RAPTOR RXi ULTRA-FAST SCANNING COUNTERSURVEILLANCE RECEIVER

The Raptor RXi is an ultra-fast-scanning counter-surveillance receiver for quickly detecting surveillance transmitters.

The Raptor scans from 10kHz to 26GHz in under 4s, detecting even the briefest pulsed transmissions. Featuring a fast Core 2 Duo processor, its multiple software tools and demodulators detect frequency-hopping, burst mode and spread spectrum devices as well as analogue audio and video signals.

Two spectrum analyser windows allow the user to simultaneously view the whole spectrum and zoom in on individual frequencies. The 'Waterfall' display mode gives an intuitive display of signals over time. The Raptor is designed to allow 24hr continuous monitoring of the radio spectrum to detect remote-controlled devices. Using its built-in Ethernet port, the Raptor can be operated remotely, allowing sites to be continuously monitored without the need for a site visit.

Modern ultra wideband (UWB) spread spectrum devices are challenging for a conventional receiver to detect. Its optional integrated, dedicated UWB receiver allows the Raptor to detect such devices easily. The Raptor is a portable device, allowing reference scans to be easily run in different areas of a building, operating either from an internal rechargeable battery or an external supply. Its integrated antenna system provides excellent wideband performance from 10kHz to 26GHz.

The Raptor RXi incorporates a package of software tools including its optional unique patent-protected spectrum-logging facility (Rectrix) to provide 24 hour protection of premises against the most sophisticated modern surveillance threats. The Raptor can also be supplied with an external passive omni-directional antenna which has amazing coverage from below 20 MHz to 26GHz. With nominal gains of 0 dBi or higher over 99.5% of the frequency range.
