lynx location system
The Lynx Location System (LLS) is a highly portable
wideband geo-location system that locates RF signal
sources using a Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) technique.
The system is configured with the minimum of three or
more geographically dispersed sensors that are linked
together through a wireless infrastructure (or any TCP/IP
link). The LSS is a flexible platform that can detect a wide
variety of RF signals. It is ideal for persistent monitoring
and tracking missions where unattended operation is
crucial. Whether in a permanent or portable deployment, the
Lynx Location System provides accuracy and coverage area.
The LLS can optionally be configured with tripods, tower
mounting hardware, wireless infrastructure, power sources,
and everything required to setup quickly and to start
generating results.
• Integrated Tuner:
• 20 MHz to 3,000 MHz
• Bandwidth:
• Configurable Bandwidth
• Integrated Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA)
• Signals of Interest (SOI)
• Variety of SOIs
• Wide and Narrow Band
• Intuitive Operator Interface Hosted on Laptop
• Single Operator Interface can control up to 16 sensors
• Externally Taskable
• Accepts external tips
• TCP/IP Interconnect
• Standard TCP/IP Interface
The Lynx Location System consists of
three interactive subsystems:
• Compact Ruggedized Unattended
(CRU) Sensor
• Control Station
• Communications Network
The CRU sensor integrates a tuner,
collection processor, AM/FM
demodulator and a GPS receiver into
a single rugged compact
environmentally sealed package that
is suitable for a variety of harsh
deployment environments. The Control
Station provides command and
control to the network of up to 16
Remote Sensors through an intuitive Windows®-based
Graphical User Interface (GUI). Additionally, the GUI hosts
Frequency range
Signal Solution’s proprietary location algorithms within the
Instantaneous bandwidth
TDOA location engine and also provides the flexibility to host
customer proprietary TDOA/other location algorithms. The
Communications Network is TCP/IP and ties the Remote
Sensors to the Control Station using COTS equipment. Since
Receiver sensitivity
the protocol is standard TCP/IP, customer existing infrastructure
can also be used. In the event that no infrastructure is

available, Signal Solutions has an optional mobile cellular
Data interconnect
HSDPA or a fixed 5.8 GHz wireless interconnect.
