Radio frequency (RF) interference and emissions can cause disruptions in critical U.S. government communications that must remain available at all times in support of national defense and security. To help protect the fidelity of these frequencies, Alion’s RF engineers built a unique solution to monitor the electromagnetic spectrum and alert users to interference or jamming.

This solution combines RF monitoring capabilities with commercial technologies to identify and pinpoint threats to crucial communications systems, along with complementary software to characterize, record, and locate signals of interest— a capability that distinguishes our approach. The result is a solution that provides customers with an innovative method for RF spectrum monitoring, while helping to protect essential government communications systems that are vital to national security. Several of these distinct monitoring systems are now in place across the U.S. and around the world.
