BURNABY, British Columbia, 2 March 2006. Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. in Burnaby, British Columbia, today announced the flexComm SDR-3002 EWRDP "IF to Ethernet" platform for developing and deploying wideband electronic warfare (EW) systems.

The system is for electronic support (collection) and electronic attack (jamming) applications in stationary or mobile deployments. This commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software-defined radio platform is to reduce the effort and schedule to develop and deploy an EW system.

The SDR-3002 EWRDP frequencies as high as 480 MHz over six coherent intermediate frequency (IF) input and output channels, with a multitude of field programmable gate array (FPGA) and general-purpose processing (GPP) capabilities.

The system is suitable for harsh environments and can operate at temperatures as hot as 50 degrees Celsius.

The SDR-3002 EWRDP system is based on Spectrum's SDR-3000 software defined radio processing and analog-to-digital/digital-to-analog converter boards. The package includes Spectrum's quicComm software, a hardware abstraction layer that facilitates platform programming and code portability.

Several software data flow examples are provided. For more information contact Spectrum Signal at www.spectrumsignal.com/products.
