The Indústria de Material Bélico do Brasil (IMBEL) has selected Canadian software company NordiaSoft for the Brazilian Armed Forces’ new generation of tactical radios.

Under the deal, the company will provide its Software Communications Architecture (SCA) solutions for Brazil’s new and advanced Software Defined Radios (SDRs).

Multiband Tactical Radio Program project manager major Gustavo Loss said: “We are continuously focused on improving the capabilities of our future tactical communications systems, and the NordiaSoft Embedded Components (eCo) Suite for SCA version 4.1 provides us with the environment we need to speed up the development of our next-generation SDRs.

“We rely on the eCo Suite to address all the SCA requirements that enhance the portability of our waveforms.”

The NordiaSoft eCo Suite for the SCA version 4.1 is a comprehensive Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that allows developers to model, create, deploy and test software components that run in real-time on a wide range of operating environments.

“We rely on the eCo Suite to address all the SCA requirements that enhance the portability of our waveforms.”

The eCo Suite includes tools that are used to develop SCA models, automatically generate all associated source code, monitor and debug SCA systems, and allow any type of human-machine interface (HMI) to control the software-defined tactical radios.

The NordiaSoft solution also includes an SCA Core Framework and a full list of SCA devices implementing the Joint Tactical Networking Center (JTNC) and the Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnF) application programming interfaces (APIs).

NordiaSoft chief executive officer Claude Bélisle said: “NordiaSoft is pleased to contribute to the development of the future SDR capabilities of the Brazilian Armed Forces.

“The SCA is the most advanced open specification for software defined systems (SDS). We work closely with industry and R&D labs to always remain at the forefront of the technology.

“We provide commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions that allow our users to concentrate on their field of expertise, reducing costs and accelerating time to production.”
