Session Information

UAV Assisted RF Spectrum Analysis
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Our team has successfully implemented a commercially proven and highly useful UAV assisted spectrum analysis solution. The solution allows for maximizing efficiency, speed, safety, network penetration and effectiveness of spectrum analysis and cyber security in situations where altitude, distance, and anonymity are motivating factors. Our system is designated A.W.A.S.P.P. and stands for ​Aerial Wireless Analysis Surveillance Penetration Protection​. While our solution was designed to perform RF Analysis, it has further uses including offensive cyber security, projectile-free counter UAS operations including identification/classification/tracking/disabling, and wireless site surveying in frequencies ranging from 150 MHz to 3 GHz
