CONATEL, the regulatory authority of Paraguay, has chosen the R&S AMS aerial monitoring system from Rohde & Schwarz to efficiently verify the technical parameters of the ever-increasing number of microwave links in the country.

R&S AMS is a small, lightweight monitoring payload carried by a commercial drone. This solution allows easy, economic and effective measurements by flying inside the main lobe of microwave links that usually run horizontally tens of meters above the ground and are otherwise very hard to access.

The R&S AMS payload comprises a spectrum analyzer, antenna, control computer, Wi-Fi unit and battery pack. Having its own battery and data link make the payload independent from the drone's infrastructure. Weighing less than 4.5 kg, it can quickly be connected underneath the drone, and can be used with various directional and omnidirectional antennas for different frequency bands.

"Rohde & Schwarz is proud to provide CONATEL with the microwave link measurement technology," says Frank Mayer, Vice President Spectrum Monitoring and CUAS, Rohde & Schwarz. "Rohde & Schwarz has delivered various systems and solutions to the Paraguayan regulatory authority and maintained a successful partnership over the decades. The system is usually controlled by two operators, one drone pilot and one R&S AMS system operator. The system is also able to operate autonomously and all collected data can be easily transferred to the compatible R&S ARGUS database."
