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, [...]
With the RFeye Sens Portable I/Q recorder, it is possible to track down and record even hard-to-find interference sources. So here’s the scenario - you’ve created a brilliant new piece of wirelessly-enabled technology, and you’ve tested it extensively in a laboratory setting. Everything is working perfectly until it makes contact with the real world, at which point, unexplained interference problems begin to occur. As [...]
We see why the RFeye Node has been a key component in ensuring the success of major global sporting events. Securing the RF spectrum at major events is a crucial part of the national spectrum regulator’s role. Major sporting events such as the Olympics and F1 world Championship can mean big money for governing bodies and hosting countries. The UEFA Euro 2016 tournament in [...]
From ship navigation to financial transactions, we’re increasingly reliant on GPS. Jamming and spoofing can therefore cause significant disruption and represent a public safety threat. Fortunately, spectrum monitoring allows detection and location of jammers and the possibility to pre-empt attacks with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing technologies. During an L1 and L2 GPS band monitoring campaign over just a few weeks in London, we detected significant [...]
The minimum detectable signal for a given range, or maximum range for a given signal power, is not as simple a question as one might think. Here we will see how this answer is dependent on a number of mission-dependent factors. Since minimum detectable signal and maximum range are closely related problems, we will focus here on the example of minimum detectable signal. Interfering [...]
