Successful live test of R&S SDTR software defined tactical radio at Combined Endeavor 2013

Munich, Oct 28, 2013 - Multinational, i.e. combined missions are the reality today in many worldwide missions. Combined Endeavor is the largest international exercise for interoperable communications between the armies of mission partners. Each year, the event brings together over 1000 participants from NATO member states, Partnership for Peace countries and industry. The objective is to conduct interoperability tests under combat conditions to ensure reliable communications during missions. At the event in Grafenwöhr, 25 of the 40 participating nations watched a live demonstration of the new tactical R&S SDTR software defined radio from Rohde & Schwarz.

The R&S SDTR is an open platform that provides the ideal base for porting allies’ waveforms, meeting the need for interoperability between nations during missions. During several technical presentations, Rohde & Schwarz also demonstrated its expertise in the area of high data rate waveforms and software defined radios (SDR). Rohde & Schwarz and its partner company EID successfully performed interoperability tests conducted by the Portuguese Army integrating the R&S SDTR together with VoIP telephones, IP video cameras, BMS and EID’s TWH-101 personal radio.
