Keep Operational Control in Congested Frequency Spectrum
Rohde & Schwarz is unveiling a new sensor, software and two new antennas at Eurosatory 2022 – which combine to form advanced COMINT/CESM or military spectrum monitoring solutions.
The company’s technology portfolio provides dedicated support for the communications intelligence (COMINT), communications electronic support measures (CESM) and spectrum-monitoring missions. The new systems include the UMS400 lightweight universal monitoring system, new direction finding and monitoring antennas, and intuitive CEPTOR radio-monitoring software.
The UMS400 is developed for spectrum monitoring and radiolocation from 8kHz-8GHz (extendable up to 20GHz) and features a compact outdoor housing with excellent size, weight and power (SWaP) characteristics. Its superior spectrum performance brings significant value to advanced COMINT platform systems. It is vital to obtaining actionable intelligence for situational awareness, and contributing to larger multi-sensor ISR missions and force protection during tactical operations.
The new ADD557SR and ADD597 monitoring and direction-finding antennae deliver reliable measurement results, even in dense spectrum environments. They are typically installed on mobile platforms, in combination with a multichannel direction finder, (in the case of the ADD557SR), or a single-channel direction finder (for the ADD597), to detect and geolocate tactical low-probability-of-intercept (LPI) communications as well as critical conventional communications, such as private mobile radios (PMR).
The CEPTOR software controls radio-monitoring systems for public safety and security authorities, and for armed forces, providing situational awareness in constantly changing communications environments. The intuitive and clearly structured interface guides users through typical workflows. Tasks are performed quickly and effectively, with practical default settings and automated steps providing support and delivering desired results without users having to worry about the specific characteristics of each sensor.
Rohde & Schwarz is a key partner for armed forces, law enforcement, governmental authorities or internal and external security organisations. The company produces high technology solutions at company-owned sites with a deep industrial value chains and vertical integration. The new sensor, antenna and software portfolios provide operators with cutting-edge COMINT/CESM solutions for spectrum dominance and situational awareness. They can also monitor congested RF spectra for spectrum awareness, interference hunting and measure coverage and occupancy.
