Rio™ Signals Intelligence System

Product Specifications

Rio SIGINT capabilities meet rigorous mission requirements for small, manned and unmanned intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms. Rio intercepts, locates, monitors and records communications signals using a common set of software applications.  

  • Open architecture design supports third-party special signals applications
  • Real-time audio recording and playback
  • Background spectral search (2 — 6,000 MHz)
  • A three-dimensional display of the area of interest is provided
  • Scalable commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware
  • Configurable size, weight and power (SWaP) enables SIGINT applications on small, manned and unmanned airborne platforms
  • Automated, continuous background spectral search with simultaneous signal monitoring and recording
  • Emitter geolocation determined from lines of bearing over time or time difference of arrival (TDOA) and frequency difference of arrival (FDOA) techniques
  • Digital adoptive beamforming for 30dB interference mitigation on multiple inter-ferors
  • Local or remote operation using transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) network data link using as little as 300 Kbps bandwidth
  • Joint Interface Control Document (JICD) 4.2.1-compliant:  Interoperable with Network-Centric Collaborative Targeting (NCCT) and Theater Net-Centric Geolocation (TNG) sensor fusion networks 
  • Thin client, web browser architecture, supporting single-operator control of multiple sensors via separate windows or browser tabs, as well as access to control of a single sensor by multiple users
  • Wartime and peacekeeping tasks
  • Monitoring and geolocation of target communications
  • Cue imagery sensors for visual identification
  • Customizable cues for other sensor types
  • Rio is a TRL 9 product that has been exported to multiple countries
  • Rio Nino and Rio Flex can provide a significant SIGINT capability to many SWaP-challenged small manned and unmanned platforms
  • Rio Grande provides additional compute and tuner resources to support more simultaneity, more operators, more missions
  • The Rio software suite can be configured and scaled as needed
  • All Rio software is unclassified and developed using Research and Development funds
  • Development and integration of new capabilities is continuous
  • Rio has an approved software licensing and product pricing structure
