CRFS signs agreement with Metis Aerospace for airborne platforms

November 12, 2014

CRFS has entered an agreement with Metis Aerospace to supply RFeye® Nexus receivers for integration into Metis’s HYPERION system for high accuracy airborne and ground based mobile COMINT/SIGINT applications. HYPERION is a lightweight, compact and a cost-effective solution for most air platforms from small UAVs up to multi-mission manned platforms. Importantly, it is also free from ITAR restrictions.

CRFS’s state-of-the-art RFeye Nexus receiver provides 100 MHz real-time bandwidth with full rate IQ recording/data streaming with fast bandwidth search and a frequency range from 10kHz to 18GHz.  The receiver has an outstanding noise figure, excellent dynamic range and industry-leading sweep speed.

Tony Burnell, Development & Sales Director at Metis commented: “We believe that the RFeye Nexus is the ideal receiver for HYPERION given its class-leading performance, price and design for integration.  It is very flexible for networking and works very well with the modular and scalable HYPERION platform.  HYPERION is designed to be used standalone or as part of a network of RF sensors to provide a wide range of detection, geo-location, tracking and exploitation options using low bandwidth efficient data backhaul.”

Nick Balon, general manager at CRFS added, “Metis Aerospace is a very good partner for us to exploit the power and capability of the RFeye Nexus in airborne deployments. By working together, Metis and CRFS will be able to offer fully networked interoperable solutions using airborne HYPERION systems and ground-based RFeye systems.”
