Technical analysis of communications signals

The R&S®CA210 is a software solution for technical offline analysis of recorded signals and wideband signal scenarios. It provides analysis functions for fixed frequency emissions and examining burst transmissions. With the R&S®CA210, signal analysts and experienced COMINT operators have a powerful tool for frequency domain analysis, time domain analysis and modulation parameter measurement of unknown signals. The results of the signal analysis can be handed over as reports to COMINT postprocessing. The R&S®CA210 is an ideal extension of online signal analysis solutions such as R&S®CA100 or R&S®CA120/RAMON.

Features & benefits

Automatic signal analysis

Sparing analysts routine work

An automatic detection function speeds up investigation of wideband signal samples that can contain a large number of different emissions. R&S®CA210 includes a powerful automatic classifier for determining modulation type, measuring technical parameters and identifying the transmission system of a wide range of analog and digital signals. The workflow combines detection and classification with fully automated rule based signal processing.

Interactive modulation analysis

Manual measurement of emission characteristics measurements

R&S®CA210 covers the measurement methods specified in the ITU-R SM.1600 recommendation. It offers a variety of representations and tools for analyzing and measuring technical parameters for unknown signals, such as bandwidth, symbol rate, number of tones, tone spacing, shift, modulation index, length of guard interval, number of channels, signal duration, symbol valency and modulation type.

OFDM signals

In-depth analysis of continuous OFDM signals

The OFDM signal analysis provides a fast, step-by-step guide to determining OFDM signal characteristics and modulation parameters. It also helps demodulate the OFDM signal and determine or verify OFDM symbol allocations. The automatic algorithms determine all relevant signal and modulation parameters. Each parameter can be modified and used as a preset for the automatic algorithm. All estimated parameters can be verified in multiple diagrams for the best results.

With the constellation diagram and allocation matrix active, the analyst can decide which channels of the OFDM signal are used for what purpose.

COMINT solution integration

Demodulation and decoding

Signals analyzed or classified with R&S®CA210 can be handed over to the optional R&S®CA100 PC based signal analysis and signal processing software for demodulation and decoding. If users have an R&S®CA120 multichannel signal analysis software solution, the R&S®CA210 can use its processing resources in automatic signal processing mode.
