Autonomous Measurement Collection System (AMCS) | Sub-System

Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., is pleased to confirm that our Technical Research and Standards Group (TRSG) TM has developed a new and powerful disruptive Software Defined Radio (SDR) capability deep within the coding architecture of the the Kestrel TSCM ® Professional Software.

Autonomous Measurement Collection System (AMCS) TM | Component within the Kestrel TSCM ®  Professional Software allows the application to operate “headless” in an embedded computing environment.

This is perhaps described as one of the most powerful features ever developed for professional development requirements and is configured from a Kestrel Configuration Script (KCS) TM file located within the application installation directory.

The Kestrel ® application will create all the project files and necessary configuration, to be able to immediately begin runtime collection activity.

Client applications may be connected to the Kestrel ® software via a TCP/IP socket interface connection, to obtain the extracted data stream, and basic configuration information from the Kestrel ® application.

Limited control is also offered to client applications.

The AMCS comprises of a powerful sub-system within the Kestrel ® application.

This sub-system is enabled when Kestrel is started with a valid Activation Security Key (ASK) TM that contains the “AMCS” capability.

On initial connection of a receiver to Kestrel ® , a license key request will be generated in the form of a Challenge and Response (CRC) TM code, and presented to the technical operator.

When the CRC code is provided to the Technical Support (TSG) of Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., this will be converted into an Activation Security Key (ASK) TM license enabling the AMCS capability.

This Activation Security Key (ASK) TM may then be installed into Kestrel ® , enabling that instance of Kestrel ® on that machine and receiver, to operate with the AMCS capability.

Only one (1) receiver on a subject machine requires an AMCS key to enable AMCS operation across all receivers operating with that instance of Kestrel ® .

The AMCS sub-system allows Kestrel ® to be operated in a stand-alone fashion.

A configuration file allows autonomous collection to be set up and initiated on application start.

Client applications can then connect to Kestrel ® and obtain a continuous data feed for the specified bands or channels of interest.

Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM) | Setting up a kestrel ® instance and receiver at a remote location, permits a continuous monitoring data feed, can be obtained at a remote location. Kestrel ® , operating in this mode is suitable for operation on an embedded PC platform, providing a low-cost and very powerful remote monitoring solution.

Data Feed Integration | The remote feed configuration, utilizes an open "xml" style format allowing easy integration with additional data feeds to provide a richer data stream, and synthesizing multiple sources into a single data feed.

Alarm and Alerting Integration | The integration of the AMCS capabilities with the unique alarm and alerting architecture within Kestrel ® , provides the capability of obtaining RSSM TM data, when specific events of interest occur within the ambient RF spectrum environment, thereby reducing the data transmission load and providing advanced actionable intelligence relating to spectral activity.

Distributed (Managed) Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM) TM | Integrating multiple instances of Kestrel ® with AMCS and integrating their independent data feeds, powerful RSSM TM solutions can be easily implemented at the facility level, or across national and international geographical locations.

Black Box Integretion | The ability to utilize RF spectra as a sensory input to an existing black box system, or build powerful analytical solutions can be realized when the AMCS data feed is combined with other sensory inputs, including GPS, speed, altitude, temperature, RF interference, and other required parameters.

Kestrel ® Log-Periodic (KLP) Antenna Kit

Our Technical Research and Standards Group (TRSG) is very pleased to announce that we have now released a new antenna product, designed specifically for the TSCM role.

The Kestrel ® Log Periodic (KLP) antenna kit is yet another example of a Canadian designed and manufactured product, now available under the Kestrel ® brand.

Our ability to change the dynamics of the industry and bring innovative, new low cost products to the TSCM industry, is once again realized with this announcement.

Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., is strongly committed to advancing the art and science of technical security, through continuous product innovation, industry participation, and are known for implementing a powerful standards based approach to a moving target threat model.

