Merlin MK4 is a high-end TSCM spectrum analyser with cutting-edge design and performance. The Merlin MK4 is tailored for Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) use and features Shearwater’s own receiver. The Merlin MK4 has two quad-core computers built-in, these operate Linux for the digitiser and Windows for the scan.
Wile offering rapid deployment and portability, Merlin MK4 can give an operator quick access to several tools, such as a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth spectrum monitor, SDR Demodulation and mains monitoring.
The Merlin MK4 is an ultra-fast spectrum analyser with an acquisition rate of 52 Terahertz per second and has a bandwidth of up to 30 GHz.
Merlin MK4 spectrum analyser features multiple trace for RF mapping, a 3D waterfall view and the demodulation screen on the Merlin MK4 also includes a waterfall. Directional finding capability is provided to the Merlin MK4 via the included external directional handheld antenna that can also be tripod mounted. Other external antennas can also be used for more specific requirements.
The compact all in one unit Merlin MK4 houses the hot swappable battery that powers the unit when not connected to mains power. The Merlin MK4 can be controlled wirelessly via a tablet or wired via an ethernet cable with either a MAC or a PC.
