Asian Air Force Selected the RAFAEL BNET SDR Communication System
BNET-AR communication system has been selected by an Asian air force to install it in its aircraft fleet. Robust data link and voice solutions are provided by the BNET family of SDR. It supports a simultaneous service of voice, video, and data, having two multiple auto relays. The BNET SDR Communication System is used by many air forces around the world and is operational and combat-proven. It contains a unique radio with patented software, delivers a wideband communication system with low delays, network architecture, and reliable connectivity.
BNET-AR, a modular multiband SDR variant, will be supplied for the airborne platforms, helicopters, and Ground Control Stations equipped with the same BNET-AR, integrated onboard fighters, real-time situation awareness, and net-centric operations are enabled. Utilizing the spectral arena of the battlefield cognitively to the fullest, the BNET family is a Spectrum-Aware SDR system. Using such technology, the challenges to the modern battlefield can be addressed easily (e.g., limited spectrum, connecting multiple shooters and sensors).
MCR (multi-channel reception) technology analyzes and receives information from numerous frequency channels using a single RF head. Yoav Wermuth, the head of Rafael’s C3I directorate, claimed that their position has been strengthened with the help of the new contracts and as their position as vital enablers, as the major suppliers of aerial communication systems, allow fast development, required to be agile, remain robust and highly scalable in the chaotic situation, having the ability to operate under cyber-attacks and constant jamming.
