Transportable Radio Monitoring System

Purpose:

The system is intended for direction finding, recording, technical analysis and classification of signals used in modern communication systems and data transfer system in HF, VHF, UHF and SHF ranges, as well as localization of their emitters.

The system can be implemented based on ARTIKUL-H1 or ARC-D11. Upon that configuration, function and technical specifications of the system depends on parameters of corresponding equipment.

Typical Configuration:

ARGAMAK-2K7 with AS-HP5

ARGAMAK-2K7 with AS-HP5

ARC-D11 with AS-HP-HF

ARC-D11 with AS-HP1
