One system - any mission
The RESOLVE RN Manpack can be deployed in a number of configurations including:

On-the-march: Immediate threat warning for the
dismounted soldier
The on-the-march configuration provides the dismounted operator
with an unrivalled threat warning and direction finding capability
RESOLVE Manpack in this configuration is unique in that it operates
while on the march, stationary or prone. Key to this is the QuadTac
Mini or QuadTac antenna which can be operated with the array
elements extended for maximum sensitivity,or closed to reduce the
visual signature. A ruggedised PDA allows the operator to view the
tactical DF plot, waterfall or spectral displays and input additional target
information while maintaining tactical awareness.

Next generation lightweight on-the-march capability
The operationally proven RESOLVE EW manpack system is now
available in a lightweight, self-contained system specifically for operating
whilst 'on-the-march'.Without compromising capability, the RESOLVE
lightweight manpack system delivers immediate threat warning,
electronic overwatch and single sensor geolocation, yet weighs just

The Static configuration can be deployed such that the operator is colocated with the sensor element or remotely up to 50 metres from the
antenna for covert operations.

Maritime
RESOLVE can be rapidly installed into any maritime platform to provide
single sensor intercept and geolotation,using running fix techniques.The
mast sensor can be remoted via fibre optic cable therefore minimising
cable loss.With a long heritage in RF modelling on naval platforms
we can advise on optimal antenna locations and de-risk any potential
coupling issues. Commonality of sensors in the land and mar'time
environments ensures interoperability which is essential to maximise
operational effectiveness.

and strategic levels.

Electronic warfare system

Eitended range
Mast mounted
A range of static mast mounted electronic surveillance solutions are
available to meet a variety of operational scenarios. Covering the full
detection range and with installations from 7m to 50m these antenna
configurations extend both the range and sensitivity of a RESOLVE
system.

Mast Sensor
The RESOLVE Mast Sensor has been developed for use on large
masts (7m - 50m).This configuration houses the RESOLVE AGS unit
(the sensor at the heart of the system), switch box andVQuad within
the radome (not shown). Digitising at the antenna allows for increased
height while avoiding RF loss on the cable.
An optional addition to the Mast Sensor; MastQuad provides high
sens'iivlty,seamless coverage from 20MHz to 3GHzThe folding dipole
design is easy to erect and provides increased sens'itivlty and DF
accuracy at the lower operating frequencies.

VQuad
TheVQuad can be mast mounted, radome protected, and elevated up
t o seven meters or mounted permanently onto any platform.VQuad
is based on the field proven and award winning QuadTac, however;
there is no requirement for the dipole arms t o close which allows for
larger dipole elements to be used. This provides increased sensiivlty at
the lower operating frequencies.

The latest generation AGS3 (Acquisition and Geolocation Sensor) is
equipped with a DC input range of 10.5 - 32V allowing compatibility
with vehicles, and low noise amplifiers maximising range and coverage
for surveillance and geolocation.

Real-time exploitation
Converting collection to intelligence
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides operators with intercept
data in real-time.
The RESOLVE system is controlled using the ruggedised laptop running
a suite of intuitive,integrated applications which enables the operator
to execute complex tasks.The Mission Information System provides a
dynamic and immediate operating picture presentingthe intelligence in
a format that is easily interpreted.

Features
Intuitive interface
Powerful Mapping
Wide and narrow band survey

Networked Ops (chat file transfer; event sharing)
Position fix of intercepted signals

Mast mounted

Non-kinetic strike
The Electronic Attack subsystem provides a software integrated,hostile
communications denial capabilrty Using powerful software applicationsthe
operator is able to balance exploitation and denial ensuring that disruption
to hostile Q is optimised.
This optional capabilrty is based around commercial off the shelf
EA equipment and is controlled from the ruggedised laptop using a
dedicated EA application.
