TCI Model 902 Integrated HF Signal Search, Collection, DF/Geolocation & Analysis System

TCI Model 902 Integrated HF Signal Search, Collection, Geolocation and Analysis System

The TCI Model 902 system combines Blackbird software with updated RF hardware and TCI’s world-leading HF DF and geolocation technology to deliver the next generation of signals intelligence.

The result is a fully integrated, COTS signals intelligence capability providing unparalleled HF signal survey, search, detection, visualization, collection, wideband recording, DF/geolocation, analysis and reporting. It’s the best of the proven, classic Blackbird, modernized with new technology, HF DF/geolocation and point-and-shoot simplicity.

The Blackbird software automatically scans the RF spectrum, detecting and cataloging all HF signal activity. Operators use the Blackbird GUI to view the spectrum and signal activity in list, spectrogram and map views using intuitive controls including touchscreen and gesture support. Since the spectral data is recorded, operators can scroll “back in time” and view spectral data which is overlaid with the detection database results. Simply point at any signal to pop up the signal characteristics, or use the Search pane to find live or past signals of interest based on specific signal characteristics. When configured with TCI’s Lookback Collection option, you’ll never miss a collect for a signal of interest since IQ data for any past signal can be extracted from the Lookback Storage Array without interrupting wideband recording.

Once signals of interest are found, a simple right-click is all it takes to record, process, analyze and export results. Or, click the Automate button to select one or more actions that will be triggered when signals arrive that match the automation search criteria. Available actions include Blackbird’s Smart Recording capability which allows signals to be collected based on their modulation characteristics.
