REI's ANDRE is an advanced handheld broadband receiver designed to quickly detect and identify a wide range of transmissions, including RF signals, infrared, visible light, carrier current, and more. It is commonly used in security sweeps and counter-surveillance operations, making it an essential tool for professionals in the field.
With a wide range of antennas designed to receive transmissions in the frequency range from 10 kHz up to 12 GHz, ANDRE accurately and precisely detects and identifies various RF signals - from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to cell phones, microphones, cameras, and more. ANDRE automatically recognizes each attached antenna and displays the corresponding frequency band. This function simplifies signal analysis, enhancing the accuracy of your results and saving you valuable time while performing sweeps.
ANDRE features a signal strength histogram which displays RF levels over adjustable time intervals, which can range from 5 seconds to 24 hours. This allows you to observe differences between digital, analog, and burst signals, while setting personalized alert thresholds. When a significant signal is detected during your sweeping operations, you can choose between audio, tactile, and visual alert notifications to let you know.
The histogram display, along with the zoom view capability, offers a detailed analysis of each detected signal. Zoom mode enables you to focus on a 30 dB segment, making it easy to identify subtle changes in the RF environment,allowing detailed investigation and understanding of the collected data.
ANDRE's automatic generation of a signal list is another valuable feature. It captures the strongest signals detected and classifies them as either Friendly, Threat, or Unknown. Each recorded signal from the list is available for further inspection which simplifies the identification of signals, and lets you quickly assess the nature of the signals you encountered.
If you are interested in audio signals, ANDRE can demodulate and play back live analog audio. It records, stores and plays back ten second audio files, and displays signal strength graphs on the live audio screen.
The Data Logging function is also available on the ANDRE Deluxe model. You can record, download, and view important signal data, ensuring that valuable information is saved for any future reference.
ANDRE models include Deluxe, Advanced, and Basic option. Each model offers varying antennas, probes, and accessories, tailored to various user needs and applications. These models provide a range of solutions for detecting and analyzing RF signals, making ANDRE a versatile tool for a variety of environments and use cases.
In summary, the ANDRE Handheld Broadband Receiver is a highly useful and user-friendly device made for detecting, classifying, and analyzing various RF signals. Its compact size, intuitive interface, and comprehensive features make it an essential tool for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
