TCI to Present Drone Detection, Blackbird NextGen and HF SIGINT Advances at 53rd Annual AOC Symposium and Convention

Fremont, CA — Attendees at the 53rd Annual AOC Symposium and Convention in Washington, D.C. from November 29 – December 1 will learn about TCI advances in signals intelligence (SIGINT) developed to address some of today’s most critical challenges. The event is widely recognized as the leading industry forum expressly targeted to the global SIGINT/EW community.

Among the technologies TCI will showcase are field-proven, fully automated solutions for detecting and geolocating drones and their operators. TCI is aggressively pursuing measures to help counter rapidly proliferating, low-cost, high-capability drones that pose immediate threats to safety, security and privacy.

TCI also will update attendees on the continuing evolution of its drone detection system technology, Blackbird NextGen. Building on proven Blackbird E3238S capability, Blackbird NextGen integrates TCI’s RF and DF hardware expertise with its advanced software engineering capabilities to set new benchmarks for integrated signal search, collection, geolocation and analysis.

Developments that will be highlighted at AOC include TCI’s 802W wideband HF system, which brings Blackbird versatility and simplicity to high-frequency SIGINT missions. TCI specialists also will explain the new Blackbird Partner Program that invites other hardware vendors to leverage the power of TCI’s Blackbird software.

TCI invites attendees at AOC to visit Booth 214, and explore the ways in which the company is employing its global perspective to support those responsible for facing the challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s electromagnetic operational domain.
