Software Defined Radio and Electronic Warfare System

Using a COTS-based jump-start mission management systems as a hardware starting point, a jump-start system significantly speeds and eases the development of a high performance mission processing through pre-qualification, pre-integration and pre-validation of the rugged system. The system integrator customizes the system by adding the application-specific software and/or expanding the base system with additional components required for their sensors and program needs.

Many new Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Electronic Warfare (EW) systems are being deployed on small platforms requiring sophisticated capabilities, such as GigaHertz (GHz) sampling rates and FPGA-based processing to handle the data rates. The Curtiss-Wright VPX3-530 ADC/DAC meets these requirements within a compact 3U OpenVPX form factor, enabling highly effective SDR and EW implementations.

Curtiss-Wright’s mid-size SDR and EW System enables customers to select their preferred RF tuner and software applications (i.e. GNU Radio, Red Hawk or SCA). By provides up to sixteen analog inputs (12-bit up to 2 Gsps) and eight (14-bit < 2.8 Gsps output channels), the SDR and EW system is easily able to interface L-band or S-band RF frequencies. The SDR is built from COTS products. The system consists of five 3U VPX modules, one XMC module, a power supply, backplane and front panel assemblies housed in a MPMC-9354 chassis designed to operate in rugged environments.
