The Rohde & Schwarz SDxR family has been implemented with strict separation between the device platform and the software, the waveforms, based on the internationally standardized Software Communications Architecture (SCA).
This makes it possible to port SCA-based waveforms from other manufacturers as well as existing waveforms, providing both security for future investments and backward compatibility with existing radio systems. Customers can modify the waveforms as well as the integrated encryption, which enables them to establish interoperable secure communications channels between different branches of the armed forces and various countries. National data is protected, and information in joint or combined deployment is assured.
Rohde & Schwarz has developed a family of network capable, high data rate waveforms for a variety of deployment requirements. For every communications scenario, users can select the waveform and encryption that best match their requirements for range, data rate and interference immunity.
The R&S HDR waveforms and the latest generation of SDR technology are already used in the R&S SDTR for vehicle-based tactical communications and in the R&S SDHR handheld tactical radio. The new R&S SDAR software defined airborne radio enhances the land-based communications system with airborne components. Rohde & Schwarz developed SVFuA, the joint radio system of the German armed forces that is installed in command vehicles as a communications hub. This system is the first phase of digitalization of mobile tactical communications (MoTaKo) for the German armed forces. The Rohde & Schwarz system architecture also provides smart routing, end-to-end encryption and system management.
Rohde & Schwarz is presenting its product portfolio for secure communications and cybersecurity at the Eurosatory Defense & Security International Exhibition in Paris (Villepinte Exhibition Center, hall 6, booth K300) from June 11 to 15, 2018.
