Hopper Detection Unit (HOPD) Option

This option offers automatic detection of frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) signals in I/Q data streams.

The Hopper Detection Unit detects frequency hopping emissions inside multiple frequency bands.
The software consists of:

  • several subband processors, each processing one receiver subband
  • a hop combiner that combines the results from all subband processors and places the output in the ResultViewer
  • If the component detects a frequency hopper (FH) it will be reported including the corresponding hop parameters.
