CRFS launches high fidelity RFeye Portable Recorder

Posted 6 June 2017 · Add Comment

Specialist provider of real-time RF spectrum monitoring solutions, CRFS, has launched its RFeye Portable Recorder system for high fidelity capture, record and analysis of wideband RF spectrum data to 8 GHz or 18 GHz.


Compact and weighing less than 3 kg, the RFeye Portable Recorder has been designed for use in the field or on the bench. It captures to disk full line-rate 16 bit I/Q data at up to 100 MHz instantaneous bandwidth. Powerful RFeye DeepView signal browser and analysis software enables multi-terabyte captured data to be searched and analyzed fast and efficiently.

Applications include complete assurance on and around spectrum critical sites such as ranges and airfields; SigInt/EW uses for capture and recognition of different pulse signatures and understanding of the RF environment; radar and EW test and simulation scenarios.

Dr Jon Bradley, VP Sales International at CRFS, commented, “CRFS has solved the problem of creating a high fidelity wideband recorder system in the small form factor required for a compact portable unit. Add to this the latest network interfaces to modern laptops and memory storage systems capable of capturing very high data rates. The heart of the unit is the RFeye Nexus 100 MHz IBW receiver with its
outstanding phase noise, noise figure and sweep speed. And we have taken advantage of the new Intel ThunderboltTM 3 technology and high speed SSD technology to enable full-rate accurate recording even at the 100 MHz bandwidth”.

The system is modular and comes with 8 GHz and 18 GHz receiver modules with matched SSD storage modules of up to 6.4 TB each. Thunderbolt 3 connectivity allows up to 6 modules to be simultaneously connected to a single laptop allowing for multi-channel deployments. RFeye DeepView software enables management and cataloguing of massive data sets with advanced tools for analysis, visualization and spectrum reconstruction.

Bradley concluded: “True high-fidelity record and playback of all RF spectrum events will enable forensic post-analysis on huge data sets and reconstruction of any signal/event happening in the data set, as well as retrospective geolocation missions. Our aim is to help our customers efficiently to convert their captured data into actionable intelligence.” The Portable Recorder product will be formally launched during the upcoming AOC EW Europe 2017 event in London on 7th June. CRFS is currently engaged in evaluations of the Portable Recorder with lead customers and will be taking orders for delivery in three months.
