WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. – LocusUSA, a leader in the area of RF (radio frequency) capture for radio analysis and location will officially launch DiagnostX: an Over-the-Air Radio Analyzer Service in January 2018. This service will enable LMR managers to have their active radios evaluated for performance and alignment, over-the-air in real-time without user intervention.
How It Works
LocusUSA will provide the monitoring equipment and manage the data from their Network Operations Center in Florida. Once the scans have been completed, a comprehensive report will be sent to the customer showing the alignment characteristics by radio ID. The detailed monthly report will pinpoint the radios that have “Failed”, “Passed” and “Never Received” based on customer-defined thresholds. This service supports P25 Trunked, P25 Conventional and Legacy systems. It can be acquired with existing maintenance or operational funds.
Benefits of the DiagnostX: an Over-the-Air Radio Analyzer Service:
- It is a cost-effective way to identify radios in need of service, while well-aligned ones can remain deployed in the field
- Ensures optimal system performance
- Resolves the issue of whether it is the network or the subscriber radios at fault
- It is a nonintrusive, proactive radio maintenance management tool
“It has been an accepted practice with LMR networks to check the alignment of each radio annually. Due to budget constraints, manpower shortages, and other logistical issues, many system managers postpone maintenance, while others take a fix it when it fails approach,” said Joseph Rey, managing partner of LocusUSA. “By measuring radios, long-range over-the-air, they are able to determine which radios need to be brought in for immediate service, and which radios can remain in the field.”
LocusUSA will be providing an exclusive look at the new DiagnostX: an Over-the-Air Radio Analyzer Service, at a launch webinar on Thursday, October 19 at 1:00 pm EST.

LocusUSA is an engineering and software development company located in Melbourne on the Space Coast of Florida since 2001. It is a leader in the area of RF capture for radio analysis and location. The ability to capture and analyze the actual waveform of a radio transmission led to the development of DiagnostX, a patented system that can measure the alignment and operating characteristics of a radio, over-the-air (OTA) in real-time without user intervention.
LocusUSA supports government customers across the United States and Canada on the local, state and federal levels with this first-of-its-kind, proactive tool, ensuring the optimal performance of a radio system.
