Direction finding is inherently built into the both the Wideband Search and Intercept Receiver as well as the Multi-Channel Interception and Logging system receiver when they are connected to respective Direction Finding Antennas in HF and VHF/UHF bands. The bearing of the radio intercept is provided with respect to the respective monitoring station is provided in the operator interface.
The Shoghi Direction Finder is a specialist software application which is installed on a workstation in a central station which could be a Control Centre or one of the stations functioning as a Master DF Station. This DF software application can be connected to maximum of four Monitoring and DF stations through a WAN data link on terrestrial radio, VSAT or cable. The DF software application receieves the DF bearings of an RF transmission from a target radio emitter obtained from more than one of the four different Monitoring and DF receiver stations. This DF software application carries out the triangulation process to provide the location fixing for identification of location of target radio emitters on a digital map in an operational environment. The software is able to work with third party map visualization software like MapInfo to display line of bearing from respective Monitoring and DF stations GPS based locations which are plotted on the digital map integrated with MapInfo enabling the pinpointing of the location of the target emitters on their respective frequencies.
