The SPECTRAN® V6 Command Center is, with its instantaneous bandwidth (complex I/Q) of up to 980 MHz, an obvious all-in-one solution for all RF applications. It’s equipped with the newest hardware and up to two spectrum analyzer units, that can work combined. The Command Center is the go-to solution for broadband frequency surveillance and a part of our Drone Detection System (External Link).

SPECTRAN V6 Command Center - High-End Spectrum Analyzer

The SPECTRAN® V6 Command Center offers incredible 980 MHz real-time bandwidth and a frequency range from 10 MHz up to 8 GHz (basic version 6 GHz). The Windows based system was developed specifically for mobile broadband frequency surveillance and drone detection, but it can be used for any and all RF applications. The two 4K monitors together with the high-performance hardware offer the required space and power in order to be able to measure, record and analyze signals over multiple bands simultaneously.

• Instantaneous bandwidth of up to 980 MHz (complex I/Q)
• Scans 6 GHz in less than 1 ms (4 THz/s)

• Sample rate: up to 8 x 2GSPS 16 Bit I/Q-data
• FFT rate: up to 3840 million FFT-points/s
• FFT-based POI as short as 97 ns
• I/Q-based POI as short as 10 ns
• Two 4K widescreen displays with a combined resolution of 3840 x 4320
• Automatic Triggers programmable

• Real-time and sweep spectrum analyzer in one
• Including RTSA-Suite PRO software with daily updates

Broadband Surveillance
The SPECTRAN® V6 Command Center is a perfect solution for broadband surveillance. The 980 MHz real-time bandwidth in combination with the new RTSA-Suite PRO Software make it possible to monitor multiple frequency bands simultaneously in real-time. You could monitor 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, GSM900, GSM1800, WLAN 2,4 GHz and WLAN 5,8 GHz at the same time and get a warning anytime an anomaly occurs. Alternatively, you could set the alarm trigger to specific signals. Another possibility is to use the 6GHz in 1ms sweep-mode to monitor the complete band from 10 MHz up to 6 GHz. This is a good setup, when you are uncertain at which frequencies the illegal or interfering signal transmissions will occur.

The system is capable of gaplessly monitoring and recording, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It produces 1 GB of data per minute on average. This means, that the optional integrated 24 TB storage capacity would suffice for data of about 17 complete days, before any transfers or hard-drive clean-up is necessary. The recorded data can later be used for audits or as supporting evidence.

Drone Detection
The SPECTRAN® V6 Command Center was developed and designed as part of our Drone Detection System. This means that it, together with the IsoLOG 3D antenna-array and the RTSA-Suite PRO Software, is perfectly suited for the detection and accurate tracking of drones and other signals. The system can be taught to detect signal patterns other than drones, and give a warning or trigger another action once a signal that fits the pattern is detected.

System Highlights
• Intel® Core™ i9-13900K (24 Core)
• up to 128 GB RAM
• nVidia Geforce 3060 RTX graphics card
• 1 GB NVMe (OS), 4 TB SSD (optional up to 24 TB SSD)
• Two 4K screens
• Different hardware on request
• Made in Germany

The SPECTRAN® V6 Command Center is always outfitted with the newest compatible hardware. The device functions like a normal Windows-PC. This means that no additional hardware is required, if other computer-based tasks have to be accomplished on-location. It is also equipped with two 4K monitors, which make multi-tasking and the simultaneous monitoring of multiple bands an easy task with no need to switch between multiple windows. Additionally the system is outfitted with a keyboard with an integrated trackpad – no other peripherals are required.

Option 002: 5ppb (0,005ppm) OCXO Timebase
This highly precise OCXO timebase, which has been especially developed for the SPECTRAN®, offers significantly reduced phase noise (jitter). This will allow the use of far narrower filters, which will in turn vastly enhance sensitivity. To fully exploit the maximum sensitivity this option is indispensable! Furthermore, the OCXO timebase allows far more accurate frequency measurement and display.

RF over Fiber (Rx/Tx)
Cable damping is a thing of the past! Aaronia's RF over Fiber solution impresses with its extremely high dynamics and linear frequency response. This makes it possible for the first time to transmit RF signals quasi 1:1 via fiber optics. This allows cable lengths of up to 100km to be achieved. Additionally, a galvanic separation between transmitter and receiver is achieved. Also available as dual version (e.g. for use with SPECTRAN V6-RSA2000X). Automatically locking and stackable.

Requires "OS2 Single Mode" fiber optics with "FC/APC connectors".

DC-Blocker (SMA)
The DC-Blocker must be used if you want to measure active powered antennas like GPS or satellite dishes. It prevents the RF-input of the SPECTRAN from being destroyed by the DC-voltages. Simply connect the DC-Blocker to the RF-input of your SPECTRAN and you can measure directly on GPS, satellite antennas or even DSL/ISDN etc. lines.

Omnidirectional Antennas
The OmniLOG series was developed as a cost-effective broadband antenna series for omni-directional measurements up to 8GHz. The antennas are small in size, cover frequencies from 300MHz up to 8GHz and have steady gain across the range. Compared to the HyperLOG series, the OmniLOG antennas enables the omni-directional measurement of field-strengths without having to point the antenna at the source. This allows for much faster threshold measurements.
