Traditional direction-finding systems provide a single line of bearing to a target, as shown below in Figure 1. RFeye Site, on the other hand, can provide far more detail, and does so with a user-friendly interface, allowing operators to extract the maximum amount of geolocation information from incoming signals. Figure 1 Single Line of Bearing (LOB) Feature 1 – Color-Coded Lines of Bearing RFeye [...]
One of the most frequently-asked questions when discussing our RF drone detection system is: “At what distance are you able to detect drones? How far away can they be and still be picked up by RFeye?” And the answer, as is so often the case, is “it’s complicated” - depending on the conditions, the answer could be anything from many kilometers to tens of [...]

Industry 4.0 is an overarching term used to describe the automation and computerization of industry, and in particular of manufacturing and production processes. Things that seemed like science fiction only a few years ago, like entirely automated factories and processing plants, have now become a reality. Smart warehouses include things like automated packing, automated stocktake, automated vehicles. By removing human elements from the structure entirely, [...]
As COVID-19 continues to disrupt normal life across the globe, we’re all having to adapt to the (hopefully temporary) new reality of working remotely. As part of that process, we wanted to reach out directly to our customers and to the wider RF community by organizing a series of interactive webinars. We’ve chosen a selection of topics that we hope will prove useful and [...]
What are LEO satellites, what can they be used for, and how can they be tracked using RF? In this blog, we will find out. Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites are far from a new phenomenon (indeed, the very first satellite, Sputnik, was an example back in 1957), but they are attracting increasing interest for their current and potential future uses in financial services, [...]
Security & Policing is THE official Government global security event, offering a world-class opportunity to meet, network and discuss the latest advances in delivering national security and resilience with UK suppliers, colleagues and Government officials.
Quick Read Summary: A new training video from CRFS to help users of 'Radio Direction Finding' (DF) Arrays understand the importance of multipath. The video animation is designed to help users visualize real world environments in terms of multipath/RF reflections. Different object models are used alongside materials that reflect RF differently to demonstrate the principle. View the full animation here RF Training A slightly [...]
A fully functioning radar provides crucial situational awareness in a wide variety of military settings. And as a key component in the electronic warfare arsenal, it is likely to be the target of countermeasures by opposing forces designed to degrade friendly capabilities, most likely some variety of radar jamming. This can range from straightforward brute-force jamming attempts, where an overwhelmingly powerful wideband RF signal [...]
In a recent blog post, we described how 3D TDOA could be used to detect spoofed ADS-B signals from aircraft. And it’s fair to say that the area around an airport is a heavily congested area, with large numbers of planes constantly coming and going. If you’ve got some familiarity with TDOA, though, there might have been something nagging at the back of your [...]
