Artificial Intelligence GPS-Disciplined SDR for Telecomm, Defense, Aerospace – Inside GNSS

Deepwave Digital has launched a new model of radio receiver with artificial intelligence (AIR-T) Edge Series, AIR8201. AIR8201 AIR-T features a robust body, improved reception, improved noise figure, oscillator, disciplined by GPS, and extended frequency range. It allows end data processing, adaptive communications, spectrum management and signal intelligence (SIGINT) to be performed in industry-class software-defined radio (SDR).

The AIR8201 includes an NVIDIA Jetson TX2i built-in GPU, Xilinx FPGAs, and 9371 RF transceivers. These key components are built to include many performance improvements, including:

  • Industry class specification for temperature, shock and vibration
  • IP56 environmental protection class (pending certification)
  • Improved receiver performance:
    • Extended frequency range from 30 MHz to 6 GHz
    • An additional 28 dB of gain
    • 2.2 dB Noise figure
  • Up to 500 GB flash memory

AIR8201 AIR-T includes traditional processing with FPGA and CPU processors. GPU processing capability enables the latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning technologies to address the most challenging issues in telecommunications, spectrum management and defense, and space applications such as cognitive radio, signal detection , classification and localization. AIR-T is used today in many industries in applications covering commercial telecommunications, defense signal intelligence, electronic warfare, and artificial intelligence applications in radio frequency signal processing.
