  • Selection of optimum sites for radiomonitoring systems
    • Graphical support for convenient definition of area of interest
    • Easy import of known transmitters and radio networks
    • Recalculation to verify site suitability
    • Fast results when frequently changing the site of a radiomonitoring system
    • Support in planning radio networks for monitoring systems
    • Support in evaluating intercepted radio signals
  • Out-of-the-box solution
    • Intuitive, menu-guided operation even for less experienced users
    • Immediate deployment due to supplied elevation data
    • Single-source solution: interfaces to other software products from Rohde & Schwarz
    • Propagation models for every application
