go2MONITOR Specification


General

Classifier/Recognition:

  • The minimum signal length for the wideband modulation classifier is 100 ms.
  • Using the decoder (Recognition & Decoding) , the software is able to detect and process signals with a signal length of at least 1 ms.

Decoders and Demodulators:

  • MIL and PMR decoders may need an End-User-Certificate (depends on the country of the user)
  • One decoder = one line (to shorten the list). For the full list, download the actual decoderlist
  • Slow multi tone modems are recommended to operate with fixed nominal frequency
  • Decoder source code is only part of go2DECODE delivery (as go2MONITOR has no DDL compiler)

Receivers:

  • The list can be extended on customer requests.
  • It is possible to connect multiple wide band an narrow band receivers to the software.

Decoders

  • You can add new decoders or modify existing source code (SRC).
  • MIL decoders require an end user certificate for delivery outside Germany
  • PMR decoders require an end user certificate for delivery outside EU
  • SAT decoders are included in the PMR package and require an end user certificate for delivery outside EU

Soure Codes (SRC)

  • Source Code provided.
    go2DECODE is required to modify the protocol or to add additional output to the decoder (new alphabets, new META data handling etc.)

Decoder Package (PKG)

  • STD, included in basic products
  • MIL, requires EUC outside Germany
  • PMR, requires EUC outside EU
  • SAT, part of PMR Package

Legacy Decoders

  • Old, obsolete or outdated decoders are also included, as it cannot be guaranteed that such signals will not be reactivated. The information can only be given with great uncertainty.
  • November 2109 we again found signals marked before as legacy... sorry. But that's why we're also doing the monitoring to check the situation

Hopper Detection

Parameter Description
Search bandwidth MF/HF: 2.4 MHz (no scan)
VHF/UHF: 20 MHz (no scan)
Minimum signal duration ≥ 1100 ms duration for frequency hopper; min. 100 hops
Hop rate 5 to 50 hops/s for MF/HF or 100 to 1000 hops/s for V/UHF
Min bandwidth 250 kHz
Hop properties Hops belonging to one FHSS emission are expected to be similar in spectral shape.
This applies for most digital - e.g. PSK based - modulations.
Individual hops should contain several symbols.
Signal Input Signal input from PLATH SIR 5110 (using IP UDP Protocol)
Signal input from PLATH SIR 2115 (using IP UDP Protocol)
Signal input from IZT R3xxx
Other receivers on request
Recommended hardware Standard HP DL360/380 Gen10 Server (alternatively Blade) with 2 x Intel Xeon-Gold (6152)
128GB DDR4-2666 RAM
2 x 300GB SAS 12G 15K
1 or 10 GbE LAN
Operating System Windows Server 2016/2019, 64 bit;
CentOS 7.x (7.5 or higher; 7.5 is recommended) 64 bit Linux. English or German.
Parameters for each detected Frequency Hopper (FH): Description
Hopper ID Unique identifier of the hopper
Frequency From Lower frequency limit of the FH
Frequency To Upper frequency limit of the FH
Start time Start time of the FH (first time of detection by the HOPD)
End time End time of the FH (last time of detection by the HOPD)
Hop Rate Estimated hop rate in hops/second
Mean dwell time Mean value of measured hop dwell times
Standard deviation dwell time Standard deviation of measured hop dwell time
Mean inter-hop pause time Mean value of measured inter-hop pause time
Standard deviation inter-hop pause time Standard deviation of measured inter-hop pause time
Mean hop bandwidth Mean value bandwidth of all hops assigned to this hopper
Number of channels The number of frequency channels used by the hopper
SNR SNR estimation based on all hops seen for this FH emission
Parameters for each Frequency Hop: Description
