Spectrum's SDR-4000 Selected by TUBITAK UEKAE for Testing, Porting and Demonstration Activities for the Turkish Armed Forces

Spectrum Signal Processing by Vecima ("Spectrum") announced that the National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology (UEKAE), an affiliate of The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), will use Spectrum's flexComm SDR-4000 transceiver for the development and deployment of tactical radio waveforms. TUBITAK UEKAE will also port two different waveforms to the SDR-4000 for demonstration to the Turkish Ministry of Defense: an implementation of STANAG 4285 for high frequency (HF) radio links and APCO Project 25 (P25) for public safety links.

TUBITAK UEKAE is in the last phase of a project with an objective to build a universal test bed that will be used to develop and test SCA-compliant waveforms according to Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) requirements, and to execute SCA compliance test and verification on advanced software defined radios that will be supplied to the TAF.

The SDR-4000 is a multi-purpose reconfigurable transceiver that supports a diverse array of waveforms including:

  • Wideband Networking Waveform - Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing mode (WNW OFDM
  • Soldier Radio Waveform - Electronic Warfare mode (SRW EW)
  • Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS)
  • Future Multiband Multiwaveform Modular Tactical Radio (FM3TR)
  • APCO Project (P25)

The SDR-4000 is available in air-cooled packaging for benign environments or conduction-cooled packaging for deployments in harsh environments. The SDR-4000 comes with a comprehensive software stack including an SCA Core Framework with development tools, Spectrum's quicComm hardware abstraction layer and API library, and a POSIX-compliant real-time operating system (RTOS) with an integrated development environment.
