 Technical Papers | TSCM Newsletter

Technological advancements have created a powerful opportunity for experienced and motivated technical operators (aka spectrum warriors) to deploy extremely low cost, scalable, feature packed, and amazingly sophisticated Software Defined Radio (SDR) solutions.

Professional TSB certified Technical Security Specialists (TSS) TM operating within the realities of a modern moving target threat model, within the commercial, corporate, government, law enforcement, military and national security infrastructure across Canada and internationally benefit from this innovation science.

Those involved in responding to many of the known, unknown and developing technological threat levels of economic and state-sponsored espionage will agree unanimously that many different equipment resources, methods and techniques must be deployed to satisfy a wide variety of sweep requirements.

The Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software includes, not just spectrum analyzer capability, but provides focused scalability, multiple deployment strategies; all within a single easily deployed platform.

 

The Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software Speaks a Language of its Own!

 

The present day reality requires a bold, modern approach beyond the confines of obsolete concepts and equipment designs that fail to stand up to the needs of national security and the homeland security apparatus.

Our newsletters tackle industry misconceptions, emerging threat technology, respond to competitive noise, and provide a description of the powerful feature rich capability of the the Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software.

 

It must always be remembered that the technical operator (aka spectrum warrior) is the spectrum analyzer!
