Rohde & Schwarz offer multiband, multirole, multimode software defined radios for tactical operations.
Rohde & Schwarz M3TR
Modern military operations typically involve collaboration between international military forces. To ensure efficient communication between these different forces, it is essential to have interoperable equipment - particularly in terms of communications. The R&S® M3TR provides optimal flexibility in waveform and frequency for nearly all platforms and services.
Rohde&Schwarz M3TR next generation, high-spec software defined radios are a major development in terms of both cost and technology in tactical communications. The integrated communications system is based on the low-weight MR300XH/U maniac transmitter/receiver with bandwidths between 1.5MHz and 108 MHz or between 25MHz and 512 MHz. This supports all forms of tactical communications and simplifies coordination between forces. A portable, handheld model (The R&S® MR3000P) completes the range. As with the mano=pack radios, the MR3000P enables both secure and open communications.
Software Defined Radio
Until recently, support for different networks and services demanded different radios. The Rohde&Schwarz M3TR spans the full spectrum from high frequency to VH and ultra high frequency radio. This enables a high level of interoperability together with easier communication between services. The frequency capabilities of the R&S® M3TR adhere to multinational regulations and facilitate worldwide operation in rapidly evolving environments and scenarios.
Software radios provide both integration with existing standards and datable networking solutions. Through a combination of optimised waveforms and protocols, the Rohde & Schwarz M3TR provides optimal throughput for both position determination and data, video and voice communications.
Software defined radios can be effortlessly integrated with tactical commas networks. A software defined radio can be used either as a terminal in a particular subnet (CNR, PRN, etc) or provide an interface between different subnets. The Rohde&Schwarz M3TR can be deployed on a broad range of platforms and can provide an interface for fixed LAN and WAN networks and an intelligent gateway with rebroadcast / relay utilities such as routing of specific calls for subscribers within or external to the home network.