The typical equipment life cycle has significantly decreased from 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago, as equipment manufacturers were not keeping pace with the proliferation of threat technology entering the market place from basic consumer electronics to sophisticated espionage tools.

Many products, simply were modernized from a packaging perspective, with the same obsolete detection electronics under the hood. Unfortunately, is is still happening today with many of the foreign manufactured products.

High cost equipment resources that fail to meet, in many cases, even the basic expected level of design and feature structure have flooded the foreign market place and offer little in the way of innovation, or have features that provide a meaningful impact on the technical security industry.

The KLP kit is an example of dedicated research, extensive testing, careful design and engineering, a powerful multi-tasking capability, travel friendliness, and lower cost.

In-fact, our KLP kit, is 3 to 4 times lower in cost than a number of competitive products that are not even designed for Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM), offer little or no technical training, have extremely poor user manuals, and fail to integrate best practice concepts into the overall design.

Our motto is build it simple, with a full feature design, make it operator centric, travel and budget friendly.

Kestrel Log periodic Antenna Kit | TSCM | SIGINT

The KLP antenna kit is just $795.00 CAD and contains a number of custom engineered components that are packed in a light weight, travel friendly soft pouch that is multi-mission ready, for use during operator assisted TSCM assignments, or for Remote Spectrum Surveillance and Monitoring (RSSM).

The contents of the kit include all of the above components that are designed to provide scalability, flexibility and a wide  range of deployment options. Our durable soft pouch provides additional space for other small antennas, cables and connectors.

Our user-manual provides product set-up and familiarization instructions and as expected provides technical information about the workings of a Log Periodic Antenna (PLA) to gain the most benefit from practical deployment.

The system can be deployed as a stationary  RF spectrum analysis antenna, and quickly transition to a walk-about directional antenna for signal localization, minimizing the requirement for a separate broadband receiver and offer the the technical operator the same signal and reference levels on a familiar display without loss of signal acquisition during the transition.

The advantage of transitioning from a collection mission to a direction finding mission on the same equipment resource and user-interface, takes the complexity out of the picture and returns operational control and efficiency to the technical operator.

The heart of our KLP antenna system is a custom manufactured, proprietary | Quick Connect Mechanism (QCM) | and combination pistol grip and tripod for maximum deployment flexibility.

We are excited to have added a new addition to he KLP kit, which includes a new antenna under the Kestrel ® brand.

The | Kestrel Vision Antenna (KVA) | can be deployed for walk-about direction finding or continuous collection for low profile assignments.

The KVA antenna is provided in the KLP kit as a standard included item.

The KPL kit is an ideal companion for use with the KestrelPrey III | Advanced RF Locator, powered by the award winning, industry leading, Kestrel ® TSCM Professional Software.

The KLP antenna kit can be utilized with any spectrum analyzer or receiver and is terminated with quad shielded low noise cable and a strain relief SMA (M) 50 ohm connector.

The mighty Kestrel ® TSCM Professional Software has been delivering innovation since 2009 with worldwide deployment in 28 countries for the TSCM industry, corporate, government, law-enforcement, military, and the security apparatus.

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.

Time Differential Signal Analysis (TDSA) Kestrel TSCM

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.

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.

Developing new skill sets and deployment methodology is an essential element in achieving and maintaining technical competence, something PDTG Inc., takes very seriously in our training offerings.

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, which by design 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 skills.

5-Day | Technical Analyst Certification (TAC) | program is designed for both current 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 getting the most value out of your software investment. Learn how the software can be utilized beyond basic collection and spectrum analysis, with the application of Kestrel Analytics TM.

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 the new technical 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 .

Kestrel TSCM | Wireless Cellular Detection

2017 is an excellent year to plan on attending any on our modern, technically advanced, instructor led classroom oriented, training and certification programs. Our training extends your professional credibility in a rapidly changing Technical Security (TSEC) industry, and perhaps more importantly, a modern moving target global threat model.
