Firestorm has developed the Tiger strike technology over years of research and development and practical use in search and rescue. This led to the development of two types of antenna systems the phased array and time delay of arrival system. In 2012, a report was commissioned by the Pentagon to evaluate the capability of the firestorm Tiger strike technology. This report is available to selected personnel only as well as other letters of reference and commendation for the technology.


The Tiger strike technology is comprised of in antenna configuration and the software program running Windows 7 or Windows 8 that allows the operator to seamlessly easily geo-locate targets that are emanating radio transmissions. It is this very sophisticated software that makes this technology so simple to use especially under times of stress. Our goal is to create an environment where the least trained qualified operator is as skilled as the most trained operator.



By land, boat, or air, the flexibility and adaptability of the TigerStrike™ system allows search and rescue teams to track everything from downed aircraft to lost hikers, skiers, or outdoor adventurers using personal ELT beacons.

How important is speed to recovery when searching for a wandering Alzheimer's patient? If found during the first 12 hours after going missing, 93 percent survive. However, if the person is missing for more than 24 hours, nearly 2 in 3 will NOT survive.

Where seconds can mean the difference between life and death, perhaps no situation demands the unparalleled accuracy of the TigerStrike™ system across vertical and horizontal planes than that of a downed fire fighter inside a burning building.

Every day, scientists and conservationists are tracking hundreds of species and tens of thousands of threatened or endangered animals around the world. However, if the animal cannot be recovered, valuable data stored in their GPS tracking devices becomes useless.

The Tiger strike technology has been tested at Fort AP Hill and approved to be cursor on target compliant by the US Army. This capability of wide area networking and discrete networking makes the Tiger strike extremely valuable. Multiple Tiger strike’s can be linked together via cell modem or hardwired connections so geo-locating the target can be accomplished in a much shorter period of time.


Phased array antenna configuration – the patent pending technology found in the Tiger strike allows this configuration to be very accurate very long distances. A simple way to understand the differences of these two configurations is to compare it to a camera lens. The phased array is capable of providing a line of bearing to the source of the signal being targeted at a very narrow aperture like a 5000 mm lens on a camera.


Time delay of arrival antenna configuration – the patent pending technology found in the Tiger strike allows this configuration to provide a 360° view around your location of signals that you have an interest in. In this configuration multiple targets can be transmitting and providing lines of bearing from your location to those sources in real time.



When every second counts; speed, accuracy and a level head, together with the best RDF gear available, will increase your chances to get them home safe. Through the courage of our convictions, we created a brand new class of RDF technology called Intelligent Radio Direction Finding (iRDF™).
