Patented software-defined spectrum analysis platforms from thinkRF are designed and built for advanced spectrum monitoring applications. With our application ecosystem and proven integrations with leading software partners, we can help you build complete spectrum monitoring solutions for a wide variety of applications. 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.


Overcome the complexity of spectrum monitoring, detecting and analyzing complex and wideband signals with the best price-performance ratio available on the market

Monitor in more locations with networking capabilities purpose built for remote and in-place monitoring across a wide geographic area

Never miss a signal due to slow sweep rates – the thinkRF platforms feature a sweep rate of 28 GHz/s and advanced triggering capabilities to track faint and short duration signals across the time or frequency domains

Keep up with new innovations and standards, such as 5G wireless, without replacing hardware components

Leverage the decreasing costs of computing and processing by connecting directly to any PC for digital signal processing, signal analysis, and other capabilities without the need for built in hardware

Detect wideband, short duration, and hopping signals with rapid sweep rates and advanced triggering capabilities

thinkRF Spectrum Monitoring Applications

Professional Development TSCM Group is a Canadian owned private corporation with 38+ years of professional experience delivering specialized Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) services (aka bug sweeps), and standards based, industry certification training. The Kestrel TSCM Professional Software is a powerful, cost-effective, and full featured TSCM software to detect and locate low-powered, short duration, or sporadic signals of interest.

The thinkRF R5550 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer integrates with the leading Kestrel TSCM Professional Software for an advanced technical surveillance countermeasures solution that protects your facility from unseen threats.

  • Detecting and locating illicit surveillance devices in government facilities, enterprises, and other organizations
  • Conducting 24/7, continuous facility monitoring from a central location
  • Protecting sensitive information and intellectual property from malicious actors
  • Continuous monitoring capabilities outside of regular working hours to increase the likelihood of detection
  • Operator centric, workflow based GUI that promotes excellent situational awareness and maximizes the probability of detection
  • Advanced display, search, and analysis capabilities for any number of independent spectral range windows

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)
