3U VPX Software Defined Radio (SDR) Solution

Software Defined Radio (SDR) provides flexible, upgradeable and longer lifetime radio equipment for wireless communication infrastructure. Modern communication systems require high-reliability processing and highly specialized digital processing and I/O. Regardless of the algorithm and waveforms, SDR requires high-performance signal acquisition building blocks. Curtiss-Wright offers a range of rugged signal acquisition products ready for integration with processing and Radio Frequency (RF) electronics for deployment. These applications have a number of components working together within a size, weight and power (SWaP) constrained system which pave the way for bi-directional encrypted communication systems.

The MPMC-9351 based system provides a configurable, high bandwidth, low latency display processor in a compact low-power form factor. The system is backed by unprecedented processing power and the flexibility to meet the needs of deployable systems. It is designed to meet the harsh environments of many military computing applications while satisfying the software, processing, and compress needs in a fully qualified and packaged system solution.

Overall, the system can be quickly configured to meet the needs of any military or aerospace requirements, and is designed to meet or exceed the DO-160F environmental conditions for airborne equipment and is capable of passing numerous environmental tests, including harsh avionics and vehicular environments.
