Living in a Box CRFS’ RFeye Stormcase 100-18 aids signals intelligence collection with its highly deployable and easy-to-use design. They had been watching the farmhouse for some time. The commandos were dug in and well-camouflaged. They remained a safe distance away avoiding detection, keeping their eyes on the buildings. The troops watched the regular comings and goings, the ‘persons of interest’ visiting the house [...]
Expanded and updated, November 2020 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 [...]
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 [...]
