Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software | Receiver Differential Signal Analysis (RDSA) TM

We have had a number of users asking about, and eager to try the new RDSA TM feature, over the past couple of weeks, since its major announcement.

This innovative new, and very powerful feature is only accessible starting at v1.36-7-64-DEV, and within the next official installer release at v1.36xx.

We strongly recommend that all users update the software from the older 32-Bit application, to the recently released 64-Bit application, in preparation for the next exciting wave of never before seen feature sets that are only available, within the Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software.

Currently, we have posted the v1.35-17-64-DEV Beta code as the latest available software release on the Technical Support Group (TSG) Resource Centre, pending the official release of v1.36xx code, providing access to the new RDSA TM feature, and the new waterfall colour mapping capability, and more.

Along with the v1.36xx release, there will be a new Software Programming and Operation Manual (SPOM) TM released covering major recent new features and functionality. In fact, a considerable number of updates have been included in the latest user documentation.

The full installer for the v1.36xx release will be available shortly, as we are doing some final tweaking, and adding an exciting new, first in its class feature, within this release, which is yet to be officially announced.

Stay focused and stay tuned for the lasted word on this ground breaking capability.

We have however, posted a number of preliminary video clips, illustrating the basic RDSA TM feature at the spectrum trace level, to represent a single display overlay of spectrum trace data from multiple sources, within the target area in real-time.

The file examples were captured during software development of the Receiver Differential Signal Analysis (RDSA) TM feature, and can be found at http://www.kestreltscm.com/SISS007.htm for review, or download.

The resulting sample trace capture videos represent the INTERNAL facility Vs the EXTERNAL facility comparative in real-time across the famous Kestrel ® Dual Receiver Operation (DRO) TM.

One of the exciting capabilities of the RDSA TM feature is the ability to drop sub-band allocations onto a larger Range of Interest (ROI) independent receiver display.

For example, on a BB60C (9 kHz to 6 GHz) display, the operator can view an overlay from a second receiver for the ISM 900 band, and overlay the the ISM 900 band from a 3rd receiver, and also the ISM 2400 band, or all the cellular uplink bands creating a powerful new way to interpret complex spectrum data.

The deployment combinations are unlimited, within the RDSA TM capability, and supports the powerful Location Based Differential Signal Analysis (LDSA) TM, and Time Differential Signal Analysis (TDSA) TM for a total 3D rendering of the ambient RF spectrum environment inside, outside and geographically across network available SDR hardware resources.

The best part about the new RDSA TM capability, is that it is standard within the base software license, and not an optional module.

Currently, there are two (2) optional software modules, within the Kestrel ® architecture, with the first being the Automatic Export Control (AEC) TM | OPT AEC |, which permits, time periodic and trigger export of complex data sets for analytical evaluation.

The second optional software module is the Autonomous Measurement and Collection System (AMCS) TM | OPT AMCS | feature, that supports TCP/IP streaming of measurement data, and other essential parameters across a network.

Standards Based RF Certification | Certified Technical Operator (CTO)


Training is an essential component of any professional level software application, and operators are encouraged to build a custom training and support package into the software procurement process.

There is nothing like the Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software, for experienced technical operators to compare.

It is for this reason that training is essential to understanding the new methodology behind the software, in order to gain the most benefit during deployment in a modern, standards based, moving target threat model.

RF CERTIFICATION | KESTREL TSCM

Not sure what you are seeing in the above illustration? No problem, see you in our next training program!

Learn about the new threat reality, and apply advanced analytical concepts to build a clear and definitive picture of the ambient RF threat environment.

Utilizing the software, based on obsolete concepts, and perhaps past more familiar equipment resources, is not productive, and technical operators need to embrace a new deployment methodology, and focus on techniques designed around modern power agile, and other complex highly evasive threat technology.

Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC 2018)

Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., is pleased to be the primary sponsor and organizer of the 13th Annual Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC 2018), considered to be the longest running technical security professional development event, dedicated to Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM), Cyber-Security, and Counter-Espionage activities.

Every business environment in Canada unknowingly, has been, or is currently effected by technical security vulnerabilities and compromises, only a small number of these businesses take the appropriate due-diligence precautions, to minimize the millions of dollars annually in lost opportunity.

Espionage activities are on the increase worldwide, and companies who fail to take the appropriate steps to establish a formal technical security program, can easily lose their competitive edge, and suffer undedicated financial losses, share holder confidence, and become liable for the compromise of sensitive, and protected confidential third-party or customer information.

All business environments can benefit from a scalable TSCM program.

Learn about the risk threat environment, in today's moving target threat model, and gain insight into the illusive world of economic-espionage, and how it might be effecting your business.

There are fantastic opportunities at this year's conference event for exhibitors, presenters, and participants, within a 3 day professional development and networking event.

CTSC 2018 Conference Logo

Traditional approaches to security have centered on security silos, each of which implements separate and independent solutions targeted at a perceived threat. The resulting uncoordinated patchwork of incremental and ad hoc measures is inadequate in today’s complex and fluid environment – the inevitable gaps and weaknesses will be found and exploited by a determined and resourceful player.

CTSC 2018 will explore the complex multi-dimensional problems arising from the convergence of diverse technology and security challenges. Our future security will depend on security professionals going beyond a narrow scope of work, and technical specialists, working with other experts in a coherent and systematic defensive effort will become an essential methodology.

The technical threat model has continued to change in complexity, during the past decade, to a more fluid moving target threat model. The theme for CTSC 2018 is:

Implementing and Delivering a Unified Technical Security Program: A Challenge and Opportunity for the Technical Security Specialist (TSS) TM

Individuals, businesses and government organizations have become progressively more dependent on the increasingly complex and pervasive networks of communications and information processing systems that make up cyberspace.

However, the weaknesses and vulnerabilities of this growing and evolving system of systems have multiplied. It is hard enough to make complex systems work reliably in benign environments. In the real world, there are unlimited possibilities for cyber-attacks, to which a further dimension is added by the specter of state sponsored actors.

Contrast this situation with the realities facing technical security practitioners. On the one hand, there is a rapidly evolving and increasingly complex threat environment. On the other hand, it is frequently necessary to work within various administrative, economic and time constraints.

Furthermore, organizational leaders are often reluctant to recognize the magnitude of the threat and support adequate defensive measures, indeed, they may have already been successfully targeted without realizing it.

To be successful in this environment, technical security practitioners must be able to anticipate, identify and counter threats by drawing on an up-to-date understanding of the actors, their tools and methods and demonstrate leadership within their organizations.

More than ever, it is vital for them to take advantage of the expertise resident in the Technical Security community of practice through participation in relevant activities such as the annual Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC).

 The CTSC, now in its 13th year, is a focused technical security professional development event that brings together security specialists and others having a range of related interests.

Over a three-day period, participants will acquire relevant theoretical and practical knowledge, including opportunities for hands-on experience with Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM), a vital, but often over-looked, line of defense for safeguarding information in a technological world.

Participation in activities, such as the Canadian Technical Security Conference (CTSC), positions technical operators and knowledgeable clients to better identify potential and actual security compromises and respond appropriately.

It just might be an investment that will pay off by helping prevent or limit damage to your organization.
