Satellite monitoring and satellite interception

As technology becomes more complex, managing security environments is becoming increasingly challenging, especially for government authorities involved in the surveillance of communications traffic across various satellite networks.

The portfolio of Rohde & Schwarz satellite monitoring solutions for passive interception and monitoring of satellite communications signals is based on many years of professional experience. It ranges from flexible, transportable solutions to complex stationary strategic systems for simultaneous interception of signals and services from multiple satellites. Areas of application include the analysis and identification of unknown satellite based communications as well as the processing of satellite signals and services for intelligence purposes. Field-proven operational concepts and sophisticated analysis tools help organizations efficiently and effectively analyze carriers, services, content and metadata.
