BWB is the largest technical authority in Germany and the centralized procurement organization for the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr). This purchase will enhance the software defined radio capabilities within the Bundeswehr and equip WTD 81 with a high performance hardware platform integrated with the necessary software and waveform development tools to support the Software Communications Architecture (SCA).
