TCI Model 720 VHF/UHF maritime and coastal surveillance radio direction finding (DF) system

TCI Model 720 VHF/UHF Maritime and Coastal Surveillance Radio Direction Finding (RDF) System

  • Description
The TCI Model 720 is a high-performance radio direction finder that can be easily integrated into maritime vessel traffic systems (VTS) or interference detection systems for search and rescue operations and radio band protection applications. Model 720 systems can also be used individually or networked together on land or on a vessel to identify the LOB or source location of distress signals or other RF transmissions. A compact member of TCI’s 700 series of field-proven Spectrum Monitoring Systems (SMS), the 720 provides an accurate, real-time solution for unattended monitoring and instantaneous identification of the source of radio transmissions for applications such as:

• Vessel tracking systems (VTS)
• Port management
• Maritime border protection
• Search and rescue (SAR) for aeronautical and maritime services (121.5 MHz, 156.8 MHz, optional 243.0 MHz & 406.25 MHz)
• Interference detection from other radio services
• Unauthorized usage
• Homeland Security
• Border protection
• Advanced real-time spectrum monitoring

• Simultaneous radio direction finding on more than 40 user-defined frequency channels.
• Exceptional direction finding speed and measurement accuracy.
• 80-500 MHz coverage with the TCI Model 641 or 645 antenna.
• Optional HF DF monitoring coverage from 9 kHz to 30 MHz and DF coverage from 2 to 30 MHz.
• Instantaneous bandwidth of 4 MHz.
• Application Programming Interface (API) for control and output to vessel traffic service (VTS) management systems.
• Client-server architecture with full networking capability over TCP/IP.
• SCORPIO client software for local or networked setup, control and display.
• Selectable measurement bandwidths include 6.25 kHz, 8.33 kHz, 12.5 kHz, 25 kHz, 50 kHz and 100 kHz.
• Compact antenna and spectrum processor units.
• Automated emergency and high-priority channel monitoring and interference detection with alarm capability.
• Built-in self-test and calibration.
• Meets or exceeds all ITU recommendations.
• Interoperable with all TCI 700 series spectrum monitoring systems.
