SYNAPS is a new range of Software Defined Radio (SDR) products including hand-held, vehicle, airborne, naval and fixed site versions.
What makes a good SDR is the combination of hardware and software. All SYNAPS radio designs combine the best of both worlds to deliver outstanding RF performance and advanced waveform options for extended range capabilities and connectivity in the theatre. A new set of UHF waveforms further enhances situational awareness and support joint collaborative engagements on the battlefield:
• UHF-Command, a secure national broadband waveform for high data rates
• UHF-Combat for collaborative combat capabilities
• ESSOR, a secure broadband waveform for allied interoperability
• AirPower for high-speed intraflight exchanges between aircraft, and for ground-to-air coordination.
With these new waveforms and VHF waveforms enabling backward interoperability with previous generation of Thales radios, SYNAPS radios have all the capabilities of a joint C4ISR backbone to interconnect land, air and naval platforms and break down operational silos.
