HIAWATHA, Iowa, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Crystal Group Inc., a trusted designer/manufacturer of combat-proven rugged commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom computers, displays, switches, and storage devices, announced the availability of a new white paper that provides system engineers with an overview to understand why ruggedized electronics are critical components of Direction Finding and Locating Systems.
The ability to detect, analyze and locate sources of radio-frequency signals has become increasingly important in many use cases. Direction finding and locating systems, also known as radio direction finding devices, are typically used in aerospace and defense, public safety, homeland security, law enforcement, and other fields to detect and locate electronic signals.
The white paper, "Direction Finding and Locating Systems Require Rugged Electronics," outlines the latest rugged computer and network technology for deployment in hostile environments of extreme temperature and vehicle-caused shock, including an explanation of how signal detection technology works and the potential benefits.
Furthermore, the white paper describes how Crystal Group and technology partner, Elesia S.p.A of Italy, provided SAAB Medav Technologies (SMT) with rugged computer and networking components as part of SMT's complete direction finding and location system. The comprehensive, ground-based system features transportable shelters, antennas, rugged electronic gear, and processing software that can withstand years of use in extreme conditions.
