Means for Radio Monitoring Indoor


Remote Indoor Radio Monitoring System


  • The system is intended for revealing, identification, localization and accounting of radio emission sources including modern wideband communication system inside premises and within neighbor area.

Typical Configuration:

  • Central post equipment:
    • Control server
    • Communication and data transmission equipment
    • Controlled Uninterruptible Power Supply;
  • Peripheral equipment:
    • ARGAMAK-VM0 Remote Units designed for outdoor installation
    • ARGAMAK-VM1 Remote Units designed for indoor installation
  • Control and display unit (operator's AWS) with SMO-DX, SMO-PA, SMO-STA, SMO-ASPD Software Packages


  • ARC-ABS External Wi-Fi Analyzer
  • ARC-D11 Two-Channel Panoramic Radio Receiver
  • ARC-D1 Multi-Functional Portable Radio Monitoring System
  • ARC-RP3M Handheld Direction Finder
  • SMO-BS Software Packages for Wireless Data Communication System Analysis: BS 3GPP (GSM, UMTS, LTE), BS CDMA (IS-95, cdma2000, EV-DO), BS TETRA, BS TRUNK (DMR, APCO P25), BS Wi-Fi, BS WiMAX.


  • Remote control
  • Option of operation as a part of automated spectrum monitoring systems (ARMADA, AREAL etc.)
  • Portable modules on the basis of the broadband heavy-duty ARGAMAK-VM0 and ARGAMAK-VM1 Digital Radio Receivers with a real-time radio analysis band of about 24MHz
  • Using Ethernet 1000BASE-T interface for control and transmission of signals (within the distance of about 100 m) and/or optic cables (at longer distances)
  • Scalable architecture allowing removing the limitations on the number of portable modules and considerably longer performance of the facility by organizing distributed computations
  • Transmission of radio signals in the digital format ensures high sensitivity, large dynamic range and absence of the antenna effect of the HF cables regardless of the number and remoteness of the modules
  • Synchronization of all portable modules of the system with a reference to the unified time scale allows using hybrid localization algorithms by measurement of amplitude and signal receiving time, increasing radio frequency source localization accuracy
  • Digital processing of signals in real-time allows detection of signals shorter than 1 s
  • ARC-ABS Portable Analyzers ensures analysis of signal parameters and localization of radio emission sources of Wi-Fi wireless networks.
