Model 802W

Depend on the field-proven solution for surveillance of traditional and modern HF signals

  • Manual and automatic HF signal detection, location, collection, analysis and archiving.
  • 2 MHz to 30 MHz frequency range (optionally down to .5 MHz depending on antenna type) with up to 28 MHz real-time bandwidth.
  • N-channel architecture, one receiver per antenna, is unsurpassed for dealing with the HF signal environment.
  • TCI DF First™ signal acquisition technology provides exceptional DF accuracy and speed.
  • High dynamic range and excellent co-channel frequency resolution.
  • Signal search and filtering by signal frequency, direction, location, duration, bandwidth and type
  • Modular and scalable architecture for multi-user and/or multi-site applications operating 24/7.
  • Field-proven direction-finding algorithms using TCI and non-TCI antenna arrays.
  • Archiving of measurement results including signal spectral activity, direction and location data

Product Description

The TCI Model 802W employs a flexible client-server architecture that provides a complete set of tools to carry out HF
radio surveillance. The system rapidly acquires and describes any traditional or modern HF signal activity, and subsequently performs detailed analysis of specific signals of interest. The 802W can carry out this analysis manually or automatically in real-time or in delayed (post-facto) mode. The analysis includes detection, location, collection, classification and archiving of signal activities.

Under typical conditions the 802W system rapidly searches the HF spectrum using extremely fine resolution. When RF energy
is detected, the system automatically determines the direction of the energy source and all other important signal parameters.
This information is then automatically archived for future analysis and can be simultaneously passed in real-time to
operator client workstations. The operator at a client workstation tasks the system to find a particular Signal of Interest (SOI) with
specific parameters. The system then processes archived or real-time data to find the SOI and its geographic position or
location and presents this information to the operator.
