LOCATE antenna array

What is LOCATE? 

Global scale Direction Finding

LOCATE components are in operational use at numerous sites around the world, including both new installations and mid-life upgrades to existing ones. For example, the AX-19 ‘Pusher’ High Frequency Direction Finding system can be enhanced by adding the latest Super-Resolution Direction Finding (SRDF) and Adaptive Digital Beamforming (ADBF) technology.

Our LOCATE product range includes antennas, receivers and processing software which can be combined to create a system designed for the exact specific application.
