Flexible software defined radio (SDR) solutions are designed in-house. The radios combine tunable transmitter and receiver functionality into one compact design. The radios are perfect for small satellites looking for flexibility and high data rates – up to 100 Mbps (Cubesat) / 440 Mbps (Microsat).
They are compatible with Type-1 encryption modules such as the KI-55 and KI-103 and can support AES-256 GCM soft- ware encryption natively. Their form factor is compatible with various models to support CubeSats and Microsats. Qualified for LEO and GEO orbits.
BCT SDR products are designed for interoperability with industry standard ground networks such as KSAT, SSC, AFSCN, and NEN. Customization is available for most parameters in this document. Full product lines include UHF, L-band, S-band, X-band, Ka-band.
