Tel Aviv: Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems’ BNET SDR ground communication has been selected for installation on vehicular platforms of an Asian army.
The contract was signed on January 29, following a thorough and intensive tender process. Various international communication companies completed the tender, at the end of which BNET was chosen as the optimal solution for the programme.
Delivery will commence this year.
BNET Software-Defined Radios (SDR) is a family of advanced, tactical broadband IP-MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Network) that provides reliable high-speed, low-delay connectivity for broadband data, voice and video on-the-move for ground and airborne platforms, HQs, and dismounted soldiers. The modular, multi-band, multi-channel, net-centric system enables unprecedented data rates and user numbers enabling all land, sea and air units to participate in a single, scalable network.
BNET has the ability to cognitively manage the scarce spectrum resources, providing seamless force merge and minimal planning with efficient spectrum usage.
VP Yoav Wermuth, Head of Rafael’s C3I Directorate, said, “This new contract reflects the international recognition of BNET’s advantages and Rafael’s position as a major supplier of advanced communication systems, which serve as vital enablers of the digital transformation revolution in advanced modern military organisations.”
