The R&S SDTR is an open platform based on the software communications architecture (SCA) standard. SCA based waveforms and other manufacturers’ waveforms can be ported to the radio, paving the way for interoperability with allied armed forces. The R&S SDTR is an investment for the future. It has the capability to handle future international standardized waveforms with data rates of up to several Mbit/s.
Herbert Rewitzer, Head of the Radiocommunications Systems Division at Rohde & Schwarz, says: "We developed the R&S SDTR as an open, flexible platform so that our customers can adapt their communications systems to their tasks and not the other way around – a key factor in the success of missions."
Rohde & Schwarz has developed a family of network capable, high data rate waveforms to handle diverse mission requirements. The R&S HDR waveforms transmit data and up to two voice channels in parallel, at high speed and with different priorities. Users can select the waveform that best matches their requirements on range, data rate and jamming immunity. The R&S HDR waveform family enables mobile, IP based tactical radiocommunications, the prerequisite for future networked operations. In vehicle based missions, the contactability of network nodes and the availability of bandwidths can change rapidly. The R&S HDR waveforms offer MANET capability, supporting the automatic reconfiguring of radio networks.
The sophisticated security architecture of the R&S SDTR provides users with secure, reliable communications. Plain and encrypted data is strictly separated. Very fast frequency hopping rates ensure maximum immunity to jamming. These measures, combined with high-security encryption, provide optimum protection against jamming, reconnaissance and eavesdropping.
The new R&S SDTR software defined tactical radio and R&S HDR waveform family are now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
