Transportable and Portable Means for Radio Monitoring


Transportable Measuring Radio Monitoring System


The system is intended for search, detection, identification, recording, demodulation, spectrum and technical analysis of radio signals within HF, VHF, UHF and SHF ranges, measurement of field strength and signals parameters, when operated while moving or at temporary stops, as well as for localization of radio emission sources when being operated as a part of a distributed system.

Typical Configuration:

  • ARGAMAK-RS Measuring Radio Receiver (Protected Design)
  • EFSU External Field Sensor Unit (omni-directional measuring antenna)
  • Navigation and timing equipment GLONASS/GPS for location finding and synchronization of the systems when joint operating.
  • AC and vehicle on-board power unit with charger
  • Control and display unit with SMO-PAI, SMO-STA, SMO-ASPD Software Packages.


  • ARC-A7A-3 Broadband Antenna for Installation on Vehicle
  • Built-in 2G/3G/4G router
  • Shockproof case for storage and transportation
  • 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 DECT, BS TRUNK (DMR, APCO P25), BS Wi-Fi
  • SMO-CT Software Package for Digital TV Signal Analysis
  • Software Development Kit.


  • Option of operation as a part of automated spectrum monitoring systems (ARMADA, AREAL etc.)
  • Protected design (IP67) providing for outdoor operation in complicated weather conditions
  • To prevent overloading in complicated electromagnetic environment, digital radio receiver includes additional analogue path with 500 kHz bandwidth
  • Localization of radio emission sources localization based on TDOA method (when being operated as a part of distributed system)

System Provides:

  • Panoramic spectrum analysis within entire operating frequency range or within separate intervals
  • Finding and identification of radio emission sources
  • Monitoring of appropriate use of radio frequency spectrum
  • Measuring of signal parameters, determination of modulation type
  • Field strength measurement
  • Demodulation of continuous AM, NFM, WFM, USB, LSB, CW signals
  • Continuous IQ recording within the band up to 22 MHz
  • Collecting data on frequency range loading
  • Search for radio emission sources based on reference spectrum data (mask) or combination of preset conditions
  • Flexible editing of reference spectrum data (group masks)
  • Display of frequency assignments with detailed information on radio emission sources from database on the spectrum
  • Monitoring of parameters of radio emission sources based on spectrum mask
  • Demodulation, playback and recording of radio signals
  • Saving of radio monitoring results to database (including spectrogram and time sample, for each measurement its date, time and coordinates are recorded) automatically or on operator's command
  • Option of printing or export to storage of radio monitoring results
  • Analysis of operation results in postprocessing mode
  • Creating reports in MS Word, MS Excel, PDF, HTML, XML, and OpenOffice formats, which presents the results in text, table or graphic forms
  • Editing report templates
  • Open control protocol, option of integration with external information systems
  • Localization of radio emission sources with amplitude method, as well as TDOA and combined methods (when being operated at temporary stops as a part of distributed system).

Technical specifications of the system depends on parameters of ARGAMAK-RS Digital Measuring Radio Receiver
