Rockwell Collins announces new software defined radio offering

Rockwell Collins has announced the introduction of its new Software Defined Radio Software Communications Architecture Waveform Development System (SCA WDS).

The offering is made possible through a strategic relationship with PrismTech. Under the terms of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will bundle its FlexNet Four Radio with PrismTech's Spectra Software Defined Radio (SDR) development products. This allows international customers and SDR users to develop their own SCA-compliant waveforms, either new or reformatted legacy, on SCA -compliant military specified radios.    

"As a leader in developing Software Defined Radio solutions, we continue to look for ways to broaden our offerings and bring greater capabilities to our customers," said Bruce King, vice president and general manager of Communications Systems for Rockwell Collins. "This relationship with PrismTech enables us to offer unparalleled capability in the development of SCA compliant SDR waveforms."

The Rockwell Collins SDR WDS includes the FlexNet 2MHz to 2GHz multi-channel SDR. The FlexNet Four offers enhanced capacities to significantly improve the connectivity, mobility, versatility, interoperability and exchange of information on the battlefield.

Key benefits include:

•        Up to four simultaneous channels

•        Internetworking communication nodes

•        Support for the high data rate ad hoc networking FlexNet Waveform

•        Support for standard legacy waveforms

•        Multimedia services

•        SCA 2.2 compliant

The highly integrated development platform delivered with the Rockwell Collins SDR WDS includes PrismTech's Spectra model-driven development SCA waveform and platform tools and integrated SCA operating environment.

The Spectra product suite is tightly integrated with the FlexNet Four SDR and provides:

•        SCA Waveform and platform modeling

•        Complete SCA code generation

•        Waveform component library management

•        Reverse engineering of existing SCA-based waveforms

•        Integrated build and deployment environment

•        Automated SCA test generation and framework
