product description

The TC-9320 COMINT/DF System provides cost effective, high performance, advanced direction finding capability over the 30 to 2000 MHz range (option for 6 GHz coverage), and signal intercept over the 30-6000 MHz range in a next-generation two-channel architecture providing simultaneous COMINT and DF functions. The system is designed for fixed site, vehicle, shipboard and airborne applications. Windows based software and GUI is provided for system control, BIT status, RF/Baseband spectral displays, DF LOB plots, moving map display and mission data logging. The system includes a built-in GPS and electronic compass and accepts external platform NAV data. Two or more TC-9320 systems can be networked to provide precise geo-location solutions. The TC-9320 provides direction finding and signal intercept for AM, NBFM, WBFM, USB, LSB, CW and PM signals. Optional Krypto500/1000 and Signal Works/Mod-Rec decoding, classification and analysis software packages are available to address a wide range of complex signal formats.
