Advanced interference hunting and emitter location

For the first time, R&S®MobileLocator makes enables detection and automatic location of a transmitter from a moving DF vehicle. In just minutes, the compact DF system based on the R&S®PR200 portable direction finder transforms a commercial vehicle into a DF platform for the frequency range from 20 MHz to 6 GHz. In combination with other Rohde & Schwarz direction finders, the R&S®MobileLocator can be used in dedicated DF vehicles and helicopters.

Features & benefits

Automated interference hunting

Homing in on a transmitter

since tall buildings can reflect or obscure signals, the vehicle needs to be moving no slower than walking speed to provide bearings to the R&S®MobileLocator. The R&S®MobileLocator filters all available bearings, saves relevant DF results and uses statistical analysis to determine the most probable signal direction and position. The result is continually updated and displayed on a map.

Portable system

Easy transport, easy set up

Automatic direction finding with R&S®MobileLocator requires a Rohde & Schwarz direction finder with DF antenna. The R&S®PR200 with DF antenna is recommended for a small mobile system. R&S®MobileLocator software is installed on a laptop or powerful tablet and connected to the direction finder with an LAN cable. Depending on the interference signal, an R&S®ADD107 or R&S®ADD207 compact DF antenna is mounted on the vehicle roof with the magnetic mount adapter.

Turnkey solution

Straightforward interference search

The strong multipath propagation of radio signals makes manual signal location in urban areas very time consuming and prone to error. R&S®MobileLocator is optimized for multipath propagation and quickly guides users to the location of the interference source.

  • Panorama scan for a quick overview of all signal activity
  • Signal demodulation and audio recording
  • Spectrum display in real-time bandwidth for detailed signal monitoring
