Supported Receivers

Overview 

Spectrum Sentry Net is a comprehensive suite of software tools designed for government, law enforcement and professional applications. Tools are provided for maintaining frequency databases, advanced monitoring, recording and analysis.

Comprehensive Receiver Support

Spectrum Sentry Net supports a wide range of radio receivers, including models from Cubic, DRS (WJ) and Ten-Tec as well as AOR, Icom®, Uniden® and others.

Advanced Intercept Logging

Spectrum Sentry Net offers advanced logging and recording features. Received audio is recorded to hard disk and indexed by frequency, ID code, time and date. Signal activity data can also be recorded in several different formats, including comma delimited (CSD), ASCII listing format, DBASE and binary.

Advanced Intercept Archival Features

Spectrum Sentry Net includes an archival feature that allows the operator to review recorded intercepts, saving only those of interest while deleting the remainder. The archive feature includes a catalog so that intercepts can be organized and stored according to operator-defined criteria.

Digital Playback Enhancement

Spectrum Sentry Net includes the Digital Audio Studio, a full-featured audio playback facility that includes speech enhancement, sub-segment selection, annotation and wave export tools. In addition, the operator can work with selected portions of recorded audio for playback and enhancement.

Remote Monitoring

Spectrum Sentry Net can connect to both local and remote radio receivers using a variety of connectivity choices. Local receivers can be connected via serial (RS-232), USB and IEEE-488 ports. Remote receivers can be connected using terminal server devices, dial-up modems, remote monitoring appliances or remote servers. With the remote appliance or server, high quality audio and receiver control functions are provided over standard networking infrastructure. See the Remote Monitoring Appliance data sheet for more information.

Workgroup Features

Spectrum Sentry Net has built-in workgroup features that allow multiple radio monitoring workstations to share information, receivers and audio switching equipment over a local area network. Configuration data can be entered on one workstation and automatically propagated to other workstations in the group.

Multiple Receiver Support

Each Spectrum Sentry Net workstation can control up to thirty-two receivers simultaneously. The number of receivers supported may also limited by available hardware, such as sound card channels or serial ports.
