Superior communication surveillance
Exploiting the explosion of communication in the electromagnetic domain, Saab’s Communication Intelligence (COMINT) and Communications Electronic Support Measures (C-ESM) sensors find the right balance between automated and operator-controlled surveillance.
This enables surveillance using networked automated sensors on any platform or fixed installation.
Automated analysis of the radio theatre
The goal is to obtain a picture of the complete radio spectrum. All signals in the requested band are detected, geo-located, classified, demodulated and decoded. Wherever possible, these tasks are performed automatically. Detailed mission planning guarantees that the important signals of interest are detected and processed. The results are demodulated signal recordings and reports for each signal, stored in a centralised database.
Emitter geo-location in urban scenarios
The semi-mobile and mobile geo-location of (mobile) emitters with our sensors in urban or hilly scenarios support security at large-scale events, such as major sports events like the Olympic Games or other large public gatherings. It also supports the search for illegal operation of communication transmitters, such as unauthorised Very-Small-Aperture Terminals (VSAT).
Situational awareness of the surroundings
Our sensor systems provide supporting information to the situational picture, using the analysis of signals from a certain area. After an analysis of the situation, an automatic warning function provides threat or abnormality-detection information.
Detection of fake emissions
Saab’s COMINT technology can be used to detect of fake emissions, i.e.; a difference in the sent signal and the real identity and position of vessels and aircraft. Comparing the position information from a direction finding with the one reported in the signal exposes the fake information, which triggers the warning function, for example the *AIS or *ADS-B signals.
*AIS: Automatic Identification System
*ADS-B: Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast
Land, naval and air communication
Amplitude Modulation (AM), Frequency Modulation (FM) and digital communications signals are detected, processed and recorded from the civil and military domains, covering naval, air and land communication. All signals can be recorded and processed automatically.
Detecting and analysing Unidentified (UI) signals
Our solutions detect the signals that are new to the current radio theatre and the system displays which signals that have not been processed, using standard means. These unidentified signals are stored in a database and can be analysed for technical and tactical information.
