Product Description

The 950 COMINT Series platform is TCI’s next generation solution for tactical COMINT applications running TCI’s Blackbird RF signal acquisition, direction finding (DF), geolocation and processing software.
The 950 COMINT Series is modular and scalable and is provided in three different base models with a high degree of customisation to maximise CONOPS flexibility. The 950 COMINT Series leverages TCI’s 50+ years’ RF experience and improves on the current 900-series COMINT platform, providing 80 MHz wide Instantaneous Bandwidth (IBW), faster DF and monitoring scan rates, lower SWaP, ruggedised rack mount and IP67 man portable configurations to optimise deployment capabilities.

Wideband Scan & Simultaneous DF

The 950 COMINT Series searches, detects, intercepts, collects and locates sources of RF energy and simultaneously DFs all signals in the bands of interest using fast-stepping wideband receivers combined with DSP-based frequency channelisation.

Signal Detection and DF

Interlinked fast scanning detection/DF displays combined with powerful signal isolation capabilities enable real-time and post-mission detection and DF of modern signals, including frequency-agile signals. Intercept, locate, identify, and process RF signals with fully integrated solutions.
