R&S®TMS210 Transportable Monitoring and Direction Finding Systems
Operation as an attended fixed monitoring station
The key advantage of transportable systems over fixed monitoring stations is that once the allotted tasks at one site have been completed, a transportable system can be moved to another site and quickly set up. Owing to the system’s compact design, it can even be installed on roofs or in difficult terrain. The antennas can be mounted on tripods. Depending on the task, the frequency range and the polarization of the signals to be measured, one or more monitoring or DF antennas are connected to the system.
The main advantage of fixed monitoring systems over transportable systems is that heavy, bulky equipment can be used, e.g. a large antenna array for HF direction finders. If this is not necessary, the transportable system is a cost-effective alternative.
