simulated and tested in a virtual environment.
In response to customer requirements, we have also recently developed our geolocation in post-processing feature. This allows TDOA geolocation to be carried out on recorded signals allowing for example, post-event diagnosis of interference incidents.
Simulated geolocation scenarios can also be carried out using our receiver and transmitter simulation tools. This can be used to train staff on interference hunting without requiring a real source of interference to be set up.
Our signal classification plugin allows signal types to be accurately identified using machine learning technology. Our research and development in this area has allowed us to enhance classification accuracy as well as supporting the classification of new and unrecognized signal types.
Typical military uses of this capability include classifying signals to support identification of unfriendly forces and gather intelligence on their capabilities e.g. identifying emissions from weapons control systems, specific communications protocols etc.
Signal classification can also help diagnose RF interference and identify signals which are out of band. Also see signal verification.
As we develop this product further, customers will be able to independently add their own signal types to allow the classifier to work on signal types which may be classified and hence not available to external software providers such as CRFS.
Signal verifier is a tool primarily aimed at regulatory customers to allow automated identification of license violations. This plugin provides an easy to interpret spectrum overlay to identify transmissions which are not of the expected type for the band in which they are transmitting.
