Abstract
Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology and solutions are proven and capable. However, the cost of the systems limits their immediate use outside of military applications. Beside the cost of the SDR systems, it has been difficult to develop SDR concepts and prototypes on platforms that have clear migration paths to become commercial products. EFJI and Virginia Tech propose to develop a versatile Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform that is flexible and scalable in capabilities, functions and cost for a wide range of solutions from inexpensive single-function, single channel radio to high-performance multi-application, multi-channel communications system. New software, hardware, modeling and simulation architecture will be developed for versatility and cost reduction. The platform will be offered in commercial form factor to researchers and practitioners for development with interface to proprietary features to shorten the time from concepts to products. The design will leverage OSSIE (The Open Source SCA Implementation: Embedded).
