Munich, January 13, 2022 - Thailand's Office of National Broadcasting and Telecommunications
Commission is expanding its R&S ARGUS spectrum monitoring system from Rohde &
Schwarz with 26 additional interference hunting vehicles. The technical parameters
for the vehicles/mobile stations and measurement equipment comply with ITU recommendations
and guidelines, enabling both manual measurements and radio frequency direction
Since 2014, Rohde & Schwarz has supplied the NBTC with seven spectrum monitoring
vehicles that use the R&S ARGUS monitoring system, allowing them to keep pace
with advances in communications technology and the ever growing number of radio
services. The authority can use the system to verify compliance within licensed
parameters and guidelines for transmitter systems. Any violation or radio interference
source can be detected, identified and tracked to the transmitter source.
"These mobile systems provide more benefits to NBTC through by expanding remote
RF interference detection, localization and identification capabilities for all
kinds of modern communications signals. A database and a geographic information
system (GIS) provides additional support," explains Anne Stephan, Vice President
Critical Infrastructure at Rohde & Schwarz. "The new 26 mobile stations can
be combined to form a single sensor network or operated individually."
The monitoring stations cover a wide frequency range. An R&S DF550 wideband
direction finder is at the core of each station, providing both direction finding
and signal monitoring. The R&S DF550 receives signals from the compact R&S
ADD253 correlative interferometer direction finder antenna mounted on the roof,
making this compact mobile platform very practical.
