Software Defined Radios

Software Defined Radios (SDR)

The E-LynX™family of mobile tactical communications solutions is based on the most advanced software-defined radio technology, supporting broadband data communications across maneuvering tactical joint battle groups. Comprised of the latest generation multi-band channel waveform tactical IP radios, the E-LynX family provides advanced mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET) capabilities to a variety of platforms over any terrain type.

Software-defined radios (SDR) offer secure and reliable communications on the battlefield.  Strong error correction algorithms eliminate the possibility of lost data packets, and a self-healing, self forming ad-hoc networking capability ensures robust data communications of several megabits per second at adaptable bandwidths.

SDRs allow for simultaneous transmissions of wideband waveform (WF) and narrowband WF. The narrowband WF includes simultaneous voice and data transmission using only 25Khz of the VHF bandwidth, while allowing a maximum data rate of 115.2Kbps. A distinctive automatic routing and relay capability dramatically extends its reach even over harsh field conditions, while mobile ad-hoc networking (MANET) provides continuous IP networking connectivity throughout any mission. The SDR is housed in a single radio unit, improving operational efficiency by enabling the use of fewer radios in the field.
