SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE (SIGINT)

Improve Situational Awareness with thinkRF

Capture more signals and control the spectrum with advanced Software-Defined Spectrum Analysis solutions from thinkRF.

Better Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) with thinkRF

Signals intelligence and electronic intelligence (SIGINT/ELINT) have become critical components of situational awareness, command and control systems, and public safety and security initiatives. Users are facing an increasingly dense, congested, and contested spectrum, and often have no prior knowledge about the signal they are looking for.

Patented software-defined spectrum analysis platforms from thinkRF offer the best price-performance ratio available on the market. These platforms allow users to detect traditional narrowband signals, intermittent and short-duration signals, and emerging wideband digital communications in a wide range of challenging environments and deployment scenarios with high accuracy and reliability. You can upgrade thinkRF platforms without replacing built-in hardware to analyze new standards and extend useful life of equipment, hence reduce total cost of ownership.

thinkRF Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Applications

The thinkRF S240 Spectrum Analysis Software is a comprehensive data visualization and measurement tool for both spectrum and signal analysis. You can extract the original information bearing signal from a carrier wave for a deeper signal analysis.

LS telcom is the global leader in spectrum efficiency for more than 25 years. They deliver technologies and services to national and international regulatory bodies, mobile and broadcast operators, public safety, defense, and utilities. LS telcom provides world-leading broadcast network planning software and engineering, consulting, radio monitoring, and measurement services.

The LS OBSERVER solution, which leverages the thinkRF R5550 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer for advanced spectrum analysis capabilities, can be used for a variety of spectrum monitoring applications.

The LS OBSERVER system consists of various Remote Monitoring Units (RMUs), one or more Central Control Units, and software for detailed measurement data analysis and statistics. Mobile, portable, transportable, fixed and airborne monitoring units are available. The LS OBSERVER system, which is built upon and includes the thinkRF R5550 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer is available from LS telcom.

  • Network design, planning, implementation and optimization
  • Maximizing spectrum inventory and broadcast coverage optimization
  • Performing drive tests to locate the source of interference and to rapidly identify whether the real and planned coverage correspond, enabling you to adjust your network if needed
  • Big data analysis and comparison to support spectrum inventory, make evidence-based spectrum policy decisions, and retrieve usage information
  • Central monitoring software that controls and analyzes the data from all the monitoring units
  • Automatic violation detection software to alert the operator when the measured signal strength does not correspond to the reference signal strength at a given location
  • Unique data compression and storage capacity directly inside the measuring units

thinkRF Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers integrated with DynamicSignals Wideband RF Signal Analyzer Recording Systems allow application developers to extend their capabilities or build new products that meet customer requirements.

The GaGe and Signatec series of RF signal recording systems are complete with integrated receivers, digitizers, computer, storage, and programming-free spectrum analyzer software. These turn-key solutions provide customers with a very powerful and flexible signal recording system, while minimizing the risks of self-integrated systems. Get real-time streaming signal recordings to host RAID storage at up to 6 GigaBytes per second with live data snapshot monitoring.

The spectrum analyzer software, SpectraScopeRT, requires no programming and allows for control of receiver center frequency, bandwidth, and signal recordings. SpectraScopeRT features real-time FFT power spectrums (with peak hold and persistence), spectrograms, histograms, and time domain displays while recording, and upon recording playback.
SpectraScopeRT/SpectraViewRT signal recording and playback viewer applications for combined thinkRF downconverter and GaGe digitizer operational control with IQ time domain, I spectrum, IQ power spectrum, constellation, spectrogram, persistence, and histogram displays.


To accommodate customer integrated solutions, the digitizers and receivers have full control and data acquisition support via Mathworks MATLAB. Example programs are furnished to facilitate rapid signal processing and modulation analysis program development. Additional SDKs and example programs are provided for C/C# and LabVIEW.
Real-time streamed analysis and processing is fully supported with either an on board FPGA or a PCIe 3.0 GPU board. These solutions allow real-time processing on data streams exceeding 3 GB/s.

  • Signals intelligence applications
  • Wideband/narrowband signal analysis
  • High speed spectrum scanning
  • Sampling rates at up to 1 GigaSample per second with 2, 4 or 8 digitizing channels
  • Input bandwidths of up to 700 MHz for wideband analysis
  • Onboard sample memory up to 8 GS (16 GB)
