Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) has unveiled a new radio monitoring software at Eurosatory 2022 defence exhibition in Paris.

The software ‚ÄėCeptor' controls radio monitoring systems, and has an intuitive structured user-interface that guides the user through typical work procedures, Luc Dondainas, domain expert in communications Intelligence (COMINT) and manportable communications electronic support measures (C-ESM) at R&S told Janes .

Specific tasks can be logged and saved on the system, enabling a range of individuals, including those not necessarily skilled in COMINT, to use the platform, Dondainas explained.

Ceptor is a fully developed platform, which has already been delivered to a customer. Its development was influenced by customers who have the company’s software suite (Ramon & Argus), Dondainas added.

Significant applications associated with Ceptor include searching for signals and observing known transmitters, collecting radio frequency (RF) spectrum data, calculating spectral usage and active transmitters, direction finding (DF), and a ‚ÄėMobileLocator' system for homing-in on transmitters with a moving DF sensor, the company said.

‚ÄúRunning, stopped, and most recent‚ÄĚ tasks are saved to enable quick access and operability, the company said.

According to Dondainas, the R&S PR200 Portable Monitoring Receiver is the predecessor to the Ceptor.
