Abstract: The technological progress on the digital processing has an impact on the approach to the detection and localization of electromagnetic sources. In this technical report, we present a monitoring system to detect mobile satellite terminals in the open sea. The monitoring system is based on high gain antennas and amplifiers and the correlation of the known spectrum responses. The monitoring system can be implemented using low-cost component and it can be deployed in the patrolling boats. The prototype can be improved and deployed on the vessels of the coast guard or the navy, which have the responsibility to patrol the sea for illegal immigrants and piracy activities. A similar monitoring system can also be installed on Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) used for the same purpose.
