In order to properly monitor the situation, the spectrum must be continuously monitored. The most efficient way to do this is with a fully automated 24/7 workflow.
To use automatic processing features, the operator creates tasks and missions. The results are stored in a database for further evaluation. An advanced ResultViewer shows a tabular or graphical representation of the stored data.
PROCITEC releases two updates per year with new functions and additional decoders
MIL decoders require an End User Certificate outside Germany
PMR decoders require an End User Certificate outside EU/Wassenaar
Due to the complexity of the software, not all functions are described on the website. Please also study the brochure and the user manual
go2MONITOR is ready to run two (more on request) multiple wideband inputs side-by side in one application. The wideband inputs can come from multiple receivers like:
PLATH SIR 2115, SIR 511X receiver
IZT R3xxx (4 channels)
WiNRADiO G39 (2 channels)
For decoding, the narrowband/production channels can be setup completely independent, giving full flexibility. Tabs are used to show multiple receivers (to safe space) or receivers can also be displayed side by side.
Work with multiple receivers connected to different antennas (different locations, directions, polarization, etc.) and select the best one for decoding.
Monitor HF and VHF/UHF at the same time using different receivers
Monitor multiple frequency ranges at the same time and use the available decoding channels according to your requirements.
Simultaneous decoding/recording from one receiver and additional playback of recorded files. Even during monitoring you can start working on recorded files.
The classifier is an important component in non-cooperative communications monitoring in which a listener desires to intercept unknown signals.
go2MONITOR contains a multi-stage classifier with the following functions:
Detection of all signals in the available frequency range
Modulation type classification
Detailed signal parameters measurement
Pre-classification of some protocols
go2MONITOR offers different tools for automatic tuning and decoding of signals, a big advantages compared to other decoders where you are fixed to one work flow.
The tools used are:
Continuous narrow-band classifier (provided in the production channel)
Snapshot classification, provided in the spectrum (spectrogram/FFT) display
Continuous wideband classification provided in the spectrum (spectrogram/FFT) display in Automatic Monitoring and Tasking (Option) mode
Recognition and Decoding (provided in the production channel) The production channel uses a configurable list of decoders and checks in parallel which one of these decoders is matching the received signal.
Classification, Recognition and Decoding With the information (modulation, symbol-rate, shift etc,) of the classification, a dynamic modem list is prepared. Then this list is used for Recognition and Decoding
A production channel uses a configurable list of decoder/modems. The best match is selected for decoding. The signal is demodulated, decoded and the results are displayed. Depending on your go2MONITOR version 1, 2 4, 8, 16, 32 or any other number of production channels are available.
Reliable recognition, demodulation and decoding of data signals and voice signals
Determination of technical parameters for display and decoding
Processing of signals without loss
Extraction of information about the transmission protocol, meta data, time-stamp
Signal decoding down to the content like text, audio, binaries etc.
Storing the output to files/database
Extendible by the customer (Universal demodulators, Decoder Description Language)
Adaptive demodulators and soft-decision decoding
The result display shows the collected results in detail and can be configured using the Extensible Style sheet Language (XSLT). Up to eight production channels can be used in parallel in manual mode, up to a few hundred in automatic mode.
All results are stored automatically in a PostgreSQL database. There is no need for the user to explicitly “save” results!
Data export is possible into a CSV file for further processing with Excel or another application. It is possible to export all data or only a subset of data created using filter/structure/sorting/masking. You can add your own export functions in Python to create e.g.:
Reports according to your organization requirements
All information available for the current filter/structure are display in a table. The column selection and the sorting and filtering can be changed
The Time/Frequency view shows the same results as the table view, but in graphical form
The position of the system and transmitter are displayed on a map
Received geo location information from HFDL, AIS, etc. are extracted (PYTHON scripting, can be modified)
Direction finder DF. The interface to the DF can be done by using PYTHON scripting
Bulk File Processing
You can process recorded signals directly from specified folders with predefined options. It is possible to monitor folders and process new files automatically. This allows easy connection of go2MONITOR to existing tools and systems from TCI (Blackbird), IZT, CRFS, decodio etc.
Straightforward integration into existing system (no programming required)
An external source creates recording of signals and stores them in the files system
Files gets automatically decoded
Files are decoded at full speed (depends on license)
Results are stored in the database
Operators use ResultViewer’s to access results, the output can get further processed by operators or additional software
