Advanced interference hunting and emitter location

For the first time, R&S®MobileLocator makes it possible to detect and automatically locate a transmitter from a moving DF vehicle. Within minutes, the compact DF system based on the R&S®PR200 portable direction finder can turn 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, R&S®MobileLocator can also be used in dedicated DF vehicles and helicopters.

Features & benefits

Automated interference hunting

Homing in on a transmitter

As tall buildings can reflect or obscure signals, the vehicle moves at least at walking speed to obtain sufficient bearings for R&S®MobileLocator. 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 display.

Easy-to-use interface

Web based GUI and guided workflow

The web based GUI is optimized for interference search and provides direct access to all necessary parameters. All information and results are available with the tap of a finger on a touchscreen, meaning the system can be operated easily even in challenging environments.

Easy to transport, easy to set up

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

Turnkey solution

Straightforward interference search

Manual signal location in urban areas is very time-consuming and error-prone due to the strong multipath propagation of radio signals. R&S®MobileLocator is optimized for this and quickly guides the user to the location of the interference source.

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

Designed to work in urban areas
