SCA-based software-defined radios: Vision, reality, and current status - Story

October 09, 2015
The SCA 2.2.2 architecture has achieved significant success in the military-communications market. Hundreds of thousands of SCA-enabled software-defined radios (SDRs) have been deployed to date; worldwide, dozens of programs are working to field more of these types of radios. The success of SDR lies in the benefits brought through adoption of the SCA specification: proven cost and delivery-time advantages, enhanced intercomponent interoperability, simplified insertion of new communications capabilities in deployed radios, and reduced development risk. Additional countries and new organizations have begun to explore the use of the SCA, which is driving a second generation of SDR market adoption.
