The SignalTrack software suite is for use with our DDF6001, DDF6002, and MPT direction finders.  SignalTrack  provides real time control and data acquisition and graphically displays the data from multiple networked direction finding sites on a map and plots the bearings in real time.  The direction finding sites may be connected to SignalTrack

  • By a direct serial connection
  • Via the Internet or an intranet
  • By dialup or leased line modems
  • By radio modem

Data from the direction finding sites are processed to display an estimate of the location of the transmitted signal and to provide an uncertainty ellipse to help the operator determine the quality of the target estimate.  SignalTrack software offers the same functionality as our legacy software, BearingTrack and AutoTrack but adds some important new features including:

  • Single program can be used for both fixed and mobile operation
  • Display of fixed site and mobile site locations and bearings on a single map
  •  Flexible networking of multiple fixed and mobile sites
  •  Improved mapping including user generated maps, the ESRI ArcGIS engine1, and Google Earth
  • Support for USB receivers (ICOM R1500, R2500) as well as RS232 and CIV receivers
  • Automatic calibration to known beacon locations
  • Ability to save mission profiles
  • Synchronize data collection with GPS receiver
  • Audio monitoring and recording of remote sites
  • AES or DES Encryption of data exchanged with other sites (available in North America)
  • Text Messaging between sites (fixed and mobile)
  • Recording and playback of the data received from the sites
  • Text based data logging
  • Supports receiver scanning (ICOM R8500, AOR AR5000, AOR5001D)
  • Improved target estimation algorithm
  •  Improved estimated target display
  •  Setup wizards aide the user in configuring the program
  • Developed on Microsoft’s .Net technology
  • Runs under Windows XP or Windows 7 (32 bit or 64 bit)

SignalTrack currently works with the following receivers
– ICOM R8500
– ICOM R1500
– ICOM R2500
– AOR AR8600
– AOR AR5000
– AOR AR5001D
– AOR SR2200 (Series 7000 only)
If you are not using one of these receivers the you can still use SignalTrack; however, the frequency control functions will be inoperable.
