For applications requiring electronic warfare (EW) and signal intelligence (SIGINT), a single turnkey system can provide both functions. It can also open communications channels to as many troops as needed via unlimited channel count.
On that front, the model HUGIN 304DF EW/SIGINT system from Novator Solutions provides over five dozen communications channels with simultaneous monitoring and recording of analog voice using push-to-talk (PTT) communications with amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation, or single-sideband (SSB) modulation.
The compact EW/SIGINT system (see image above) supports communications, direction finding (DF), and spectrum monitoring across a frequency range of 20 to 520 MHz. It features four tuners each with 80-MHz instantaneous bandwidth, 60 channels for PTT voice communications, and four channels for in-phase/quadrature (IQ) recording. As an option, one of the tuners can automatically perform spectrum monitoring from 150 MHz to 6 GHz. The system’s unique channelizer design reduces the cost per channel. The built-in DF circuitry provides full 360-degree situational awareness across the base bandwidth.
Henrik Ulfhielm, CEO of Novator Solutions, credited partners for such a fast development of the system, “The close collaboration with our key suppliers and partners allowed us to deliver the first systems within six months from project kickoff.” The system is packed in environmentally safe containers and includes command and control software
