OPERATIONAL PRINCIPLE 

1. Peculiarities of the testing procedure for the presence of devices of unauthorized opportunities: 

  • The testing shall be conducted in test mode with the aim to exclude the influence of environment on the changes of allocation of thermal fields on the tested units and modules of computing equipment.
  • Before the test, accumulation and averaging of allocation of thermal fields shall be done across the object which is being tested, as well as static characteristics of allocation shall be measured. Threshold values are given to the deviation of thermal field from the basic value of the given field of the object. When the current allocation of the thermal field of the object exceeds the threshold value, it is considered to be an anomaly, which is mentioned in the test results with given modes, under which the anomaly was detected.
  • Each detected anomaly is analysed and, if necessary, is tested again under those modes under which it was detected, in order to make a decision about the presence of devices of unauthorised opportunities. The complex enables to control the settings change as well as to set up initial parameter values of a PC sound card.

2. Detection of radio receiving devices: 

  • Testing is based on the fixation of the increase of the radio receiver’s temperature by the thermal camera and control computer.
  • A provoking electromagnetic signal is received by the input cascade of the radio receiver and is increased to the level necessary for further processing. The signal increase leads to the temperature increase of the radio receiver components.
  • The test duration for each type of the input signal in the range of 10…3000 MHz is 96 min.

3. Detection of radio transmitting devices: 

  • Testing is based on the fixation of the increase of the temperature of the radio-transmitting output cascade by the thermal camera and control computer.
  • Built-in transmitters of unauthorized opportunities can be active during a certain period of time. This is why it is viable not to interrupt the testing when changing provoking influences. Tesing under any provoking influences takes no more than 24 hours.

4. Detection of devices for collecting acoustic information:  

  • Testing is based on the control of thermal parameters of the components under provoking acoustic influences.
