The Malaysian regulator has awarded Rohde & Schwarz a contract for a nationwide system of fixed spectrum monitoring stations that can be remote controlled at one national and five regional headquarters.

Rohde & Schwarz will supply numerous monitoring stations to replace existing systems and establish new stations. All of them are based on the R&S® UMS compact monitoring and radiolocation system with a new combined monitoring and DF antenna. The antenna incorporates many features, such as an active / passive switch for adapting to different environments, along with horizontal and vertical polarization, completely in line with ITU recommendations. A site acceptance test is planned for March 2023.

The system features monitoring, direction finding and advanced R&S ARGUS spectrum monitoring software which is remotely controlled from regional offices and from the headquarter. R&S® UMS is a compact outdoor solution that combines ITU-compliant monitoring and direction finding, allowing two or more stations interconnected also emitter location.

Minimum infrastructure requirements ensure maximum site selection flexibility. R&S® ARGUS enables direct measurements, interactive routines and automatic procedures. The software combines powerful spectrum monitoring features with easy and efficient operation, making it perfect for both experts and less experienced operators.

The solution will act as a critical regulatory tool in the efficient planning and utilization of the country’s frequency spectrum resources.
