DTEST option- Digital signal analysis and automatic classification


Realizing that further development of radio monitoring devices should include analysis and automatic classification of known communications standards, "RadioInspector" software developers have developed an option of digital signal analysis - "DTEST" ("Digital Test"). This option is designed for digital (software) demodulation of the most common communication standards and radiation classification in accordance with these standards. This option is very simple to use: you should set the cursor on the signal you want to explore and push the button. The program tunes the device to the cursor’s frequency, receives necessary data and performs IQ signal demodulation for a given communication standards. The result of demodulation and signal classification will be displayed on the screen.
This option uses an array or a stream of IQ data transmitted by the device. The current version of "DTest" option you can find implemented demodulators of the following communication standards:

 

  • AM and FM analog signals

  • DECT

  • TETRA

  • GSM

  • 3G

  • 4G

  • BlueTooth

  • Analog TV signal PAL / SECAM / NTSC (displaying video)

  • APCO25 (voice demodulation)

  • DRM/MOTOTRBO (voice demodulation)

  • AM and FM analog signals’ demodulation


AM and FM analog signals demodulation is possible only for devices that send a real-time flow of IQ data (currently it is the only one software defined). Demodulation is possible in any frequency band – from the maximum device provided down to 200 Hz. For AM signals there is a possibility of phase-locked loop.

DECT

Demodulator of DECT signals provides detection of base stations’ addresses (RFPI addresses) and attached handsets which are in active mode (talk mode). For each base station and the active handsets, signal level is determined in order to be able to perform their search using amplitude direction finding method. List of legal addresses a DECT base station lets to define new DECT voice data channels in a controlled premises, which can be used as radio microphones. The program does not perform voice demodulation as DECT uses different methods of data encryption.

TETRA

TETRA signals demodulation determines the values of MCC, MNC, ColorCode and other signal parameters. These parameters may be used for monitoring of TETRA transmitters use legality. If the "DMO" mode is in use ("DMO" mode is a mode of 2 handsets direct connection with the ability to activate one handset from another) the program pops up a warning message about "DMO" mode. This mode can easily be used for creation and activation of the radio microphones. The program does not perform voice demodulation for TETRA standard.

BlueTooth

BlueTooth signal software-based demodulator allows to determine the addresses (LAP addresses) of the BlueTooth transmitters which are switched on and in an active state transmitters operating in the beacon mode - that is, periodically broadcasting personal data), or transmitters working in transmit mode. There is an estimation of the transmitted traffic. According to evaluation of transmitted data, a volume transmitted data type can be defined, it is can be voice data, burst or file transmissions. List of legal LAP addresses can be used to identify a new BlueTooth transmitter in a controlled premise, where radio microphone can be found. Assessing the level of the signal can be used to search for BlueTooth transmitter with a given LAP address.

Picture 6  - Radiation analysis (Analog TV)

When displaying a TV signal the program defines a TV standard and synchronizes video according to a certain standard. At low signal/noise ratio, if the program can not synchronize the image and if video coding is in use, the manual locked loop of lines and video frames is allowed.

For easier use of the RadioInspector "DTest" option, a special software tool has been created. This tool automatically classifies signals that exceed thethreshold. It is used to automatically  identify the well-known communication standards: DECT, BlueTooth, GSM, TETRA, APCO25, DMR and Analog TV. Now the operator simply selects "Signal Classification of Common Signals" in order to display analysis results in the list of detected signals.

RadioInspector WiFi-Geo

Applications:

  • Detection of illegal access points

  • Wi-Fi voice recorder detection

  • Wi-Fi hidden camera detection

  • Detection of illegal connections to Wi-Fi networks

  • Detect stolen devices with Wi-Fi

  • Control over Wi-Fi disconnection in places
    of their limited use (sensitive facilities, prisons, administrative buildings, educational institutions, the territory of military or police operations)

  • Tracking the WIFI device to determine
    the location of its connection to other devices

  • Control Wi-Fi built into the vehicles.

  • Detection of smartphones after hacking them by hackers. Allows you to identify non-standard activity of hacked devices.

  • Record the route of the vehicle

  • Determine the load of Wi-Fi networks (download channels, traffic volume, number of connections)

RadioInspectorWIFI-GEO –detects all running devices and their relationship with mapping the route and places of discovery. It is designed for stationary and mobile usage.

Operation principle

The system scans all Wi-Fi channels in the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz range, determines and stores in memory MAC addresses of data source
and receiver, determines the signal level

and analyzes the amount of data transmitted. Fixed route (GPS tracker) and the geographical coordinates found on the route, Wi-Fi devices. The system works autonomously for data collection. It does not require a computer to work. Work begins when the power is turned on.

The stored data allows to estimate the activity of each device for a long period of time (a month or more), to identify patterns and regularity
of work and to estimate the amount of data transmitted at different times of the day.

STRUCTURE OF SYSTEM

The system consists of receiving modules that can operate without connecting to a computer around the clock. When you connect them
to your computer, RadioInspectorWiFi software downloads data from receiving modules, analyzes and displays on the map, in graphical and tabular form data on active Wi-Fi devices, their connections with each other (who

and to whom transmitted data), signal levels
and the amount of data transmitted, displays
the route, the location of detection of Wi-Fi devices. The software can be connected in series or in parallel to any number of hardware modules via LAN interface. The operator can receive data about Wi-Fi devices in real time when connected to the receiver module.
