Cosite Analysis

Designing Command and Control Communications Systems for First-Time Success

Pole/Zero®’s Cosite Interference Analysis models the following cosite interference mechanisms:

Transmit Mode

  • Broadband noise and spurious output
  • Reverse intermodulation distortion

Receive Mode

  • Receiver desensitization
  • Reciprocal mixing
  • Cross modulation
  • Receive intermodulation


With antenna to antenna coupling  data  derived either from a simulation or via empirical  techniques, the Pole/Zero cosite analysis proceeds as follows:

Military Command & Control (C2) platforms employ several RF communications channels to ensure force coordination over long distances. Unbeknownst to the warfighter, often these critical communication distances are not realized due to self-generated or cosite interference. This degradation has, at its source, insufficient antenna isolation on the C2 platform, lack of transmitter spectral purity and receiver vulnerability to desensitization from local interference. Therefore, antenna placement, transceiver selection and cosite interference mitigation techniques are central to ensuring full communications range is realized.

To meet these challenges, Pole/Zero Corporation offers system integration customers a “turnkey” source for solutions to the challenges of antenna placement optimization and RF cosite interference mitigation in shipboard, airborne and vehicular applications.
