GCC Member Country Selects TCI 350 Blackbird NextGen Systems

Fremont, CA – TCI Blackbird NextGen integrated signal search and survey technology will soon be supporting the signal monitoring efforts of a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member country.

A contract awarded in March 2014 will deliver three TCI Model 350 modular RF platforms. Two will be configured for HF monitoring and one for VHF/UHF monitoring. These client/server systems combine fully integrated, precision RF hardware with TCI’s next generation Blackbird software to provide integrated signal survey, detection, visualization, recording and reporting.

The Model 350’s updated GUI and automation facility make it easier for operators to specify and identify both live and previously intercepted signals of interest. The systems will include modulation recognition, signal classifiers and audio signal analysis.

Upon deployment, these new Model 350 systems will cover the HF band from 9 kHz to 30 MHz and the VHF/UHF/SHF bands from 20 MHz to 6 GHz. TCI also will provide training and installation supervision services.
