Centralized automatic radiomonitoring network

Existing Radio-Monitoring System

 

 

It is being considered to implement controlling mechanisms of the general frequency spectrum for civil use in the territory of Azerbaijan as well as regulating and controlling the frequency carriers used for the normal operation of radio electronic transmissions. This project was commenced in 1970 and now is to be expanded to implement radio-monitoring in the Republic over several air-broadcast control points: 3 in Baku, 5 regional and 4 assistant points as well as 1 mobile station in the regions and a radio-monitoring system consisting of the different mobile analyzers. The existing radio-monitoring system can carry out the REF monitoring operating at a frequency range up to 3 GHz.

 

The existing radio-monitoring system cannot receive radio signals with a frequency above 3 GHz, analyze broadband radio signals, neither does it offer automated controls for fixed and mobile radio-monitoring points from a single center, nor the automatic identification of frequency signals being illegally beamed with automatic determination of their place of origin.

 

Description of the project

The creation of high frequency broadband radio communication systems to increase the number of frequencies for radio-electron broadcasting in the republic and the rest of world necessitates the full redevelopment of the existing radio-monitoring system. For this purpose the experience of developed countries have been studied, the initial technical terms for a Centralized Automatic Radio-Monitoring System complying with the recommendations of the International Telecommunication Union for civil purposes, have been designed and technical-financial offers obtained from companies experienced in such field.

 

The Management Center, which is the part of the Centralized Automatic Radio-Monitoring System, will be installed in Baku city. It will centralize control of the regional points (stations) utilizing GSM, Internet, cable (optical, etc.), RRCL or satellite communications systems.

 

Regional radio-monitoring stations are installed in the regions meeting the geographic preconditions of the country. Communication connections between regional stations management center with assistant stations, non-served stations and mobile stations. Received and transmitted information is to be monitored by the server of the station and is transmitted from the server to the appropriate operational point.

 

Aims of the project

  • The aims of the creation of the Centralized Automatic Radio-Monitoring System in compliance with New International Standards and recommendations are:
  • Full automatic control over the general frequency spectrum, considered for civilian use in the country, and high-frequency radio signal reception (above 3 GHz.)
  • Analyzing broadband frequency signals,
  • Automatic management of fixed and mobile monitoring stations (which are the constituent parts of the radio-monitoring system) from the unit center,
  • Automatic discovery of illegal frequency signals being broadcast,
  • Fast and automatic determination of the source of origin of frequencies being beamed,
  • Analyzing the technical parameters of the radio-TV and satellite communication channels broadcasting from the new telecommunication satellites planned to be launched into a geostationary orbit and from the satellites of other countries, and those [technical parameters] of satellite communication channels being transmitted from satellites (DZZ satellites) situated in the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and considered for remote investigation and sounding,
  • Timely discovery and analysis of frequency signals being broadcasted from adjoining states into the territory of the Republic.

Expected results

  • Automation of the radio-monitoring system;
  • More effective utilization of the frequency spectrum which is a limited natural resource;
  • Increasing functional and technical opportunities of radio-monitoring;
  • Evaluating the actual utilization of radio frequency resources;
  • Providing the registration of payments for the utilization of radio frequency resources and automating controls;
  • Evaluating the results of radio-monitoring to resolve disputed issues;
  • Decreasing the manual labor and mistakes;
  • Increasing efficiency and saving of time;
  • Protection of information security of the country.
