Rohde & Schwarz brings next generation SIGINT and counter-UAS solutions to DSEi

Talking points at the show are R&S WPU2000 (Wideband Processing Unit), the next generation ELINT processor, specifically developed to intercept both complex wideband and low power radar signals; R&S RAMON COMINT/CESM software modules; R&S NESTOR cellular network analysis system, and R&S ARDRONIS and GUARDION counter UAS solutions.

At this year’s DSEi, taking place in London, Great Britain from 10 to 13 September 2019, Rohde & Schwarz (booth S1-350), showcases components of their next generation ELINT (Electronic Intelligence) system. One of the core components of the system is the new WPU2000, a multi-channel ELINT processor with a 2 GHz instantaneous real time bandwidth. The ELINT system collects, processes and analyses modern low power, low probability of intercept (LPI) radar signals as well as wideband, multi-RF, high duty cycle radar emissions, such as those that are produced by an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA).

The WPU2000’s fast scan speed contributes to a high Probability Of Intercept (POI). This feature coupled with the receiver’s high sensitivity, approx. -100 dBm at a 2 GHz bandwidth, detects high priority and LPI threats that remain invisible to legacy ELINT and Electronic Warfare (EW) systems.

The system can either be used as a stand-alone ELINT intercept and analysis payload system or individual components can be integrated into systems that use a high gain parabolic antenna or a Direction Finding (DF) antenna.

All Rohde & Schwarz ELINT and radar DF systems feature an automatic online de-interleaving and identification software (R&S RPP), advanced Technical Pulse Analysis (R&S TPA) software suite for ELINT signal analysis and an integrated radar data management and ELINT/EW database system. The systems are capable of data import and export and feature standardized interfaces.

The independent company also showcases advanced COMINT/CESM systems, in such R&S RAMON covers a broad scope of functions, e.g. it can be used to control equipment connected to a computer, to store and analyze data delivered by the equipment and to simplify routine tasks.

Rohde & Schwarz’ systems are modular and scalable and can be deployed on a variety of platforms. The company offers communication jamming systems integrated into complete field-proven EW solutions.

Also analyzing cellular networks and widely deployed by law enforcement and government agencies, armed forces and regulatory authorities worldwide, the company's R&S NESTOR cellular network analysis system supports reconnaissance missions focusing on non-military communications. Features include accurate multi-technology RF measurements for full cellular network insights and automatic RF channels identification.

Also presented is a counter-UAS solution that provides reliable drone detection and countering capabilities even under challenging signal scenarios. The modular and scalable systems can be deployed on a variety of platforms and are in operation in the field. Rohde & Schwarz’ counter UAS solution effectively detects and disrupts a drone's control uplink signal at a very early point. R&S ARDRONIS monitors remote control uplink and drone downlink signals (in all relevant frequency bands) and can detect and locate those at an approx. range of 1.5 km under average (urban, highly congested frequency bands) and 5-7 km under optimal conditions.

With its partners ESG and Diehl Defence, Rohde & Schwarz furthermore offers a mission-proven modular multisensor UAS detection and defense system called GUARDION that includes the R&S ARDRONIS sensors and countermeasures. Already tried and tested in various major political events and in operation with many customers worldwide, GUARDION provides secure detection and defense against drones in stationary, mobile or deployable configurations, adapted to the individual requirements of customers and situations.
