Ease of operation

Advanced control software from radiomonitoring and radiolocation experts

The included Windows based R&S®EM1-CTL control software has a user-friendly interface and provides extensive measurement tools. The intuitive software does not require any programming skills. R&S®EM1-CTL features:

  • Various receiver modes
  • Setting up of multiple scan ranges
  • Storage and retrieval of frequencies list of interest
  • Audio demodulation and recording of analog modulated signals
  • Recording of IQ data of digitally modulated signals
  • Direction finding

Basis for a radiolocation system

Upgrade in capabilities but not in size: AoA, TDOA or hybrid

The R&S®EM00XT is easily upgraded to an angle of arrival (AoA) based direction finder, which provides highly accurate AoA results from 20 MHz to 6 GHz and is enabled via software keycodes. Together with an additional R&S®EM100XT-IG GPS module, the R&S®EM00XT provides I/Q data with a high-accuracy timestamp that helps to ensure exceptional circular error probability of the radiolocation accuracy in a time difference of arrival (TDOA) or a hybrid (AoA and TDOA) radiolocation system.

Out-of-the-box applications

Flexible and scalable to handle application-specific requirements

Remote control of all R&S®EM100XT functions with LAN interface, offering easy connection and integration into radiomonitoring networks.  R&S®RAMON, R&S®ARGUS and R&S®CA100 software families use longstanding experience in radiomonitoring and radiolocation that has continually improved over decades.
