R&S®GSACSM combines various features, including classic spectrum analyzer functions, 24/7 trapping systems, advanced signal detection, and signal analysis and classification. The software-suite ensures reliable monitoring of communication quality and identification of operational impairments. It addresses the challenges of non-standardized SATCOM systems, evolving industry activities, mission-critical communication links, and growing interference from sources such as jamming, incorrect frequency/alignment, and natural interferences. By providing automatic configuration and error detection capabilities, R&S®GSACSM helps armed forces maintain reliable and secure communication links, even in the face of these challenges. R&S®GSACSM from Rohde & Schwarz is a powerful and reliable tool for military SATCOM systems, enabling them to maintain reliable and secure communication links, even in challenging operational environments.
