Intelligent RF Spectrum Recorder Grabs 1024 Signals

Oct. 5, 2020
With 765 MHz of instantaneous real-time bandwidth, the ODEN 3001 recorder simultaneously processes all triggered signals.

Able to automatically record 1024 individual wide- or narrow-band signals for after-event analysis, characterization, or archiving, Novator Solutions’ ODEN 3001 is an intelligent RF spectrum recorder with 765 MHz of real-time bandwidth. All triggered signals are processed simultaneously and stored in dedicated files, which reduces the time and cost until the data can be further processed.

The new intelligent-recording approach is suited for signal surveillance applications such as communications intelligence (COMINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), or International Telecommunication Union (ITU) spectrum management, eliminating the need for operators to monitor and record unknown signals manually. Another area is within satellite communications, broadcasting, test, and ITU spectrum monitoring, which have common requirements to record interfering signals to eliminate unwanted emitters or to take other corrective actions.

The recorder covers a frequency range of 16 KHz to 14 GHz or 26.5 GHz with 765 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth. It provides 128 digital downconverters (DDCs) for the entire instantaneous bandwidth. A 1024-DDC option for an instantaneous bandwidth of 200 MHz will also be available. The system can be ordered with both in-chassis and external RAID hardware including enterprise-class disks with standard configurations from 4 TB to 184 TB.

The combination of a high-resolution frequency mask trigger (FMT) with 128 or 1024 individual DDCs and a new concept with acquisition regions and rules provides freedom to configure sub-frequency bands of interest within the real-time bandwidth. The company claims this reduces the amount of data to be stored and processed to a level which hasn’t been possible with conventional data-reduction techniques.

ODEN will be available at the end of 2020.
