MUNICH – Rohde & Schwarz in Munich is introducing the R&S SDAR airborne software-defined radio with secure, high-rate data communications that can be certified for military and civil use.

The R&S SDAR is an IP-based radio that supports the porting of waveforms independently of the manufacturer. The radio is designed as an open platform based on the international Software Communications Architecture (SCA) standard, with a strict separation between the radio's hardware and waveforms.

That makes it possible to port SCA-based waveforms, including those from other manufacturers, as well as legacy waveforms to the radio. It also enables users to create and modify embedded encryption along with the waveforms to set up secure communications channels that provide interoperability between different branches of a country's armed forces.

The radio protects national data, and promotes information superiority in joint operations and combined missions. Rohde & Schwarz can provide network enabled waveforms to handle diverse mission requirements.

The waveforms of the R&S HDR family can transmit not only data, but also as many as two voice channels in parallel at high speed and with different priorities.

Users can select the waveform that best suits a given communications scenario in terms of range, data rate and jamming resistance. In addition, the R&S HDR waveforms integrate secure encryption algorithms to protect military communications.
