AIS Spoofing Detection with TDOA

What is AIS? The AIS (Automatic Identification System) is designed to allow ships, boats and other maritime vessels to provide information about their identity, position and heading to other vessels and base stations. It works by broadcasting information using RF signals that can be detected by other users with AIS equipment. This data is transmitted over the maritime channels 87B (161.975 MHz) and [...]

SIGINT capability for Special Operations Forces

SOF (Special Operations Forces) must act with the highest levels of discretion in hostile and often unfamiliar environments. In these scenarios, real-time RF situational awareness is vital for ensuring friendly forces remain undetected and detecting enemy activity. However, this vital capability must be weighed (literally) against the need for forces to be able to carry the equipment and remain agile. So what levels of situational [...]

How accurate is TDOA geolocation?

TDOA (Time Difference Of Arrival), also known as multilateration, is a well-established technique for the geolocation of RF emitters. Using three or more receivers, TDOA algorithms locate a signal source from the different arrival times at the receivers. We trust that existing users of CRFS’s TDOA geolocation know, from their own experience, that it is very accurate and effective for most signal types. New [...]

Direction Finding RMS error: Lies, damned lies and statistics

By Filip Zganec, Regulatory Sales Manager, CRFS Is the RMS error of a DF system as important as some manufacturers would have you believe? Some of our competitors go to extraordinary lengths to talk up the significance of 1° RMS error and to get it specified in tenders as the supposed gold standard. Ever wondered why? It’s because they can limit the competition and can [...]

Geolocation in post-processing

Just seen an interesting transmission appear on your spectrum, but now it’s disappeared? Need to know where it came from, but you weren’t running a geolocation task at the time? Tough luck, it’s gone forever. If you’re lucky, you can sit there staring at your screen and it might pop up again. Sounds ridiculous? That’s what we thought, which is why we’ve developed our geolocation [...]

Multi-user, Multi-mission: Spectrum monitoring and multi-tasking

CRFS’s next generation intelligent radio receivers, or RFeye Nodes as we call them, allow multiple users to run multiple independent sets of monitoring and geolocation tasks simultaneously using the same hardware. This maximizes your return on investment. Distributed networks may vary from a few Nodes over a small area like a building, to hundreds of Nodes across a whole country. Users can log on to [...]

Using RFeye Simulation Capabilities for Virtual Training

CRFS simulation tools allow new users to be trained to use RFeye geolocation software in realistic scenarios without requiring real transmitters or receivers to be set up (especially important if wishing to test a scenario involving unlicensed spectrum use without breaking the law yourself!). Our simulation tools allow a network of simulated receivers and transmitters to perform spectrum monitoring tasks just like a real network. [...]

Cumulative Tracking with Direction Finding Vehicles

CRFS’s Cumulative Tracking feature allows single or multiple transmitters to be located in complex multi-path environments using just a single antenna array RFeye software facilitates single receiver geolocation with its AOA Cumulative Tracking feature. As shown in the image below, a location is gradually built up over time using the multiple Lines Of Bearing obtained as the vehicle-mounted receiver moves. Left to right: Antenna Array, [...]
