- Ready solution for low Earth orbit (LEO) flight and air missions
- Standalone module with a credit card size weighing 100 grams
- 4 TX / 4 RX channels, adjustable from 300 MHz to 6 GHz with 100 MHz RF bandwidth per channel
- Support custom waveform with 70% FPGA resources for custom designs
- Comes with a default CSMA network modem with SpaceWire and Ethernet connectivity
Designed to meet the demanding launch requirements as well as the extreme conditions of space and air, the SDR-1001 integrates a flexible RF interface with a high-performance FPGA to maintain a mission duration of 5 to 7 years. Mil-Spec connectors provide access to radio frequency signals and allow both SpaceWire and Ethernet connectivity. Integrated reservation and cancellation logic
