The Tigerstrike®️ Technology
The Tigerstrike® uses proprietary technology that provides unparalleled, multi-level functionality. Our system accommodates both geo-location from a GPS equipped emergency transmitter and radio transmission source direction finding including device ID if available.
An internal three axis compass accurate to .1°, coupled with the narrow line of bearing generated from the Tigerstrike® antenna system provides the operator with approximately 2° line of bearing (LOB) in the horizontal plane and 5° in the vertical plane. This allows the targeting software to determine the potential beacon location with a minimum of readings.
On-board GPS allows map-based vector creation in relation to the Tigerstrike® unit’s position.
Our network functionality allows Tigerstrike® units networked on the same mission to be integrated into the target solution of each device. This network capability also provides integration with the Tigerstrike® Command Software at the Mission Search Base.
The use of 121.5/406 MHz emergency locator transmitters (ELTs) will remain in service in the SARSAT/COSPAS system until the RTCM committee, the FAA, ELT/EPIRB/PLB manufacturers, and other agencies worldwide can develop a replacement technology and put it into practical use. Firestorm™ Emergency Services is the only company producing geolocation technology and radio receivers flexible enough to track virtually any beacon in today’s world, no matter how advanced.
The TigerStrike™ 2100 121.5 MHz Antenna Receiver Combination allows you to hunt the standard ELT beacon up to 43.9 miles line of sight. With its highly sensitive and varied directional antenna system, the TigerStrike™ software takes into account the reflections and variations in surrounding topography and zeroes in on the strongest signal.
The unique qualities of the Tigerstrike™ system allow even the inexperienced operator to be as successful as the most skilled radio transmitter hunter, with minimal training.
