Improved suitability for mobile tasks - now available with ICAS 12!

Supported receiver SIR 2115

As part of its continued product development, PLATH has now published its new ICAS release. ICAS 12 offers a range of important new features that increase efficiency when carrying out mobile tasks. It also shows how flexible ICAS can be in allowing the connection of additional sensors from different vendors.

New features for mobile operation support

ICAS 12 provides an easy way to integrate external data such as reference time, position and heading. This allows ICAS to be part of larger systems and offers new opportunities for executing manned and unmanned operations. Even use cases in which mobile platforms have no data connection to a technical centre, possibly for long periods of time, are now easy to implement. ICAS allows unattended operations and connection-less data exchange with other ICAS sites.

After collecting data, it is possible to replay and process wideband recordings in the technical centre with ICAS 12. This keeps the mobile platform light because the computing power required for advanced signal processing can be concentrated in the technical centre. Furthermore, data transfer between sites can be optimized by excluding confidential or irrelevant data from being exchanged. These new features offer greater flexibility by using different data transfer options and can be very helpful when exchanging data with other organisations.

Customizable frequency list management

With this ICAS release it is possible to add custom fields – such as the operation name, flight number, verification date etc. – to the frequency list management. Depending on individual workflows, all these new fields can then be handled just like the standard ones, sorted in columns or hidden. Frequency lists can also be imported and exported in CSV format to better integrate with typical office tools such as Excel – so efficiency and ease of use can be increased even more with these new capabilities.

Newly supported receivers and hopper detection

ICAS 12 now supports the PLATH SIR 2115 HF-/VUSHF wideband receiver by manual and automatic control, scan mode, wideband IF processing and support for the 20 internal DDC channels with flexible channel bandwidths. The wideband I/Q data output provided by the SIR 2115 may also be forwarded for use by a hopper detector. One of its advantages over direction-finder-based hopper detection is its very precise time domain measurement (such as burst length, inter hop pause time e.g.) which allows operators to easily distinguish hopper signal categories in the ICAS client.

More and more receivers from other vendors are being supported by ICAS – with ICAS 12 now integrating the EB500 narrowband receiver from Rohde & Schwarz in addition to the EM100. This unique vendor-independent capability of ICAS offers the freedom to choose the right receiver for each specific task.  

If you are already a member of the ICAS community and would like to benefit from the latest features, we would be happy to tell you about the advantages of our comprehensive in-service support. With this, you receive the latest updates and upgrades for maximum performance of your system.
