Abstract


Since World War-II, world is developing newer communication radio continuously by spending efforts, money and assets. After digital communication systems are invented, the development is rapidly progressing at every country. With globalization in mind, country-to-country starts interacting with each other and begins to share their radios too for operations. In military-to-military contact, there exists a problem of incompatibility of radios between friendly countries. With the Software inventions and mathematical processor improvements, Software Defined Radio (SDR) started appearing in both military and commercial world. We explore the SDR and suggest some Universal standards in Software Communication Architecture (SCA) which can be followed for mitigating the interoperability problem. With SCA-compliant-SDR, the radio can be reconfigured with high flexibility for multi-band-multi-mode capability with maximum portability.
