Personal Greeting

Defeat RF Interference

The SH-60S-AOA provides the ability to triangulate the location of an interferer on a map for signals between 9 kHz and 6 GHz. Integrating digital maps, GPS location and signal strength vectoring, the SignalHawk AOA provides an easy-to-use interface to pinpoint potential in-band interferers, “rogue” broadcast locations and dead spots.

Field engineers, technicians, wireless equipment manufacturers, service providers, contractors, and military personnel can triangulate the source of an interferer by utilizing our AOA (Angle of Arrival) technology. Being highly portable allows the user to go remote locations to accurately pinpoint the signal origination. In today’s crowded RF spectrum this cutting edge technology can quickly and efficiently stop unwanted, accidental or prohibited interface that can degrade RF communication or completely disrupt signal quality and system performance.


  • Leverages mapping technology from OpenStreetMap allowing users to triangulate the source.
  • Two level internal preamplifier.
  • View the spectrum with trace display, spectrogram display, or both.
  • Easy-to-use, intuitive menus with multi-touch operation.
  • More than 2x faster sweep times than the competition with multi-touch technology.
  • High-resolution, full-color display for indoor or outdoor viewing.
  • Rugged and weather resistant.
  • 5 hours of continuous battery operation.
  • Includes the Bird RF Meter App for interoperability with a wide range of Bird Field sensors
