MIAMI & COOKEVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HEICO Corporation (NYSE HEI.A and HEI) today announced that its Electronic Technologies Group acquired 75% of the ownership of Cookeville, TN-based Research Electronics International, LLC (“REI”) in an all cash transaction. REI’s two owners/managers retained the remaining 25% ownership. No further financial details were disclosed.
New antenna extends frequency detection range to 12 GHz
COOKEVILLE, TN – June, 2018 — Research Electronics International (REI), a leading manufacturer of counter-surveillance equipment, announces the release of the ANDRE Deluxe Near-Field Detection Receiver. The ANDRE detects signal activity and displays a histogram of signal strength over time. It is a handheld broadband receiver capable of detecting covert electronics including GSM bugs, microphones, cameras, RF and Wi-Fi transmitters, and mobile phones. Applications may include:
- RF emissions detection
- Prison contraband
- RF spectrum management
- Executive protection
- Technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM)
- Intelligence protection
- Fraud detection at exam testing sites
The ANDRE’s success at detecting and locating the source of RF, infrared, visible light, carrier current and other types of transmissions has expanded in the new Deluxe model with several additional antennas/probes, accessories, software and operational features.
The newly-launched ANDRE Advanced Near-field Detection Receiver from Research Electronics International is helping prevent fraud at exam testing sites. Originally designed for counter surveillance operations and intelligence protection, the ANDRE is now also helping educators prevent cheating during examinations by detecting covert electronic transmissions.
According to news reports out of Brazil*, eleven individuals were arrested last year for using electronic devices during the high-profile National High School Examination (Enem). This year, the Ministry of Education will be using ANDRE to locate and identify participants who attempt to use electronic devices during the exam who may have circumvented inspection by metal detectors.
The new ORION 900 HX Non-Linear Junction Detector (NLJD) from REI detects electronic semi-conductor components through dense materials such as bricks, concrete, and soil.
The longer 900 MHz wavelength does better at detecting older, less refined circuitry and also penetrating building and construction materials compared to the shorter wavelength of the 2.4 GHz model, which is better suited for detecting modern, surface mounted circuitry in normal office environments.
The TALAN Telephone and Line Analyzer provides many automated tests in a single product to detect and locate illicit surveillance devices (wiretaps and electronic surveillance/eavesdropping products) on telephones, communication and other types of wiring, and is the only product of its kind in existence.
Developing technologies and growing acceptance of VoIP telephones have also brought increased opportunity for exploitation. A VoIP phone can be programmed to pass VoIP data, even when it appears inactive; for example, a VoIP phone can be compromised by someone with network access (e.g. IT personnel, hacker) and the ability to turn the microphone on and off, effectively collecting and transmitting room audio undetected.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Research Electronics International (REI) is pleased to announce the ANDRE™ Advanced Near-field Detection Receiver, a hand-held broadband receiver that detects and assists in locating nearby RF, infrared, visible light, carrier current and other types of transmitters.
The ANDRE detects signal activity in its vicinity and displays changes in signal strength over time, allowing users to quickly locate the source of transmissions. The ANDREs frequency counter provides quick identification of the signal frequency and outputs additional information to an automatic signal list generator.
Antenna probes included with the ANDRE can be used to sweep rooms and objects in search for known, unknown, illegal, disruptive, or interfering transmitters from 10 kHz to 6 GHz.
A 3.5 inch touch screen displays all of the operation controls and frequency activity. The frequency chart provides advantages over other RF detectors by showing rising and falling signal strength over time. Eight displayed time intervals can be selected ranging from 5 seconds to 24 hours. This helps identify pulsing signals and shows historical peaks, to ensure nothing will be missed. Manual and automatic threshold settings notify the user when a signal exceeds defined strength levels with haptic, audible, and visual alerts.
REI announces that, following a commodity jurisdiction determination issued by the U.S. Department of State – Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (“DDTC”), the REI OSCOR Blue spectrum analyzer (8 GHz and 24 GHz models) is no longer subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulation (“ITAR”) jurisdiction. Effective immediately, the OSCOR Blue is subject to the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”) administered by the Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security (“BIS”) and has been assigned to Export Control Classification Number (“ECCN”) 3A992.A. The OSCOR Blue now has the same export control status as the OSCOR Green spectrum analyzer.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Algood, Tennessee, USA – January 6, 2016 – Research Electronics International (REI) recently released firmware updates to the OSCOR Spectrum Analyzers that introduce special new features.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Algood, TN., 17 September 2015 –Research Electronics International (REI) is pleased to release a new video pole camera – the VPC 2.0 – for investigating areas above drop ceilings, behind immovable objects, around corners or other difficult to reach areas, especially in dark environments.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Algood, Tennessee, U.S.A. – July 6, 2015 – Research Electronics International (REI) has introduced a new Non-Linear Junction Detector (NLJD) – the ORION 2.4 HX. The new ORION 2.4 HX compliments the standard ORION 2.4, introduced in 2013, with several distinguishing features including a 3.3W model and a higher 6.6W transmit power model, both with built in touch screen display.
