Mobile monitoring stations

Mobile monitoring stations

Site-independent spectrum monitoring

Mobile monitoring stations are flexible and can easily move to locations where spectrum monitoring is needed. Mobile units can help mitigate interference, perform direction finding and homing tasks, take coverage measurements and even conduct microwave monitoring, in addition to other tasks. These spectrum monitoring systems can be integrated into different platforms. Large vans allow for more ergonomic operations, while compact off-road vehicles permit access to difficult terrain. Over decades Rohde & Schwarz has devised various system integration concepts to meet diverse requirements. They are based on various platforms and spectrum monitoring solutions, but all of them are optimized for efficiency, lifetime and safety.

Common types of mobile monitoring stations

Monitoring tasks, environment, terrain, and other factors determine which vehicle platform, equipment and integration design are the best for the job. Mobile monitoring stations from Rohde & Schwarz let operators conduct their assigned spectrum monitoring tasks exactly in line with their requirements.

The interference hunter

The interference hunter

The Rohde & Schwarz interference hunting vehicles focus on verifying or detecting, analyzing and geolocating unwanted emissions in the spectrum. For this, they use a direction finding system with R&S MobileLocator for efficient homing in on emissions and geolocating them. If the final meters to the interference source are not accessible by the vehicle, operators use the portable monitoring system that should always be on board.

The allrounder mobile stations

The allrounder mobile stations

The well-equipped mobile monitoring stations from Rohde & Schwarz can be equipped for multipurpose missions. They can have antennas for different purposes, one or even two masts for increasing coverage, an additional alternator to charge the system batteries, a generator for stationary operations and many other accessories. All the equipment is properly integrated in a suitable van designed to offer a fatigue-free working environment.

The unsuspicious pick-up truck

Inconspicuous pickup truck

Rohde & Schwarz has refined its smart system shelter integration concept, offering several advantages. The company’s factory integrates the systems and supplies plug-and-play shelters for local mounting on pickup trucks. On-site installation is simply a matter of mechanically fixing the shelter and connection to an electrical power supply. Operators control the inconspicuous system from the cab of the pickup with a notebook via Wi-Fi.

The coverage test car

The coverage test car

Rohde & Schwarz offers mobile stations, specialized on coverage measurements for mobile phone networks, analog and digital TV and other radio services. While on the move, the systems continuously take measurements en route. They evaluate the results along with the vehicles’ current positions for comprehensive reports about the radio coverage in specific areas.

The microwave vehicle

The microwave vehicle

Rohde & Schwarz microwave measurement vehicles are specialized for measuring in higher frequencies bands, especially in the SHF and EHF range. The systems can investigate on interference issues or perform compliance measurements on point-to-point microwave links. For measurement in main lobes high above ground, the R&S AMS aerial monitoring system is recommendable.

Precisely engineered system integration

Rohde & Schwarz has built up extensive experience in vehicle integration and provides advanced system design. As a result, customers benefit from mobile monitoring stations that feature optimized operability, efficiency and safety.

Efficiency

Efficiency

The Rohde & Schwarz mobile monitoring stations are ready for efficient field operations. They can be specialized on specific tasks or be prepared for universal usage. In each case, high efficiency and intuitive operability are essential. Operators can control the systems efficiently via computers or alternatively some devices directly at the front panel.

Smooth system integration

Smooth system integration

Rohde & Schwarz can look back on decades of experience in integrating mobile monitoring stations. As a result, the company has established mature and well-pondered integration concepts. The system integrations are well thought out for efficient and safe field operations.

Tidy design

Tidy design

Rohde & Schwarz mobile monitoring stations provide a place for everything and everything in its place. The ergonomic design allows operators fatigue-proof control of the spectrum monitoring system, undisturbed by equipment not required in that moment. Antennas and accessories have their place in the storage compartment, fixed with mounts and brackets. A well-organized design is the basis for well-organized operations.

Highest safety standards

Highest safety standards

Safety is a top priority for Rohde & Schwarz when integrating mobile monitoring stations. The designs consider countless details for increasing the operators’ safety. As an example, swiveling and lockable operator chairs with seat belts, folding armrest mean not only comfort for entering and leaving, but grant maximum safety when operating the system while the vehicle is in motion.
