India’s First Indigenous Manpack SDR

Secure and Reliable Military Communication Systems DESIGNED, OWNED, AND MADE IN INDIA

The tactical radio is an indigenously designed, developed, and manufactured software defined radio (SDR) for secure military communication.SDR/Manpack is jointly developed by Saankhya Labs and Cyient. The manpack SDR supports military communication over VHF/UHF frequency band in MANET environment. The SDR is powered by a fully-programmable SDR- baseband chipset from Saankhya Labs. A suite of custom waveforms developed in-house from the ground-up, ensures the highest level of ComSec and TranSec security.
The SDR supports a wide variety of narrow band and wide band waveforms including single carrier and multi-carrier OFDM. It is designed to offer flexibility for a range of operational requirements of the Indian defence forces. The SDR is both frequency agile and bandwidth agile supporting BW from 1KHz-8MHz. It is payload agnostic and is configurable to support voice, audio, video, and data. Additionally, it also supports a sophisticated GIS map for location services.
