IZT Unveils IZT R3000 Receiver Series Software for Radio Location Finding
IZT Introduces Location Finding Software for Its IZT R3000 Receiver Series
Uses cost efficient (TDOA) Time-Difference-Of-Arrival methods
IZT GmbH, a leading provider of digital signal processing equipment for RF signals, announced today the introduction of software for radio location finding for both commercial and military applications using IZT’s successful IZT R3000 receiver series. The software resides on a central station and connects multiple IZT R3000 receivers in different remote locations. Comparing their receive signals results in accurate delay measurements which are then used to derive the location of the signal’s source. The result is displayed on a map. Efficient algorithms reduce the amount of data that has to be transferred between the central station and the remote receivers, permitting the use of slower wireless connections between the remote receivers and the central station.
“The new software allows our customers to add location finding capabilities to their monitoring stations at significantly lower cost compared to other direction finding systems on the market”, said Rainer Perthold, General Manager of IZT. “This TDOA system can provide accurate measurements even in difficult RF environments making use of our IZT R3000 receiver series’ excellent large signal performance”.
