Artificial Intelligence GPS-Disciplined SDR for Telecomm, Defense, Aerospace

Deepwave Digital has release a new Artificial Intelligence Radio Transceiver (AIR-T) Edge Series model, the AIR8201. The AIR8201 AIR-T features a rugged enclosure, enhanced receive gain, improved noise figure, a GPS-disciplined oscillator, and an extended frequency range. It allows for edge data processing, adaptive communications, spectrum management, and signals intelligence (SIGINT) to be performed in an industrial-grade software-defined radio (SDR).

The AIR8201 incorporates an NVIDIA Jetson TX2i industrial-grade embedded GPU processor, an industrial grade Xilinx FPGA, and the Analog Devices 9371 RF transceiver. These key components are built upon to include many performance enhancements including:

  • Industrial-grade specification of temperature, shock, and vibration
  • IP56 rated environmental enclosure (Certification Pending)
  • Improved receiver performance:
    • Expanded frequency range of 30 MHz to 6 GHz
    • Additional 28 dB of Receive Gain
    • 2.2 dB Noise Figure
  • Up to 500 GB of flash storage

The AIR8201 AIR-T includes traditional processing with FPGA and CPU processors. The ability to perform GPU processing enables the latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and deep-learning technologies to solve the most challenging problems in telecommunications, spectrum management, and defense and aerospace applications such as cognitive radio, signal detection, classification, and localization. The AIR-T is being used today across multiple industries in applications covering commercial telecommunications, defense signals intelligence, electronic warfare, and research into AI applications in RF signal processing.
