DRS upgrades its RedRock Integrated Geolocation system with multiple target acquisition features

Published on 16 September, 2013

DRS Technologies, Inc., a Finmeccanica Company an experienced leader in border security technology, announced significant upgrades to its popular RedRock Integrated Geolocation system with the addition of high-speed frequency scanning and multiple target acquisition features. The enhancements boost performance in the field when identifying targets that are using radio frequency signals.

With high-speed scanning, users are able to identify multiple targets offering a more rapid situational assessment within specified frequency ranges. The multiple target and direction-finding acquisition feature is able to collect location data on single or multiple targets that are using radio frequency signals, separate the results and generate distinctive “heat maps” giving users more exact location data for specific targets.

“These new capabilities add significant utility and value to the RedRock product and users will find the new features useful for both overt and covert missions,” said Jim Shea, Vice President of DRS Signal Solutions.

Used for a wide variety of border security, military and external airport security applications, the improved RedRock system builds on the popular platform with high-performance capabilities found on competing systems but at a dramatically lower cost to the customer.

“These new capabilities add significant utility and value to the RedRock product and users will find the new features useful for both overt and covert missions,” said Jim Shea, Vice President of DRS Signal Solutions.

“The speed and method in which the heat map reduces the predicted target area on the display is the absolute differentiator with this directional finding tool. The interface is so easy to use that a new operator can be up, running, and understand it within minutes,” according to a key U.S. government customer.

DRS Technologies’ RedRock units are small, lightweight and a fully integrated. Operating wirelessly between the sensor antenna and a portable computer, the low-profile of the sensor makes it ideal for counter surveillance and counter intelligence missions while mounted on a vehicle.

DRS has more than 20 years of proven operational experience developing and fielding border security technology, much of it in the most difficult and cluttered border environments in the world. It has designed, integrated, installed and helps operate systems in Egypt and Jordan, including sections where major refugee crises are currently underway.
