GERMAN FORCES SELECT SPECTRUM PLATFORM FOR SDR PROTOTYPING

BURNABY, B.C. - Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. will supply two flexComm SDR-3002 IMRDP (International Military Communications Rapid Prototyping and Development Platform) platforms to WTD 81, an agency of the German Federal Office of Defense Technology and Procurement (BWB). 


BWB is the centralized procurement organization for the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr). This purchase will enhance the software defined radio capabilities within the Bundeswehr and equip WTD 81 with a high performance hardware platform integrated with the necessary software and waveform development tools to support the Software Communications Architecture (SCA).

"The Bundeswehr selected Spectrum for its ability to deliver a turnkey platform, complete with on-site installation and integration, in-depth training and comprehensive support packages," said Josef Karg, Communications Section Leader, WTD 81.
 "The Bundeswehr’s selection of the SDR-3002 IMRDP is further testimony to Spectrum’s SCA and software defined radio technologies and capabilities. I’m confident that the German Bundeswehr, as our first international SDR-3002 IMRDP customer, will serve as an excellent reference for further international sales of this product," said Dan Simard, managing director of Spectrum Signal Processing (UK) Ltd.
 The SDR-3002 IMRDP is a commercial-off-the-shelf solution targeting military communications programs. The platform provides a turnkey black-side ‘RF to Ethernet’ processing system and includes sample application software supporting frequency agile operation, making the SDR-3002 IMRDP ideal for rapid prototyping and for both wide and narrowband waveform development.
