HyperMon is an automatic and blind signal analysis tool for modulation / constellation / coding scheme / framing standard identification based upon an extensive algorithms library which represents the "state of the art" of this field:

  • cyclostationnary methods,
  • Bayesian methods,
  • clustering,
  • blind equalization,
  • very high speed basic DSP tasks (optimisations based on polyphase filtering, PRFB, resampling . . . ),
  • time-frequency analysis,
  • composite signal break-down procedure,
  • unsupervised noise level estimation,
  • unsupervised channel analysis (scattering function . . . ),
  • supervised deep learning classification.

HyperMon was created and still evolves against an ever growing set of tests, mainly composed of real signals. This approach leeds us to a low failure ratio in field applications.

The Graphical User Interface (GUI), targeted to operational users from the beginning, is intuitive and simple use. All actions and data are available through a context sensitive menu, and the results are deployed in an analysis tree that:

  • reduces complexity to the minimum,
  • hides all possibilities except those making sense on the selected node/object,
  • provides an easy view of the data processing.



Blind signal analysis

Identified MAC (Medium Access Controls):

  • frame duration, slots duration, guard duration, number of users, network load,
  • modulation and FEC recognition inside each burst,

Identified modulation families:

  • analog,
    • AM, SSB-L, SSB-U, DSB
    • FM,
  • digital linear (BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK, 8AMPM, 16QAM, 16APSK, 32APSK . . . ),
  • OFDM
  • Multi-tone (MT)
  • digital non linear:
    • CPM (GMSK, L-SRC, L-REC, TFM . . . )
    • N-FSK

Rates/speed estimates:

  • symbols,
  • binary streams (coded / uncoded),
  • frames (OFDM . . . ).

Code detection or identification:

  • CV (as Viterbi or Sequential),
  • RS, alone or concatenated,
  • TCM,
  • TPC,
  • LDPC,
  • . . . .

Estimated transmission parameters:

  • Eb/No, SNR,
  • information bit rate, carrier frequency, bandwidth,
  • budget link.

Automated features

  • carrier under carrier detection,
  • DVB-S2, iDirect detection and analysis,
  • double talk detection and estimation,
  • periodic motif detection,
  • blind equalization,
  • automatic ACF analysis.

And much, much more!
