Trade Publication
The article offers information on software-defined radios (SDRs), and its application for different standards. It states that SDRs rely on a minimal number of microwave components to receive and transmit radio signals. It mentions that SDRs for tactical applications are typically designed as either handheld or mobile radios, although they are often sold under the designation of being joint tactical radio system (JTRS) handheld, manpack, and small form fit (HMS) radios.
