Ultra Electronics’ engineers sought a secure, reliable software platform upon which to upgrade the U.S. Army’s Area Common User System, Joint Network Node high-capacity line-of-sight radio, known as the AN/GRC-254(V) HCLOS. They selected the Green Hills Platform for Software Defined Radio (SDR) from Green Hills Software Inc. in Santa Barbara, Calif., for their mission.

The new radio, designed to deliver bandwidth-efficient links for voice and data transmission on the digital battlefield, is being upgraded to provide up to 16-megabyte-per-second traffic throughput.
