Training and Certification Opportunity | January 29, 2017 to February 12, 2017

Time is running out to register for the up coming training dates.

If you are interested in attending, please contact our office to secure your place in class at our Resident Training Centre (RTC).

There are three (3) primary training paths to consider at Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., depending on each participants background and knowledge.

Whether just starting out or looking for professional development training, the one constant is that no matter your skill level, there is always something new to learn in an industry where virtually every aspect of what we do changes on a daily basis, and last years training is simply last years training.

Kestrel TSCM | Resident Training Centre (RTC)

Keeping pace with a moving target threat level demands new and powerful industry leading resources such as the Kestrel TSCM Professional Software and in-turn requires professional level training to gain the most benefit.

Developing new skill sets and a better understanding of a moving target threat model deployment and methodology is an essential element in achieving and maintaining technical competence, something PDTG Inc., takes very seriously in our training and certification offerings.


Sunday January 30, 2017 to February 12, 2017 |

14-Day | Technical Security Specialist (TSS) | Designate Certification Program | Ideal for those just starting out in the technical security field, and excellent for seasoned professionals looking to modernize their approach to conducting technical security sweeps and inspections. This program covers virtually everything under the banner of technical security and includes the 5-day Technical Analyst Certification (TAC) program, and includes the 3-day Kestrel TSCM Professional Software | Technical Operator Certification training. This extensive program brings significant value in the development of theoretical and operational deployment skills.


Monday January 30, 2017 to Friday February 03, 2017 |

5-Day | Technical Analyst Certification (TAC) | The program is designed for both current technical operators and those individuals and entities considering procurement of the Kestrel TSCM Professional Software. The program not only includes full Kestrel TSCM Professional Software | Operator Certification, but also includes two (2) additional days dedicated to Kestrel Analytics TM as part of the advanced Operator Certification for the Kestrel Software, taking participants deep into the capability of the software. Understanding the unique design of the Kestrel software in a modern threat environment, is essential to gaining the most benefit from your software investment. Learn how the software can be utilized beyond basic collection and spectrum analysis, with the application of Kestrel Analytics TM.


Monday January 30, 2017 to February 01, 2017 |

3-Day | Kestrel TSCM Professional Software | Technical Operator Certification | This is perhaps the most essential basic training for anyone currently utilizing the Kestrel software, or might be anticipating procurement in the future. This program instructs participants based on a new moving target threat model, leaving the competition in the, "that's so 1970's" mind-set that many operators still embrace, believing they only require a flashlight and ladder to conduct their inspections. Software defined Radio (SDR) technology has radically disrupted the old, out-date and obsolete threat model, essentially left over from the cold-war era. There are significant new offensive RF methods and techniques being utilized by individuals and state sponsored players, conducting illegal economic espionage, and it is essential that technical operators place greater importance on identifying and validating the presence of all RF signatures present within the target area over time. Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM) TM is the only means available to do this effectively. The Kestrel TSCM Professional Software has proven to be an industry disruptive technology, with a fresh approach that focuses on a modernized global threat model, and the reality of Probability of Detection (POD) by the numbers, as part of a new approach to Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM), supplemented with Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM) TM .

Time Differential Signal Analysis (TDSA)

We have been diligently testing the pre-release TDSA feature this past week at our Research and Development Training Centre (RDTC) in Alberta.

During one (1) of our many pre-release experiments, we established a runtime Trace Limit Alarm of 200,000 traces, or (approximately 13 hours of collection) from 9 kHz to 6 GHz at 20 kHz RBW.

After collection terminated on trace limit alarm, the TDSA filter was applied from 0000 hours in 30 minute TDSA time blocks, clearly identifying a curious 200 kHz signal event at 3.1926 GHz, within a defined number of time blocks from | 0100 - 0130 | 0300 - 0330 | 0500 - 0530 | 0700 - 0730 | 0900 - 0930 | 1100 - 1130 |.

The result is precisely what our Time Differential Signal Analysis (TDSA) milestone was designed and engineered to achieve, by adding a new capability to the Kestrel Analytics TM methodology.

The pattern is clearly identifiable as a burst transmission that appeared a regular intervals every 2 hours between 0100 and 1100 hours, at | 0100 | 0300 | 0500 | 0700 | 0900 | 1100 | within a 30 minute TDSA window.

The technique of reapplying the TDSA Filter can be utilized to further refine the signal event burst time line for even greater time line accuracy.

The 30 minute | PERIOD | or TDSA Filter of 30 minutes, dynamically captures all peak data within the applied filter and builds a TDSA comparative trace.

The above TDSA plot image represents a 30 minute TDSA filter, utilized to generate a trace level comparative, based on time, rather than location.

Selecting specific TDSA ICONS allows the operator to analyze a single location, extended runtime session, against operator defined time blocks and generate trace level comparative trace data.

The above TDSA plot image represents a clear pattern of bursts that only appear every two (2) hours as indicated by technical operator enabled | TDSA ICONS | representing the Signal of Interest (SOI).

2017 Professional Development Summary | A Year of Opportunity!

2016 was a very busy year for PDTG Inc., with assignments, across Canada, France, United Kingdom, United states of America, Belgium, Sweden, and Singapore in support of corporate, government, law-enforcement, military, and national security apparatus globally.

2016 was also extremely busy for sales and support of the the Kestrel TSCM Professional Software, now flying high in 27 countries worldwide.

We ended our news and information briefings for 2016, stressing the importance of the requirement, recognition and understanding of the necessity to respond to a new, and rapidly changing global threat model, and will begin 2017 with the same important message to technical operators.

The threat model, has dramatically changed over the past 10 years, but never as rapidly as it has during the past couple of years, with virtually everything wireless hitting the market at the consumer level.

The Radio Frequency (RF) phase of a TSCM electronically assisted sweep has become significantly more complex and requires a new approach methodology, to minimize or mitigate the risk and liability of conducting Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) assignments, from both the end-users and technical operators perspective.

Findings and non-findings all need to be validated against the vast unknowns inherent in providing Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) assignments.

Professional development is the means and starting point for those that recognize the necessity of keeping current with the latest concepts, techniques, and a moving target threat model that can radically determine the outcome of any technical security inspection.

TSCM | ISM 900 BAND
It is essential to continuously monitor the on-going changes in the spectrum band allocation process to better understand what signal types to expect across the Range of Interest (ROI). The various ISM Band allocations are complex elements of the spectrum, with a wide range of signal types and uses that often overlap and share the same spectrum space. Join us for the next Technical Analyst Certification (TAC) program to learn more about the Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum.
There are three (3) primary training paths to consider at Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., depending on each participants background and knowledge.
