Mobile Measuring System


  • The system is intended for search, detection, measuring of RES's signal parameters, recording, technical analysis and classification of modern HF, VHF, UHF and SHF communication systems operated as a part of a mobile station

Typical Configuration:

  • ARGAMAK-IS Panoramic Field Strength Meter designed for mobile application (simultaneous bandwidth up to 22 MHz, frequency range 0.009-3000 MHz, Certificate of Approval of Measuring Equipment Type No 47238, certified measuring procedure)
  • ARC-A7A-3 Broadband Antenna for Installation on Vehicle
  • Power system with charger and battery
  • Control and display unit with SMO-PAI, SMO-STA, SMO-ASPD Software Packages.

ARGAMAK-IS with ARC-A7A-3 Antenna


  • Standalone operation or operation as a part of automated spectrum monitoring systems ARMADA, AREAL
  • It meets the requirements of Unified Technical Policy (ETP) of RF Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications concerning mobile radio monitoring systems
  • It meets the following ITU-R recommendations: SM.328, SM.377, SM.378, SM.443, SM 1047, SM 1050, SM.1139, SM 1268, SM 1370, SM 1392, SM 1537, SM 1600, SM 1682, SM 1836, SM 1837, SM 1838, SM 1840, SM 2039, SM 1880
  • To increase measuring accuracy in complicated electromagnetic environment, additional built-in analogue path with 500 kHz bandwidth can be used


  • Extension of operating frequency range up to 8 GHz
  • External remote-controlled ARC-KNV4 Frequency Down-Converter for Measuring Equipment (3-18 GHz, Certificate of Approval of Measuring Equipment Type No 48021)
  • External field sensor unit (omni-directional measuring antenna)
  • Set of mast-mounted measuring antennae
  • Measuring HF-antenna with frequency range from 9 kHz
  • Mast mounted ARC-UP2 Remote Controlled Antenna Rotator
  • Mast or tripod to mount rotator with measuring antennae
  • Navigation and timing equipment GLONASS/GPS for location finding, increasing of accuracy of the frequency measurement and synchronization of the units when joint operating
  • Communication and data transmission equipment
  • ARC-GIS Geoinformation Server
  • Software packages for cross talk detection (SMO-PVP), base station signal analysis (SMO-BS), DVB-T/T2/H signal analysis (SMO-CT).

System Provides:

  • New rafio emitters search, measurement and comparison against the database
  • Panoramic spectrum analysis within the entire operating frequency range or within separate intervals under complex electromagnetic conditions, detection of its changes
  • Recording radio environment within a specified frequency range. This procedure can function within a long period and is based on amplitude/frequency/time coordinates, unit location and the absolute time at the time of saving
  • Databases maintenance.
  • Automated monitoring of open radiophonic channel within specific range sections and/or fixed frequencies, simultaneous recording of demodulated signals and their service parameters.
  • Recording and technical analysis of radio signals in real time mode and in postprocessing mode.
  • Check of frequency/time parameters and service information of base station of modern communication and data transmission systems (GSM, IS-95, cdma2000, EV-DO, UMTS, TETRA, DECT, LTE, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, DMR, APCO P25)
  • Demodulated signals playback
  • Accumulation of data for further analysis in the postprocessing mode
  • Field strength measuring and its distribution mapping
  • Evaluation of field strength distribution around emitters subject to terrain and presenting of the results in the map
  • Localization of emitters based on field strength measurement
  • Verification of emitter parameters
  • Creating and printout of reports
  • Database management (archivation, recovery, filtering, etc.).

Technical specifications of System depends on parameters of ARGAMAK-IS Panoramic Field Strength Meter
