ESSOR - EUROPEAN SECURE SOFTWARE DEFINED RADIO
The ESSOR program seeks to enhance the interoperability of mission-critical radio connectivity assets across domains. It achieves this through the development of two key ESSOR Products: Software Defined Radios (SDR) terminals and Waveforms (WFs), both built on a common architecture and methodology.
The waveforms adhere to the international standard Software Communications Architecture (SCA), facilitating software portability among national military SDR platforms. ESSOR’s approach involves a set of rules and methodology guidance for waveform development, employing the “BaseWF paradigm” with a common Base Waveform phase and subsequent Porting phase for implementation on national radio terminals.
Notable ESSOR activities include:
- co-developing tactical data link waveforms and terminals for various classes (EMIDS);
- standardizing waveforms development for porting on national radio platforms, covering Tactical Ground Communications (EHDRWF, ENBWF), Air-Ground-Air Communication (E3DWF), and Satellite Communication (ESATWF).
