Spectrum Monitoring

Spectrum monitoring can effectively help enforce compliance with international radio traffic regulations, as breaches can be recognized in time by means of radio surveillance and radiomonitoring.

Radio traffic is governed by international regulations. This is to ensure that when police, radio stations, air traffic control and radio hams are all on the air at the same time, they do not cause mutual interference. Compliance with regulations is enforced by radiomonitoring, which is also an advantage in combating organized crime.

Any factors jeopardizing national security can be recognized in time by means of radio surveillance, which is thus an important and effective means of maintaining peace.

The radio spectrum is getting more and more crowded. The national regulatory bodies are facing the increasingly complex problem of monitoring and managing spectrum usage.

Rohde & Schwarz provides variable solutions for radiomonitoring and spectrum management tasks - from stand-alone systems to completely automated nationwide networks as recommended and specified by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

Spectrum management requires radiomonitoring as an essential element.

Measuring the spectrum occupancy is indispensable for planning future allocations of frequencies as well as monitoring all kinds of emissions, measuring of their technical characteristics and locating their sources by using direction finders.

Monitoring the entire frequency band from 100 Hz to 40 GHz around the clock and nationwide is obviously a huge and complex task.

Rohde & Schwarz provides a modular solution that can be adapted to meet all national radiomonitoring requirements.

Rohde & Schwarz offers a complete range of ITU compliant equipment for the measurement of frequency, modulation and field strength. The Rohde & Schwarz direction finders permit the remote-controlled, fast and effective position finding of all kinds of signal sources.

Integrating spectrum management and radiomonitoring is a crucial task. Rohde & Schwarz systems provide optimum efficiency by combining up-to-date radio-monitoring equipment with powerful and optimum spectrum management software.

Being an ITU member, Rohde & Schwarz is always well informed on current developments and plays an active role in preparing new recommendations. Considering future developments, Rohde & Schwarz is prepared to work out solutions that will fully meet the customers’ future requirements.
