There are various methods for geo-locating an RF signal of interest. Primary alternatives include Power of Arrival (POA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA), and Angle of Arrival (AOA). In most situations where modulated signal bandwidths are greater than 25 kHz, TDOA provides the best accuracy. This application note focuses on the use of TDOA as a means for tracking a signal.

The purpose of an in-building wireless (IBW) system is to provide enhanced network coverage
and/or capacity when the existing macro network is not able to adequately service the
demand. Coverage may be poor due to high penetration losses caused by the building
structure or due to low emissivity glass installed to improve the thermal performance of the building. In dense urban environments, adjacent buildings may create an RF barrier that blocks coverage from nearby macro sites. Tall buildings typically have poor coverage on
upper floors since macro site antennas, many floors below, are specifically designed to
suppress energy radiating above the horizon. Capacity may be an issue in venues such as
stadiums, coliseums and convention centers where many thousands of users may be trying to
simultaneously access the network.

This documentation provides a description of the Anritsu’s Remote Spectrum Monitor (RSM) and Vision Software API’s. It describes the graphical user interface, provides a how-to chapter to set up measurements, discusses API programing, and covers a lists of API programming commands. API's are presented both for control of Anritsu's RSM hardware product line (MS2710XA) as well as for Vision software. Most features in Vision are paid options. In order for these options to work, the RSM hardware must have these options
enabled. Please see the Vision software Product Brochure and User Guide for option information.
Capable of sweeping at rates up to 24 GHz per second, the MS27101A allows capture of many types of signals. This includes periodic or transient transmissions as well as short "bursty" signals. Also featured is a high dynamic range, high sensitivity and low spurious signals. This enables the MS27101A to reliably distinguish between low-level signals being observed and those signals generated by the monitor itself. P/N: 11410-00902

Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) is a technique for geo-locating RF sources. It requires three or more
remote receivers (probes) capable of detecting the signal of interest. Each probe is synchronized in time to
capture corresponding I/Q data blocks. Software shifts the time signature of each I/Q data set to find the
difference in the arrival time at each probe. This gives the difference in the distance of the source from each
set of probes. Using several probes provides a set of curved lines that indicate solutions to the distance
equations. The actual RF source sits at the intersection of these lines.
TDOA can provide a very accurate location estimate (< 100 m) in a short period of time. To successfully use
TDOA it is essential to understand the type of signals that can be used, how the results depend on the
geometry of the measurement (probe and source
locations), what the sources of uncertainty are and
how to mitigate them, and how to know if the
answer is meaningful.
