VITA 49: The Future of Software Radio, Part 2

by Rodger Hosking, Vice President, Pentek

The use of software radio technology has spread to almost every commercial, consumer, government, industrial, and military platform across the entire radio frequency spectrum during the technology's 25-year lifespan. Innovations in data converter technology, DSP devices, system interconnects, processors, software, design tools, and packaging techniques have improved performance levels and reduced the size, weight, and power consumption of software radio systems. However, the rapid surge in software radio applications spawned ad hoc, proprietary interfaces between the elements in these systems.

VITA 49: The Future of Software Radio

More than ten years ago, government and military customers realized this complexity was undermining software radio's reliability and maintainability as well as hindering feature upgrades and technology refresh cycles. They also wanted to improve compatibility between vendors and reuse software radio hardware platforms for different types of signals and new applications in the future. So those interested in addressing these issues started work on VITA 49.0, which became known as VRT, for VITA Radio Transport.

Pentek Webcast
April 17, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

As enemy threats become more complicated and sophisticated, there is within the Department of Defense (DoD) a demand for advanced RF and microwave solutions to counter those threats. Spectrum dominance, electronic warfare (EW), radar upgrades, and other sensor applications require system designers to leverage multifunction, multi-platform systems while also reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP) throughout these systems.

This webcast will discuss how emerging standards help meet the challenges of platform flexibility, reusability of hardware and software, quick reaction to new threats, and insertion of new technology.

Pentek Webcast
May 15, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Demand is at an all-time high for advanced communications systems and components that support simultaneous and secure voice, video, and data sharing. Systems engineers and integrators, as well as end users, face a growing number of requirements and challenges, however.

This webinar discusses the value of software-defined radios in the design, development, prototyping, and testing of communications systems that address: the increasingly congested, complex spectrum environment; heterogeneous networks; interoperability and compatibility; hardware and software integration; and security and transmission requirements and standards.
